The 2022 general meeting of the Tochigi Prefectural High School Education Study Group Industrial Subcommittee, which is made up of faculty members of industrial high schools and high schools that have industrial departments in Tochigi Prefecture, was held on May 12 at Tochigi Prefectural Utsunomiya Technical High School in Utsunomiya City. Our representative Hideki Iino gave a lecture entitled “About Japanese Manufacturing DX”.
At a lecture held after the general meeting, Mr. Iino said that in the present age when economic uncertainty is increasing, including the Korona-ka, the Japanese manufacturing industry has been renewing old equipment introduced in the 1980s. , Pointed out that it has not been able to introduce a new mechanism compared to China and other countries. He said there is a growing need for digital transformation (DX) to enhance corporate transformation. We introduced the factories of group companies opened last year in Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture as an example, saying that the fusion of simulation by digital technology and real production sites is indispensable for the overall optimization of the production process for that purpose.
After the lecture, the venue asked questions such as “What are the abilities required of industrial high school students in the future?” And answered, “Anyway, communication skills are necessary. It is important to have the ability to grasp what customers want.”
