An Application of Fuzzy Theory to Technical Competency Analysis for the Entry-Level Electronic Technician.
Chang, Liang-Te; And Others
A study was conducted to develop the electronic technical competencies of duty and task analysis by using a revised DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) method, a questionnaire survey, and a fuzzy synthesis operation. The revised DACUM process relied on inviting electronics trade professionals to analyze electronic technology for entry-level electronics technicians. The questionnaire survey focused on electronics factories and companies, and opinions of various occupants were obtained from managers, engineers, and technicians. Then, fuzzy synthesis operation of "importance rank" and "future need" was used to analyze items of the duty and task technical competencies. Finally, those entry-level technical competencies for electronics technicians graduates from institutes of technology were analyzed and proposed. The study provides an important source of reference for implementing new curricula in electronics departments in institutes of technology and narrows the gap between theory and practice for electronics technical education.
