A focus group was facilitated initially by the project team with the participation of two maintenance operators, Senior Training Specialist of the company and project trainer. In this way, feedbacks from the participants are gained and it served as an informing session.
The theoretical part of the application lasted 1.5 hours. It was composed of three parts;
- A1: Occupational Health and Safety, Environment and Quality
- B1: Preventive Maintenance
- B2: Corrective Maintenance
The behaviors, competencies and qualifications of the participants were observed in terms of these three topics, A1, B1 and B2. Theoretical part was then followed by an on-the-job pilot application with the help of a prototype machine and equipment designed for SMART – COMET. Participants applied what they apply on the field using the prototype machine. The trainer was taking notes of all the qualifications and behaviors of them during the application. This part lasted 3 hours in total.
Manuals and handbooks created by the project team for these applications were used during both theoretical and practical part. Feedbacks and comments are gained from two participants at the end.
In addition to this standard process applied in two different companies prior to this application, another point was raised in TürkTraktör enterprise and discussed between the participants. The pilot machine designed and developed as a part of this project will be re-designed after pilot applications and focus group feedbacks and will be drawn and disseminated in Autocad program. These drawings will be put in the report which will then be shared with enterprises. This comprehensive competence and development report including observations of the trainer will be shared with the project partners. The report will be an open resource not only for the metal sector, but also for the other sectors being a model applicable for all others.
This report will also be disseminated to a focus group that will be composing of metal sector professionals.
