This module is designed to provide extensive hands-on practise training on basic skills of common
measurement processes, characterisation methods and data analysis encountered in advanced
manufacturing. The module consists of 26 sessions (80 hours in total) which will offer participants the
opportunity to learn and operate the measurement/inspection equipment and analytical instruments in
A*STAR laboratories to reinforce their knowledge learned from the technical skill modules. A*STAR domain
experts from the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), Advanced Remanufacturing
and Technology Centre (ARTC) and National Metrology Centre (NMC) will provide guidance and facilities to
host this training module.
Under the guidance of the experienced trainers, the participants are expected to do hands-on work in these three categories:
Inspection Process Skills Training – Participants will have hands-on experience on cutting-edge
inspection technologies, including machine vision, 3D scanning, robotic microscopy, AI-assisted
Characterisation Methods and Analyses - Participants will have hands-on experience with digitised characterisation tools that are used for quality verification, including programmable dimensional
measurement, surface characterisation, digital 2D/3D microscopy and optical parameter quantification.
Data Processing and Analysis - Participants will be guided to collect data from inspection systems and perform data analysis. The analytical tasks will include image quality analysis, feature recognition and defect detection.
