Unit of study_

Advanced Process Modelling and Simulation - CHNG5603

Year - 2020

The chemical manufacturing industry is currently witnessing the fourth industrial revolution, better known as Industry 4.0, where the 'real' and the 'virtual' world are connected, giving rise to smart factories. This unit of study prepares students for the digital transformation of chemical factories and the analysis of a large set of numbers from the machines and to turn them into a competitive advantage. The unit comprises three main components: (1) Manufacturing using smart systems (2) Industrial internet of things, and (3) processing big-data through sophisticated data-driven approaches. Various materials and techniques within the discipline of cyber-physical production systems are covered. For example, the industrial internet of things (IoT), communications, interfaces, machine learning, neural network, and deep learning. Students will also learn how to transfer real-time data from a unit operation to a system of software and hardware elements and understand the basics of security of open communications in order to ensure the safe operations of a smart factory.
