The automotive supplier Bosch, together with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IKH) Stuttgart and other partners from science and industry, developed the Industry 4.0 (IHK) training course and has already tested it in a pilot project. The course is aimed at skilled workers with professional experience in production or logistics and is completed with a certificate. Subdivided into five modules, it conveys an understanding of current technologies and data transmission options as well as how logistics and supply chains function in the digital world. It focuses on technical content and working methods such as Scrum . According to Bosch and the project partners, this is the first course that directly targets skilled workers and qualifies them for the requirements of networked production.
The first twelve participants from the Bosch plant in Stuttgart-Feuerbach have already successfully completed the course. The IHK plans to offer the courses throughout Germany for all companies starting 2019.
