  • Have gained an understanding of autonomy classifications 
  • Have gained an understanding of interoperability challenges in both short- and long-term.
  • Have gained an understanding of the concepts and methods of designing an AxS network.
  • Have gained an understanding of methods and tools of evaluating the performance of an AxS network.


  • Be able to design an AxS system or network based on a certain demand characteristics in a context e.g. manufacturing, production and logistics.
  • Be able to evaluate the performance of an AxS system or network in a dynamic application environment.
  • Be able to assess both technological and economic feasibility of an AxS system or network in a specific application/commercial context.


  • Have gained awareness and a holistic understanding on the impacts of AxS in an running business or industrial context.
  • Have gained the insights and tools of employing AxS systems or networks in a specific facility.
  • Be able to conduct a comprehensive performance/risk analysis in a quantitative manner, by identifying the stochastic characteristics of application .context/environment, based on which should be able to judge the applicability of any AxS systems or networks.
