Description of the research:

This study discusses the challenges posed by an aging workforce in the engineering industry, leading to the loss of experienced workers and hindering knowledge transfer and innovation. It emphasizes the need for enhanced collaboration and communication strategies. While young entrants face obstacles in acquiring knowledge, the study focuses on the interactions between young and aging artisans, identifying factors influencing tacit knowledge transfer. The recommended approach involves a mixed research method, utilizing surveys and interviews. The study proposes a framework, Knowledge Window Effect Transfer (KWETRA), to guide future research and strategically align tacit knowledge with company goals.
