Digital Manufacturing Training System for SMEs

The Digit-T project developed a freely available on-line e-learning platform and well-structured open access book on Digital Manufacturing, including: a complete overview on the digitalization in industry; a nest structure that allows a gradual deepening of the subjects and a broader target audience (e.g. layperson, manager, technician, researcher); simple language; examples and applications that give an idea on the potentials and illustrate the steps to follow; innovative course based on methods like gamification to maximize engagement, motivation and experience of the user during the learning process; open access platform with easy access and search; downloadable learning materials; multi-lingual training support; a supporting text book; economic and business considerations. The main target of this training system are SMEs, because of the difficult access to such knowledge due to their limited size, time and financial capacities. Nevertheless, the training material is absolutely suitable also for large companies dealing with the challenges of digitization.
