Introduction to Industry 4.0 is a program designed to introduce to the participants about the key design principles and components of the new revolution, its key challenges, and the new potential opportunities for the entire value chain of the implementation. In the current industry environment, providing high-end quality service or product with the least cost is the key to success and industrial factories are trying to achieve as much performance as possible to increase their profit as well as their reputation. In this way, various data sources are available to provide worthwhile information about different aspects of the factory. In this stage, the utilization of data for understanding current operating conditions and detecting faults and failures is an important topic to research. In contrast, in an Industry 4.0 factory, in addition to condition monitoring and fault diagnosis, components and systems are able to gain self-awareness and self-predictive, which will provide management with more insight on the status of the factory.


By the end of the course, participants will be able to understand how the system integration works between various aspects of the Industry 4.0 which include Supply Chain, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Additive Manufacturing, Autonomous Robot, Augmented Reality, Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and Horizontal & Vertical Integration. Participants will also be introduced to the basic understanding of each pillar which include its working principles, benefits, pro and cons, and key challenges.

Participants are introduced to ERP systems and how to navigate within the SAP eco-systems. This follows with methods to customize ERP within each project scale and requirements.

Subsequently participants get a hands-on training with an interactive business simulation (MonsoonSim) – of concepts learned via running a virtual company pitting against other virtual companies. 

To further enhance participants’ skills with technical knowledge, Learning-Hub with an open cloud-based portal – allows research and reference of ERP specialization pertinent to participants’ domain.

By the end of the course each student will have a basic understanding of the most integrated module of SAP with knowledge of all the integration points to calculate standard cost, work in process, variances even for the most complex manufacturing processes.
