Course Overview

Virtual manufacturing (VM) is the use of computer models to define, simulate and visualise the critical operations and equipment in a factory. With virtual manufacturing models, engineers could cost-effectively simulate and evaluate the virtual products, new fabrication processes and controls before setting up the production line physically.  In this course, participants will be introduced to the main technologies used in VM namely computer-aided design (CAD), 3D modelling and simulation software, product lifecycle management (PLM), virtual reality, high-speed networking and rapid prototyping. Via a digital twin industry use case deployed at the smart factory within Temasek Polytechnic Advanced Manufacturing Centre, the participants will learn to evaluate the interaction between design and automation right from the design phase for both serial and parallel processes.
