The latest 4 Education Modules C9-C12

A summary

Of the four modules below , two started to be developed spring 2020 (C10 and C11) by KTH The Royal Institute of Technology and Eurostep (C10) & Mälardalen University, Linaeus University and Skövde University in co-operation with the Prtner Companies Westermo, ABB, Combitech and RISE (C11).  The current call is still open for Universities and companies intrested in participating. The modules are made in co-operation with "Partner" Universities and "Partner" Industries to promote a mix of recognised experts and organisations contributing to the top of the range education aimed for.

(Partner Industries and Universities may change during the final implementations of the course modules).

C9 Vizualization, Augumented Reality, and Virtual Reality Interfaces

C10 Standards and Interoperability in Digitized Industry

Module Summary

The smart industry is a fully connected and flexible system that can use data streamed from connected operations and engineering- and production systems. In a digital environment, information will flow through many different computer systems and services. Interoperability is fundamental, since that is what makes it possible to exchange and share information in a digitally connected environment. What is more important is that there are well-defined information protocols that can represent the types of information that different computer systems and services conform to.
•The module on Interoperability and standards in digitized industry will give an understanding of how standards enable interoperability, in the sense that information should flow seamlessly between the computer systems and services in a connected system. Many different standards exist and are in development for the digitized industry. However, it is difficult to know which standard to use, and how to use it, without prior knowledge and experience. This module will provide an overview of existing standards and the standard bodies and communities that are of relevance to smart industry.
•Standards for the exchange and sharing of product data come in many shapes and flavours when it comes to the technology and methods that are used. For example, when developing a standard the information model is the key product of the standard together with so-called implementation methods. In this module, the major information modelling languages used in different standards will be presented to give an understanding of the key concepts. Using a standard for exchange and sharing of product data means that a format is needed, such as for example XML or JSON, via an API, or as a data exchange file. Methods that are used to create those formats from an information model is presented in this module.
•A selection of the most relevant standards will be presented to give an understanding of the scope, content and intended use of the information models of those standards.
•The different types of computer systems used in smart industry and how they relate to the relevant standards will also be presented. Examples of types of computer systems, or applications, used are CAD, CAM, CAPP, PDM/PLM, ERP, MES, and maintenance management.
•The data exchange, or sharing, process implies that information needs to be extracted and then mapped to the target system. This module will give an understanding of how this can be done using structured methods and what type of tools and technology are involved.

The Sub-modules

The three sub-modules cover interoperability and standards, Details of important standards in digitized industry and Applications.

Summaries and learning outcomes (under development)

Each sub-module have a set of Learning outcomes attached to visualise the expected outcomes in a clear way.  Below is a summary of the sub-module content and the associated learning outcomes.

C11 Cyber Security, Industrial Data Protection and Data Integrity

Module Summary

This module addresses the concepts of data privacy, integrity and security in the context of Industry 4.0, cyber-physical production systems and connected industry. It provides learners with basic cyber-security definitions and models as well as practical information to achieve information systems certification against international standards and regulations like ISO 27001 and GDPR. The course will cover data classification and encryption standards (e.g. AES), public key cryptography and digital signatures/certificates, redundancy and backup mechanisms, user authentication and biometric identification, risk and vulnerability assessment, threat modeling, malware analysis, network monitoring, intrusion prevention and detection, and physical security.
The module will be developed considering the expected audience that is students who have a general BSc knowledge in Mechanical engineering having attended courses in material technology and production processes/systems but have a more limited background in computer science and engineering.

The Sub-modules

The three sub-modules cover Intro to Cyber security, Industrial network security and standards.
