The Laboratory as an Organizational Cell--The Case of Automation and Systems Laboratory of PUC-PR.
Gouvea da Costa, Sergio Eduardo; Busetti de Paula, Marco Antonio; Pinheiro de Lima, Edson
The universities and institutions that deal with undergraduate education generally have a traditional organizational structure: their human resources are allocated to departments which are structured on subjects, and the persons are grouped according to their specialization profile. As a result of this, it has been observed that many groups are disconnected from the university purposes in education, research, and services due to their high level of specialization. This paper shows a model adopted by the Automation and Systems Laboratory--LAS--of the Catholic Pontifical University of Parana, PUC/PR, based in an organizational cell called Laboratory, which comprises rooms and equipment for its administration, teaching and research activities and services facilities, and assigned faculties and technicians. The Laboratory has its goals and people with different qualifications and skills work to match them. Research goals are the main link in Laboratory activities. Another aspect is the knowledge transfer to the education and service projects like continuous training, undergraduate, and graduate programs offered by the Laboratory and the university. It is shown how this type of organizational cell works, integrated with the community and the university, assuring the perfect implementation of basic university purposes. (SAH)
