This is the final module in a series of training content to prepare students for the upcoming ASME XRC Challenge: Sustainability Innovations for Ocean Cleanup, hosted by ASME and in partnership with and sponsored by Autodesk.

Industry 4.0 is transforming all sectors with technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and big data, demanding a new workforce equipped with robust digital literacy and data skills. Digital literacy is no longer basic computer usage, but encompasses critical thinking, information evaluation, data security, and responsible participation in the digital world. Data skills involve understanding, collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data to drive informed decision-making and innovation. This module will take you on a journey of how the manufacturing and technology have evolved from traditional manufacturing to digital manufacturing using smart technologies, big data, cloud computing, digital twins, simulation and more, and how data is being used to make engineering decisions. 

In this module you will learn: 

  • Overview of the manufacturing process and how we got to the era of digital manufacturing. 
  • What is digital literacy and how it is tied to digital manufacturing.
  • How manufacturing is slowly transitioning to smart manufacturing and the top technologies driving this change.
  • The role of big data and how it is used in manufacturing.
  • The differentiation between simulation and digital twins and how they are used to optimize manufacturing processes.
  • How cloud computing is used to store and process data and its advantages. 
  • Role of digital literacy and data skills in real-time collaboration. 

Who Should Attend?
This module is intended for participants of the ASME XRC Challenge: Sustainability Innovations for Ocean Cleanup, as well as undergraduate, graduate and early-career engineers who are interested in design for engineering.
