    Mark Gardiner博士:7003全讯白菜主页选择KTP作为在业务中嵌入新知识的机制,因为7003全讯白菜主页认识到工业4.0 is going to be vital to the company going forward, but it was an area of which we had very little knowledge. 

    We could recruit in that capability or use a consultancy, but we quickly realised when we tried to do that, 7003全讯白菜主页内部没有必要的知识来有效地做到这一点.

    George Parisis: For this particular KTP, 我非常幸运能够从零开始开发这个项目,这是7003全讯白菜主页去年与Sprint Electric合作的一个概念验证项目, 我很幸运地看到我自己的学生发展成为这个项目的知识转移伙伴关系助理.

    [On-screen name caption: Nick Toomey, KTP Associate]

    Nick Toomey: I’m developing an Industry 4.0准备好的软件套件来控制工业电机控制器,这样你就可以远程改变他们的设置,也可以从他们现场查看信息.

    My day-to-day role involves a lot of programming, so there’s a lot of... problem solving, a lot of creative thinking, a lot of developing code.

    And since a big part of the KTP is to produce a competent project manager, I can also use the training budget to help me with my soft skills.

    乔治:我确实通过这个项目和与企业合作获得了知识,然后我可以把这些知识带回去,并为我自己的研究提供信息, 但与此同时,我要把它带回课堂,传播给我的学生.

    凯特:如果你准备好和7003全讯白菜主页谈谈你的企业如何从7003全讯白菜的创新中受益的话, get in touch with the Innovation and Business Partnerships team.
