We are bringing in new automated technology to an environment which has previously been a manual process. We need to assess the skills of our current workforce against the new technology.
Skills will include things such as machine set up and ongoing problem solving if equipment stops/breaks down, changeovers of parts/material, monitoring etc.
Has anyone any experience of having introduced new technology in the past into areas where technology has never been used and successfully assessing skills and the workforce against these requirements prior to bringing in the technology.
I am interested in any advice on items such as mechanical aptitude tests and any other tests that may be useful. Alternatively, if these have been found to be unhelpful.
