PROJECT LEAD: Smart Automation Certification Alliance (SACA)

PARTNERS: Amatrol

PROBLEM STATEMENT: Incumbent workers and small-medium size businesses do not have a convenient method to acquire high quality Smart Manufacturing skills related to their needs due to lack of comprehensive curriculum, credentials, and modularized short-term courses.

PROJECT GOAL: This project will create micro-credentials and modularized hands-on curriculum for smart manufacturing energy efficiency skills and small-medium business needs, which builds on an existing foundation of smart manufacturing SACA micro-credentials and curriculum.

TECHNICAL APPROACH:

The method of solving this problem :

  • Develop new SACA standards for short-term credential standards in partnership with industry using an ISO credential development process
  • Develop new SACA online/ hands-on credential assessments using industry experts/advisors
  • Develop curriculum aligned with new credentials using standardized development process
  • Develop hands-on procedures to align with IIoT kit being developed under a separate RFP 

KEY TASKS AND MILESTONES:

  • Milestone 1: Form Technical Workgroup, identify standards, outline hands-on skills
  • Milestone 2: Finalize standards, Conduct Regional Workshops, Storyboard lessons/study guides
  • Milestone 3: Finalize assessments, begin piloting/analysis, and complete pre/post tests 

POTENTIAL IMPACT:

  • Makes training available to U.S. incumbent workers to increase numbers trained.
  • Makes training available to U.S. small-medium size businesses to expand training to a critical segment.
  • Creates credentials and standards that will encourage more curriculum development by many training organizations.
