PASSAGE is a EU funded project about industrial know-how.
PASSAGE project’s objective is to help industrial SMEs to identify which critical Know-How they should preserve (or acquire) to remain competitive and proposes to set up IT tools facilitating the identification, the preservation (capture) and/or acquisition of such critical know-how.
For this PASSAGE project will develop a “Capability Management Platform” providing Textile and clothing industrial associations with a set of validated products and services enabling their affiliated SMEs to efficiently manage the existing know-how and skills together with new competences taking the technological evolution into consideration.
The objective of the platform is to make knowledge-based web-services available to the SMEs, taking a holistic view on the whole supply chain, to diagnose, forecast and manage know-how and competence needs.
Such a platform will offer a method, tools and related guidelines dedicated to the diagnostic of future critical know-how shortages and the definition of preventive actions to face them based on an anticipative human resource management methodology including:
- An integrated methodology and related product-service for anticipating new/future know-how required to master technological evolutions.
- A method and related guidelines dedicated to the diagnostic of the critical know-how detained by SMEs in a given Region/Job/Work position/Competence and enabling the anticipation of possible competence shortages (illness, retirement…).
The preventive actions proposed will based on an anticipative human resource management methodology (GPEC ) likely to face such shortages (Figure 1):
