PETALING JAYA, Selangor, Aug 12 (Bernama) --
Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC), through the Electrical & Electronics Productivity Nexus (EEPN), is embarking on the MyReskill IoT Programme to assist the industry in productivity improvements through digitalisation. This programme is significant to the current needs as digitalisation is no longer an option, but a must-have tool for businesses to survive the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, this programme aims to train and reskill the existing workforce so they will remain relevant to the industry.
Dato’ Abdul Latif Hj. Abu Seman, the Director General of MPC, voiced previously that “The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to touch every aspect of the value chain and, in doing so, improve productivity in each of those areas. Businesses can utilise the huge amounts of data collected from IoT devices in an incredible number of ways, and this attribute makes the IoT so beneficial for industries. The improvements made will hopefully contribute to improve Malaysia’s performance in the ‘use of digital tools and technologies’ indicator measured in the World Competitiveness ranking”.
It is envisioned that this programme will facilitate participants in gaining more exposure and insights about the basic introduction to IoT. They will be trained in advanced technical knowledge involving system setup, dashboard configuration and system interrogation. In addition, they will experience a signature element of this programme which is the Proof-of-Concept (POCs) project development mechanism, where participants will gain hands-on opportunity to apply the technical knowledge learned to their own projects.
As the adoption of Industry 4.0 is deemed crucial for business survival and innovation-led value creation, businesses should step up to embrace the opportunity. Dato' Seri Wong Siew Hai, Champion of EEPN, said “MyReskill IoT programme is a continuation of our previous EEPN’s End-user Plugfest programme which has successfully helped SMEs to plan their path in their digitalisation journey. The compilation of Proof-of-Concept projects, benefitting more than 30 companies, has demonstrated in bringing Industry 4.0 to reality. We hope this effort will break this perception from businesses that digital transformation is costly, cumbersome, and something only big firms can afford. With that, businesses will be more receptive and ready to adopt digitalisation.”
The MyReskill IOT programme will begin this upcoming September and MPC anticipates more than 5,000 participants to join. Upon completing the registration and readiness assessment, they will undergo five half-days online sessions before proceeding to develop their proof-of-concept project for another two weeks.
