fhnw.leadThe Industry 4.0 and the increasing digitalisation bring fundamental changes to the logistics sector by increasingly automating material flows and integrating information flows. As a result, the literature suggests that the market demands new competencies from logisticians working in warehouses.
fhnw.initialPositionThe Centre of Vocational and Higher Education, Logistics and Technologies in Dietikon, called ‘Bildungszentrum Limmattal, Logistik und Technologie’ (BZLT), decided to belong to the early adopters of the Industry 4.0 by creating a new course of study on level of Higher Education College, named ‘Höhere Fachschule’ (HF), that prepares logisticians for the interface of automation technology. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is (1) to evaluate if there is the need in the market for such a course of study, (2) to identify which competencies are demanded of a logistician occupied at the interface, and (3) to assess which modules teach the discovered competencies.
fhnw.procedureIn order to achieve the aforementioned research objectives, a market research was conducted by means of semi-structured interviews. Semi-structured interviews are proven to be a suitable technique to gather qualitative data of an interviewee’s thoughts and feelings. Thirteen experts of the Swiss logistics industry were asked concerning their demand for the course of study and the competencies they personally would require from logisticians working at the interface in question.
fhnw.resultsThe research revealed that a demand for the course of study exists within the target market, mostly from middle-to large-sized enterprises with mediocre advanced logistics solutions that experience problems at the interfaces between logistics and automation technology. Furthermore, by means of the market survey, a competency model was created that includes the relevant professional, methodical, leadership, social and self-competencies that are suggested to be transferred to students in the course of study. Moreover, a specific module catalogue was proposed that teaches logisticians at the interface to automation technology. The suggested course of study focuses equally on professional and interdisciplinary competencies. Furthermore, it is recommended to teach a part of the course in English. Also, it is required to integrate a group project that imparts the practical application of the theory by means of a reallife project. Additionally, all module contents need to be developed and adjusted according to the principles of the Industry 4.0.
