Training, a mainstay for the development of Industry 4.5

The adoption of digitalization and industry 4.0 implies the introduction of new technologies in production plants, with the potential to reduce manufacturing costs by 10 to 20 percent, according to the forecasts of the Fraunhofer Institute of Engineering Manufacturing and Automation, opening a new paradigm of advanced and sustainable manufacturing, marked by technological hybridization. Digitization offers the industry the opportunity to optimize resources and processes so that decision-making regarding the products and services offered is aligned with the real needs of the market. Thanks to the new manufacturing and prototyping processes, and tools of Artificial Intelligence, robotics and Big Data, among other new mechanisms, it can be more agile and more efficient at the same time in the market.

Both large companies and SMEs must be prepared to respond to market demands, with maximum agility and efficiency. This requires continuous adaptation, given that new technologies are setting very fast and demanding patterns and rhythms. In parallel, the fields of specialization are increasingly complex, a fact that makes Eurecat's multi technological capabilities very interesting, with a high degree of specialization in five areas of knowledge: Industrial, Digital, Sustainability, Biotechnology, and Innovation.

In this scenario, Eurecat's vocation to transfer technological knowledge to companies is part of the conviction that having a professional team trained in new technologies and with the ability to anticipate its impact on a business key is essential to anticipate and mark the difference. For this reason, the center provides technological training with a high practical component and great academic rigor, focused on the application of knowledge to solve the most immediate problems and needs of companies of all sizes and sectors.

To help facilitate this necessary adaptation of the industrial and business fabric to the digital transformation, Eurecat and the Institute of Continuing Education of the University of Barcelona offer a specific postgraduate degree, which offers a diploma of specialization in Industry 4.0 by IL3-UB. The content is aimed at facilitating the implementation of digital transformation projects to industrial-based companies, contributing to the optimization of their resources and that includes visits to Eurecat laboratories, where students conduct practical sessions in subjects such as 3D printing and robotics and see the applicability and benefits they offer with a clear business orientation.

The training program is online and provides students with the necessary tools to implement digital transformation projects of a process, an area or a department to industrial-based companies, assimilating the fundamentals of digitalization and technologies enablers that give rise to what is known as Industry 4.0.

The postgraduate course ranges from the new paradigms for all industries and the fundamentals of an Industry 4.0 model to the transformative elements at the business level, and includes technologies such as the "Internet of things", robotics, virtual and augmented reality, additive manufacturing, and 3D printing and the Blockchain. It also devotes attention to the product life cycle, as well as to processes and systems, the application of industrial design to the new industry, to production 4.0 proposals, in logistics and preventive maintenance, in addition to addressing the interoperability of the IT information and the strategy, implementation and impact of digitalization in the organization. Likewise,

In this sense, the new digital and connected factory must be prepared to adapt to the continuous and rapid changes that occur, to generate new opportunities and to give greater prominence to the professionals who will work. This is where Eurecat wants to be the ally that facilitates technological innovation in companies that want to join and serve as an inspiration to help develop a more sustainable, profitable and efficient industry.
