Technologists

Our technologists have the ability to help guide your business to ensure that the right decisions are made during a project.

How a technologist can help you:

The challenge that the general engineering companies are facing is that clients are demanding more industry specific expertise. Hence the third talent was identified, a strong interest in a specific area of business, e.g. Critical trading systems, Hybrid control systems. This has forced engineering companies into specialisation, which has led to their consultants actually being expert in the client’s business, more so than being a Engineering, Programming or Database expert. Increasingly specific technological competence is becoming secondary. Brightness and experience taking care of that, along with the general ‘dumbing down’ of development tools. Such people can actually advise the business on the pros and cons of building a system. It is not uncommon to hear them talk about ROI (return on investment) and CPT (cost savings per transaction).

Organisations have always had the need for Technologists, but many continue to look for an interest in technology talent alone; much to their disappointment. Most people agree that the day of the industrial geek is coming to an end. In the medium term, companies that wake up to the fact that the ‘triple talented’ Technologist is only the way forward, will be at a distinct competitive advantage. The technologist approaches the solution of problems in applied science and engineering technology with a comprehensive understanding of a specific field of technology. The technologist evaluates assignments, establishes objectives, defines problems, and decides upon procedures and actions for their accomplishment or resolution.

The technologist may be called upon to undertake a variety of duties, including:

Design equipment, processes or systems; Interpret and prepare specifications, technical drawings or instructions;
Prepare estimates and manage projects;
Specify tests, conduct non-routine tests, develop prototypes, operate (larger) pilot plants, troubleshoot complex equipment, resolve production or construction difficulties, compile experimental data and prepare reports;
Supervise, train, coordinate, and assume administrative responsibility for the work of others;
Participate in short and long range planning;
Carry out studies, make calculations, prepare or develop programs, provide instructions and implement projects.
