Technical specific learning
Schaeffler owns the rights to nearly 20,000 patents and patent applications. Approximately 2,100 inventions are registered for patents every year. These achievements are based on consistent scientific research. Hence technology and product innovation are of prime significance to us.
CoCo (Center of Competence) says “In Schaeffler we don't learn in a day, we learn daily!”
The CoCo initiative targets both engineering support and related technical training. This encompasses application engineering, project work, failure analysis and support of sales force and application engineering.
CoCo invites internal faculty to deliver branch specific training modules. This typically covers daily work on actual cases with application engineering, a review of interesting cases in regular technical meeting and experience sharing. The subject matter expert would ensure transfer of Ccompetence and knowledge transfer through 11 weeks of rigorous class room and simulation training; where each day concludes by an evaluation paper for each student.
CoCo coverts an Engineer into a "Technical Commando" – ready to face new markets, confront new technical challenges and with the ability to take customer raised questions and issues head-on.
