Course Number: SC03
Integrating Advanced Imaging and Digitization into Your Institution

Date: Monday 18 May, 2020
Time: 8:00 - 12:15 (4 hours)
Track: Integration, Workflow, and Quality Control
Level: Introductory
Instructor: Michael B. Toth

Benefits: This course enables the attendee to:

  • Understand best practices that are appropriate for advance imaging and digitization program planning, management, and implementation.
  • Use best practices for managing the large amounts of data created by advanced imaging technologies.
  • Learn guidance and techniques for managing projects and tracking implementation, including developing:
    • A solid program management plan.
    • An effective structure for task development.
    • An effective program master schedule.
    • Requirements and resources tracking and reporting.

Course Description
This course provides:

  • Modules in digitization, planning, and management reflecting stages of advanced imaging projects.
  • Case studies examining imaging technology applications and challenges.
  • High-return, low-effort best practices to implement projects immediately.

The core topics of the course are:

  • Tailoring Digitization and Data Management for Archiving.Identify how, why, and when different imaging technologies are most efficiently applied.How to implement best practices and technologies most appropriate to staffing, resources, and program complexity: One size does not fit all.
  • The Basics of Program and Data Management.Basic concepts and planning methods for management and process improvement to implement digitization with effective program and data management.
  • Full Life Cycle Implementation.Addressing challenges in advanced imaging program and data planning, development, and management with case studies.

Participants will develop increased understanding that can help them tap multidisciplinary support from the scientific, engineering, and information technology communities. The course introduces best practices for integrating advanced imaging and digitization into standardized institutional and project workflows. It focuses on methodologies for implementing and managing advanced imaging and digitization, integrating new technologies and data, and supporting advanced digital products. This includes collecting, processing, accessing, archiving, and collaborating with digital data from various imaging technologies.

Intended Audience: This course supports participants from institutions, academia, and corporate practice as they implement and manage successive stages of advanced imaging and digitization projects from initiation through production and operation, especially with changing technologies, data standards, and tighter budget environments. Archiving personnel will benefit from the basic concepts and best practices of advanced digitization and data management. This short course is equally applicable to all project team members.
