"Leveraging Indus- try 4.0 Toward Zero-Downtime, Zero-Defects Manufacturing," another brand-new course, will benefit not only executives leading oper- ations of manufacturing companies, but also directors, managers, and advanced data sci- ence professionals. Abuali says of the course, "Although some have already begun their journey, many man- ufacturers are still talking about digitizing their manufacturing floor and wondering if it's a wor thwhile investment. In d u s t r y 4 . 0 d e s c r i b e s the evolution of industry toward interconnectivity, a u t o m a t i o n , a d v a n c e d a n a l y t i c s , a n d b a s i n g dec i s ions on real-t ime da ta c a p tu r e f r o m t h e shop floor." is course will provide attendee s w ith a broad u n d e r s t a n d i n g o f k e y Industry 4.0 solutions that marry physical produc- tion and operations with Smart digital technology, plant c o n n e c t i v i t y, a r t i - f i c ia l intelligence, and predictive analytics—all to create a connected ecosystem for organizations to level up their uptime, quality, and overall productivity. Dr. Nahid Majd, associate professor in com- puter science at California State University San Marcos, will demystify the topics of "Block- chain, NFT, Cryptocurrency and Metaverse," and discuss how these applications might be used in supply chain management for electron- ics manufacturing. The oppor tunities are great in manu- facturing, Dr. Majd says. "NFTs could pro- vide tr ust wor thy maintenance of digital data associated with each electronic product that has been manufactured, tested, and used in an electronic device," says Dr. Majd. "Also, because NFTs contain an immutable record of transactions on the blockchain, any third party can easily confirm the origin and ownership of a product." is brand-new course will offer attendees another option for bringing their factories into the future. Continuing the Factory of the Future course offerings, Michael Ford, senior director of emerging industry strategy at Aegis Soware, will teach a course titled "Application of IPC Smar t and Secure Dig- i t a l Tr a n s f o r m a t i o n St a n d a r d s ."

Ford will be joined by a team of industry leaders from many companies across the indus- try who will explain how the adoption of solu- tions based on each of these standards can map out the most practical and cost-effec- tive path toward Smart digital transformation. e course is geared toward managers and engineers of both OEM and EMS companies and will reach across all disciplines of design and manufacturing, including production, e n g i n e e r i n g , q u a l i t y , s u p p l y - c h a i n , maintenance, design, lifecycle management, automation projects, and finally, information technology.
