Prerequisites

A basic knowledge of digital tools for industrial design (e.g., Solid Edge) is recommended

Educational goals

At the end of the course, students will acquire both theoretical and applicative knowledge and skills related to the field of "digital innovation" in the manufacturing sector mastering both technological and managerial aspects. In particular, students will have a good knowledge of how to face the problems in a smart and digital factory using the additive manufacturing technologies as an example and understanding their strategic, commercial and economic implications. Different software will be used for modeling, printing, simulation of the process, creating a sort of digital twin.

Course content

Introduction and general information on what “digital factory” and “digital manufacturing” mean.
Notes on intelligent production systems.
Description of the project work and introduction to the use of the necessary software.
Laboratory activities and case studies.
Analysis of economic feasibility and commercialization
The most applicative part will be the development and realization of a component as a demonstrator able to represent the main aspects to be addressed in the field of the "digital factory". The idea is to use this activity to translate the theoretical concepts presented during the lessons into the current productive context. This will be done by designing a piece using CAD, analyzing costs and times necessary for production, simulating the process, creating the piece and measuring it to identify where to improve.
Students will perform a managerial analysis of the commercialization of the new product and on the economic feasibility.
Presentation and discussion of relevant case studies from the point of view of "digital fabrication".

Assessment and Evaluation

The final evaluation will take place through the discussion of an applicative project work (concerning the issues of "digital manufacturing") carried out in the laboratories of the University of Bergamo.
