THE Machinery and Equipment Productivity Nexus (MEPN), urged the industries to make full use of the Industrial Skills Framework (IndSF) for machinery and equipment (M&E) subsector, which features initiatives for the upskilling and reskilling programmes to revitalise businesses and empower employees of the industry.
According to Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) that fully supports the MEPN’s IndSF said that the framework will be a critical roadmap for the systematic development of the entire M&E industry value chain as it enables industry players to identify the gaps within the industry and develop relevant training programmes to close those gaps.
“For employees, this will serve as a blueprint for their career development, enabling them to prepare themselves to achieve their full potential in the sector,” he opined.
Meanwhile, MEPN’s Mac Ngan Boon said that MEPN holds the mandate to connect the M&E industry to authorities and relevant stakeholders in managing business barriers and addressing industry’s issues and challenges.
The IndSF is a collaborated initiative among MEPN, Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) and Machinery and Engineering Industries Federation (MEIF), aligned to Industry 4.0 and catering for the future development of the M&E industry. – Feb 18, 2021
