EPCI, Lanškroun, Czech Republic, 24th November
I add together a header note with some history pictures to the Museum Institute pages based on my story today. It will take some time to build the Museum pages, but at least … it is on the wish list ….
I was driving today to a meeting with one local company, lead by 72 years passive components veteran man that spent all his life on passive component manufacturing and services. I was captured in a moment by a thought that I am the generation that has to fulfill a mission to bridge this generation with new digital age. They are the generation of the industry pioneers, not the early pioneers of basic inventions, but the hands-on engineers that had moved the garage production to mass volume … and based on my manufacturing experience It is the real hard job ! … yield, ppm failures, quality standards, high speed contacting …etc. Knowledge is not transferable, you learn mostly what you do … and that was the generation that did it … our generation was partially hit, but now sitting and swiming in information flood behind computer is not the way to get the “true experience”, I am afraid. I wish we capture the knowledge somehow, use and conserve it for a moment and let it grow ….. that is why – here is the Institute project with its Museum pages.
I add the note to the Museum main page where you can see the pictures from “later pioneers” in gallery that I took back from this trip .
