Researchers at the department de Organización Industrial of Tecnun have developed an report study that determines the impact of Industry 4.0 on the operational management and the human factor in industrial companies. The study -a pioneer in Spain- identifies the leadership style and competencies, both technical and personal, that workers in an organization will have to acquire as a result of the new industrial paradigm. 

The research, which has been prepared by 3 professors from Tecnun and a student of the master's degree in Industrial Engineering, has been carried out with the participation of 22 leading companies in Gipuzkoa in the use of 4.0 technologies, such as big data, 3D printing or autonomous robots. To this end, in-depth interviews were conducted with plant engineers, human resources managers, directors of area and general managers.

Álvaro Lleó, professor at Personnel Management Service of Tecnun, explains that one of the objectives of this research is to identify the professional, technical and personal skills that engineers 4.0 should have in order to analyze "how to improve the training of students".

The conclusions of the study highlight that Industry 4.0 will affect all jobs in a manufacturing company, that both the role of supervisor and operator will change and that it is necessary for the university to accompany the company on this path.
