Needs and demands for FoF design - a competency profile


Transformation towards the FoF needs a change not only within digital technology skills and knowledge but also needs a strong orientation on innovations as well. The level of competence in the analysed group of companies is not satisfactory in this field.


The companies that participated in the survey in the scope of DigiFoF project are diverse in terms of their current digital designing abilities. However, the results of the research confirm the significant role of possessing and building digital designing knowledge and skills among present and potential employees of manufacturing companies.

The purpose of this report is to highlight findings from the diagnosis of needs and demands for Factory of the Future (FoF) design. This document considers the most appropriate needs and requirements of enterprises - potential stakeholders of the FoF, and thus propose an adequate training program in the field of digital designing. The report is based on results from questionnaire survey (Task 1.1) which is an integral part of Work Package WP1. It aims at creating a knowledge basis to understand main interest topic and knowledge gaps. The achieved results will be matched with the consortium`s competencies and skills in order to develop academic  and  continuous professional trainings. Moreover, the questionnaire survey allows the consortium to identify the most relevant needs of companies and map them to the skills and knowledge available in the DigiFoF project stakeholders.
