Itaian news from automotive: in the while talian car sales rose 3.36% in January, four universities plus an array of firms representing world excellence on two and four wheels are getting together to form a top training hub under the auspices of the Emilia Romagna region.
The Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER) is an association that links the universities of Bologna, Ferrara, Parma/Modena and Reggio Emilia with firms like Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Ducati, Dallara, Haas, Magneti Marelli and Toro Rosso. The fruit of the collaboration are two top English-language master’s university courses starting this September: 120 students will take part in the Advanced Automotive Engineering course; and 30 will aim for a degree in Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering.
The project is unique on the national and international scene, which confirms Italy not only as the European heart of new manufacturing but also as a platform for high-level training with great added value. Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering is a new strategic strategic way to approach automotive market in 4.0 and big data age.
Data logging is strengthening the global economy, according to international statistics, as manufacturers alike are adopting smarter sensor technology to record the way industry makes things.
The World Bank recently released a report predicting worldwide GDP growth in the coming year, as a result of better-monitored manufacturing plants. Within the supply chain, the monitoring and recording of plant efficiency and the ability to track and trace a product from the source to consumer, provides manufacturers with a better understanding of their processes and therefore their cost base. The development of data acquisition systems has become more centred around digital connectivity.
Expert agree that in the quality control stage of a production process, data can provide the manufacturer with the ability to determine conforming and non-conforming product before goods are packed and shipped to a customer, saving both time and money in house and in the field.
