Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is about decision support systems in advanced manufacturing technology, based on industrial metrology tools and procedures. The course includes an extensive review of advanced manufacturing processes and industrial metrology tools, methods, algorithms and their applicability, configurations, subsystems, structure, design and operational capability. During the course, extensive training is given in handling and evaluation of production and measurement data through use of applicable statistical tools and algorithms for machine learning to receive and account result with traceability. The course intends to teach the students how measuring techniques assist decision support in advanced production. On completion of the course, the students will be able to apply new knowledge through three main activities : design, carry out and document personal research.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

  1. Describe advanced manufacturing processes
  2. Explain the importance of metrology (measurement technology) in advanced manufacturing processes
  3. Describe methods and instruments that are used industry for metrology purposes
  4. Evaluate measurement and manufacturing data by use of suitable statistical tools and algorithms for machine learning
  5. Apply decision support systems for advanced manufacturing
