This module covers the general terminology and concepts related to CPS & DT.
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are computational entities that collaborate and interact with the physical world, utilizing data-accessing and processing services available on the internet (Monostori, 2014). Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) are autonomous and cooperative systems that connect at different production levels, including processes, production lines, and logistics networks. Modeling and predicting the behavior of CPPS pose research challenges, particularly in integrating analytical and simulation-based models with their physical counterparts known as Digital Twins (DT). This module provides an overview of CPS and DT terminology, concepts, and their various industrial applications, such as product design, manufacturing systems, planning, optimization, control, and maintenance.
The learning module is a mixture of self-study, webinars, and cross-company exercises.
- Technicians/engineers/managers in the industry who want to know what are CPS and DT as well as their potential applications.
To complete this module, the participant is expected to schedule approximately 4 hours per week over 5 weeks (20 hours in total).
Please note that a minimum of 10 participants is required for the module to start.
After applying to the program, please secure dates in your calendar to be able to join planned webinars and assure time available required for learning.
