Industrial corporations in the Lake Constance region have close ties to partner companies globally. This is why they are increasingly having to deal with international standards and guidelines when specifying and verifying components – a challenge for businesses and education providers. Existing principles, procedures, and interpretations for the design, manufacture, and measurement of components are partly outdated, and training has its shortcomings. How can modern, motivating, lifelong learning be made possible for geometric product specification and verification from apprenticeships and university education to training for employees? The project creates a training concept for this – a mix of conventional learning methods, self-directed “on-demand” forms of learning, and practical knowledge-building. The concept also uses new technologies such as an online learning platform for knowledge acquisition via mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. The goal is to equip skilled workers in the Lake Constance region and ultimately to increase the competitiveness of its local industry in comparison with other regions.
