Program Description

Master in Smart and Connected Enterprise (I-ENG SCE)

Centrale Nantes

The aim of this specialism is to introduce the new paradigms of company management based on new information environments and systems, including cyber-physical systems. At the conclusion of the program, students should be able to model an enterprise, to simulate and optimize its performance, to model and develop solutions for interoperability between information systems, based on ontologies and multi-view models at different scales (shop floor, factory, company, extended enterprise). New technologies like IoT, smart and agile organizations, etc., and interaction technologies, like virtual and augmented reality, will be integrated into the courses. The place of humans in new smart organizations will also be considered. There is a strong link with the other specialism - Agile Factory Management.
