Getting your Workforce ready for Industry 4.0 - Challenges & Opportunities
Based on our research under the Skills Shift Initiative, and some early insights from improving digital competency levels for manufacturing companies through in-house training, we now have a better understanding of the challenges New Zealand manufacturers face when they aspire to get their workforce ready for the age of digital manufacturing. But we can also point to some opportunities for those manufacturers to ‘get ahead of the game’ by tackling this training early and well, and some potential upsides of the current reform of vocational education (RoVE) in New Zealand.
