- 321 Downloads
Vocational Education and Training (VET) represents a key factor for the development of countries and society. Due to radical changes and new challenges in technology and in societal needs, VET has to re-think its position in the education field as well for better fitting within the new job requirements. The chapter will focus on the relations between VET and Maintenance 4.0 environments analysing opportunities with particular attention to works in transportation systems. First, the work will discuss the actual context in comparison with the past decades focusing on the European situation. Second, the main points of VET and Transportation Maintenance 4.0 will be pinpointed. After that, a reflection on how those concepts can be combined in transportation systems will be offered. Finally, discussion and conclusion will reflect on how to move forwards for taking advantages of VET on a long-term horizon.
