Competencies for Future Production

This chapter lays the foundations for important terms in the field of learning such as competences, qualifications, and knowledge as well as learning objectives and learning outcomes. Within the framework of the literature research, it is analyzed and explained which professional and overarching competencies are addressed in learning factories. A hot topic here is the identification of the necessary competencies in the context of Industrie 4.0. There are already various studies regarding necessary competencies for Industrie 4.0 that mostly identify vague meta-competencies. The challenge here is that these meta-competencies cannot serve as a basis for the development of learning factory training due to their vagueness and lack of context. As an example, it is shown how competencies can be defined for a subarea of Industrie 4.0 (the combination of Industrie 4.0 and Lean Production) that supports the learning factory developer in the goal-oriented development of learning factory offers.
