Wyser, an international company of Gi Group that deals with research and selection of managerial profiles, indicates the most requested roles in the various company functions impacted by the manufacturing 4.0. “The transition to the industry 4.0 is leading, on the one hand, to a demand for plant engineering and automation figures that is superior to the available profiles, so much so that the companies often turn to different application areas, but more innovative on specific technologies, such as the vertical consulting firms – said Carlo Caporale, Wyser’s Managing Director Italy -. On the other hand, there is an unprecedented convergence and integration among the company functions, also to meet the challenge of the product customization; it’s here roles such as the Innovation Manager or highly specialized figures, external to the company, can support to develop skills by redesigning the processes in a transversal perspective, from Supply Chain to Marketing, Operations and Product Development. Is is an effort that in the Country system is more pronounced today in the areas with the strongest manufacturing tradition, but which can represent an important development driver for Italy and the more recent districts that are emerging”.
