Research Project

MEMSA is hoping to engage a research service provider with a strong understanding of skills needs related to 4IR, to assist with a study to improve understanding of the skills requirements in the mining equipment manufacturing industry.

The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) continues to progress through the manufacturing and mining industries, presenting new challenges and opportunities. Skill sets which meet the demands of new, digitally enabled industries are essential to success in this context, and education and training providers need to respond by providing relevant courses and qualifications.

Early responders are already taking up the challenge – we hope this timely study will provide insights and guidance for further development.  MEMSA is pleased to request proposals from suitably qualified and experienced service providers for the role of Research Service Provider in the implementation of a study of 4IR related skills needs among South African mining equipment manufacturers. The study is funded and supported by the merSETA.
