New State-Of-The-Art Facility being built within UPM Campus
Our new Centre of Excellence will be focused on SMEs and startups who are increasingly at the heart of I4.0. Corporations require coaching towards an Agile mindset focused on Value through Solutions. The CoE will use the PTC lab-based training to promote the upskilling of workforces and the building of core capabilities to better compete in international markets.
The CoE promotes a learn-it-all mindset required to operate a data driven business. The CoE directly addresses the absence of digital and advanced manufacturing skills that is stalling innovation and change. Artificial Intelligence and other digital capabilities will not provide the step change corporates seek until they address the growing skills gap. AI, Robotics, RPA and other emerging tech are not magic but build on the foundational people, data and process capabilities that SMEs, Startups and Corporates invest in.
The CoE is driving a venturing investment model that harnesses the potential of entrepreneurs without embracing the high rate of failure. The CoE coaches digital disruption as one part digital and one part discipline. Innovation needs to be balanced carefully between exploit and explore. The CoE will harness both the disruptive power of startups and the discipline of multinationals to deploy winning strategies.
