Industry 4.0, the new deal of skills for the relaunch of Italy

Do intelligent manufacturing it needs skills that are largely lacking in the Italian job market. For this reason, it is urgently needed to launch one New Deal in the field of education that allows to restore centralityscientific technical training with programs that, on the one hand, promote the continuous training of workers within companies, on the other Investing in digital skills for the rebirth of Italian lunch.

These are some of the results achieved by the study “Skills and Competences for Intelligent Manufacturing”, conducted by The European House – Ambrosettiin collaboration with Philip Morris Italy, noting how the Italian manufacturing system has the potential to play a leading role through its international positioning. Italy is actually the fifth country in the world to produce surplus and can compete with three of the top five European provinces that are super specialized in manufacturing.

“This study represents an important starting point for developing the training offerings of our Manufacturing Competence Institute, focusing on three fundamental areas for Industry 4.0: Training, technology transfer and open innovation and applied research – he claimed Marco HannappelPresident and Managing Director of Philip Morris Italy – For me and the more than 30,000 people in Philip Morris’ Italian supply chain, it’s a pride for a project to develop and identify skills for the manufacturing of the future bäizedroen. “.

According to the data contained in the study, the issue of internal and external skills represents the main problem for the companies surveyed: 20% said they had difficulty finding suitable professional figures, 13% complained about a lack of Skills in the workforce. More critical topics are in the areas of data science (27%), advanced computer skills (18%), programming (16%) e Project management (13%).

With reference to traditional training channels, companies express very strong dissatisfaction with the skills of high school graduates (88%) and graduates (54%), which poses a problem of the mismatch between the skills required and those of the school and university system is offered.

In addition to the qualitative issue, the study also reveals important shortcomings in the quantitative aspect: only one young Italian from six studies Tribal disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) andpost-secondary technical education needs an adjustment in relation to the leaders in Europe; less than one in two workers attend training courses and almost half of the problems encountered by companies relate to management’s ability to manage changes that can be triggered by technology.

“Italy is a global manufacturing power in the Surplus of 111 billion euros generated by our industries is a cornerstone of our economic system – he explains Valerio de MolliManaging Partner and CEO of The European House – Ambrosetti – Research clearly highlights the fragility of the training system to support opportunitiesIntelligent manufacturing and proposes clear and incisive action proposals for the development of skills to make a development engine for the land system.

The study also presents five proposals to maximize the capabilities of intelligent manufacturing: launches a new deal of 4.0 capabilities, as in Italy only 42% of adults have basic digital capabilities; to restore the centrality of technical-scientific education, in order to facilitate legal recognition between ITS and universities in order to combat early school exchange; changing equipment on continuous training, designing new structures and new forms of incentive for the workers of tomorrow; Set quantitative targets on digital and 4.0 training, create systems for measurement and monitoring performance; invest in digital skills for the rebirth of southern Italy, one of the least prepared areas in Europe to face the revolution of intelligent manufacturing and the challenge of digital transformation.
