Big Data for Industry 4.0
Digital manufacturing, referred to as Industry 4.0, uses intelligent sensors and control systems to allow real-time optimization of manufacturing and supply chain networks. In this scenario, the proper management of the huge amount and variety of data gathered by sensors and control systems, referred to as Big Data, represent a challenge that can be faced in a business point-of-view, considering the designing, developing and management of hi-tech companies.
The summer school will provide an effective multidisciplinary learning environment through the Open Innovation Lab concept already in place in the area of Bologna, by putting together students, university, and companies in an inclusive, dynamic and multidisciplinary environments toward the advancement of the whole Industry 4.0 ecosystem via collaborative interaction between all main actors.
Moreover, informal meetings with the entrepreneurial local community will be arranged to foster exchange and generate new business ideas. Traditional classes will be integrated with other less formal teaching activities, more active and participated, by merging different ways of involving students, which will also address training soft skills:
- user-centric service design;
- business plan and lean approach;
- pitch preparation and attention to details;
- creativity in innovation.
The availability of the local Open Innovation Lab (OIL) is an important asset for the summer school. The OIL initiative is along the Digital Industry action line, since it puts together all stakeholders in a unique community toward the advancement of the whole I4.0 ecosystem while create a better efficiency in exchanging information on the whole process of managing big data collection, aggregation, analysis and visualization to design new services toward the production of a decentralized management to enhance the complete product lifecycle.
The synergies that will be developed within the OIL systems by share knowledges will provide for innovative ways to understand Industry 4.0 as a whole.
The Summer School will be organized by the University of Bologna at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro (Centro Universitario di Bertinoro - CeUB).
