When you fire up your laptop or switch on your car, you probably don’t think much about the manufacturing involved in these great inventions of modern life or the human skills required to produce them. Sure, automation and robotics and all manner of technology are employed; but it’s people with specialized capabilities that are the brains behind it. This is the domain of Skillnote, a popular app on SAP Store that helps manufacturers manage employee skills, qualifications, and certifications. Why is this such a big deal? In short, because precise skills and training management are necessary to meet customer requirements and international standards for quality assurance. That’s how manufacturers ensure that your indispensable devices work reliably as finely tuned machines.
