Programme Introduction

In the era of digitalisation, manufacturing plants worldwide have progressively transformed and no longer operate in the old traditional way. Demanding customers are setting up a higher expectation of end products with higher accuracy and excellent surface finishing yet lower cost. This only can be done through smart machining and digitalisation with less human intervention.

Companies have to expand their business beyond Singapore; this means more travelling yet at the same time being able to manage and monitor their plant offsite. Thus, it is essential to transform themselves towards smart digitalisation, and high-value precision manufacturing technology couple with Industry 4.0.

Given this trend and to align with the government drive towards digitalisation and a smart nation, this course is specially tailored-made to equip you with the essential knowledge and skill set ready to serve your future employer effectively to lessen the machine downtime through Equipment Condition Monitoring; and to reduce operation costs with Overall Equipment Effectiveness; also to manage Operation Excellence and stay competitive in producing superior quality parts with knowledge transfer touches on Data Mining for Correlation Analysis and Dimensional Measurements & Metrology.
