In this four-week, non-credit course, you will work with a world-class, experienced practitioner-mentor to develop a strategic plan for implementing smart manufacturing within your organization. You’ll engage directly with CESMII’s Smart Manufacturing Acceleration Framework to assess your organization’s current state, develop an aligned future state vision, and create a roadmap to achieve your organization’s business objectives. You’ll exit the course with a comprehensive understanding and experience of roadmap development for your work setting, as well as a Certificate of Completion from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
You’ll begin by exploring smart manufacturing capabilities, then utilize an assessment tool to solicit colleagues’ perspectives on your organization’s current state across six critical smart manufacturing areas. With your assessment results in-hand, you’ll conduct deep-dive interviews with stakeholders to investigate alignment and opportunities across each area – leading to the articulation of a desired future state. You’ll then build a strategic roadmap that defines business objectives for each critical area, programs and initiatives to support those objectives, and a realistic timeline to achieve the future state.
You will complete all coursework through Rensselaer at Work’s digital classroom environment, with guidance and contextualized feedback from your mentor along the way. Synchronous sessions will be held via Zoom each week in the evenings, which will provide an opportunity to connect with your mentor and engage with the content in a live setting. In addition, your mentor will be available to provide one-on-one coaching throughout the course. As a ProCourse participant, you will also receive access to Rensselaer at Work’s expansive digital resource library.
This non-credit course is designed for manufacturers who seek to initiate digital transformation in their organization. Teams are welcome to attend for accelerated results. The cost is $899 per participant. No prior education is required.
