Identifying the Project’s Challenge
Despite significant industrial growth in recent years, industrial and educational standards vary among Spanish-speaking countries in the Americas. Large markets and industries, such as the automotive sector in Argentina, Colombia, and Ecuador, have attracted international interest, along with smaller markets in South American countries that are catching up industrially. However, there is a shortage of skilled workers, and the transfer of international working and production principles to Latin American production is challenging due to the developing dual education principle in these countries. Moreover, university courses in these countries differ from those in Germany, making further training necessary for skilled employees to work in international factories.
PEM Motion’s Approach
PEM operates in various business fields, including consulting, research and development, and training, which are closely linked. The company takes a holistic approach that encompasses not only the products themselves but also the entire production process, from factory planning and assembly to logistics planning and production ramp-up. PEM shares its knowledge in various disciplines with its international customers, and as global demand for electro-mobility continues to grow, there is an increasing interest in further training opportunities in this field.
As part of the overall Y-Mas project, PEM will provide additional education through trainings in ramp-up management and intra-logistics.
What Has Been Achieved So Far?
So far, the company has conceptualized the teaching methodology, determined the course duration and delivery format, collected relevant teaching content for the ramp-up management module, and developed a partner network and potential customers in Mexico during an on-site conference.
