Changes in the concept of work are based on increased groupwork, use of distributed autonomous production centers and complexity of mechatronic (electrical, mechanical, and informatical) products and manufacturing methods.
These require new technical and social-communicative qualifications for skilled workers and engineers. Mechatronical subjects and telesupported co-operation methods will play a key role in future industrial development.
Tele-services will achieve considerable significance regarding distributed, non-stationary work connected via computer networks. Therefore the aim of this pilot project is to develop, test and evaluate concepts for the deployment of remote action in distributed learning environments. The concept is to be exemplified by learning tasks in the field of tele- service in mechatronics.
