Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology – SIMTech
The Model Factory@SIMTech features an actual production environment that allows for experiential experimentation and learning of digitalisation technologies for Industry 4.0. Model Factory@SIMTech is part of the Manufacturing Control TowerTM (MCTTM) program, which focuses on technologies for business digital transformation.
From a research standpoint, Model Factory@SIMTech provides the ideal platform for the development of critical technologies such as Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) and flexible automation across the three layers of a manufacturing environment – Shopfloor, Enterprise and Supply Chain. This provides the essential platform for understanding the Sense & Response manufacturing paradigm, and the means to prototype new technologies, as a continuous learning journey for MCTTM.
From an industry viewpoint, Model Factory@SIMTech provides a platform for companies to learn, experiment and most importantly, co-create new technologies for next-generation factories. Next-generation manufacturing technologies will require skill sets that are multi-disciplinary and require continuous learning. Model Factory@SIMTech provides these critical learning and practice opportunities through SIMTech’s proven Learn-Practise-Implement (LPI) model before actual implementation on-site.
Maximum Participants: 12
