Advanced Manufacturing Process Analysis

Participants learn why performing advanced analysis of manufacturing processes is integral for diagnosing and correcting operational flaws in order to improve yields and reduce costs. They will gain insights into the best ways to collect, prepare and analyze data, as well as computational platforms that can be leveraged to collect and process data over sustained periods of time. This is the fourth of nine courses in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology series that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” commonly known as Industry 4.0.

This online course is available on the Coursera platform.

Course Duration: Approximately 4 weeks (2.5-5 hours of effort per week)

Learning Outcomes

  • Boost contributions to an advanced analysis team

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in how digital advances are changing the landscape and capabilities of manufacturing, from high school graduates exploring careers to operations managers and business owners hungry for an understanding of the newest manufacturing technologies
