Skills Intelligence in the Steel Sector
by Dr. Michael Kohlgrüber, Mathias Cuypers and Adrian Götting
Abstract: To implement Intelligent Production Systems, two innovation approaches are to be combined: on the one hand, technological innovations produce intelligent solutions which harvest the potential of digital technologies and huge volumes of available data. On the other hand, social innovation processes are needed which introduce the skills perspective into innovative production systems. Skills Intelligence is a helpful concept that provides a good information base for informed decisions on skill needs and skill development. The article shows that this target can be achieved best through innovative tools which are developed based on an effective integration of different stakeholders and perspectives.
