Task Description
The subject area for the development of the Regional Technological Platform (RTF) is Software Technologies and Knowledge Software (STKS). Specifically, STKS can contribute to the increase of the competitiveness of enterprises in the area of software development for resource management (including physical resources, human resources etc.), infrastructure management, process optimization (e.g. industrial design), commercial applications (using technologies that record consumers habits and interests in order to propose specific products), emergency situation management (e.g. evacuation of industries in fire accidents), as well as specific needs in the medical field.
STKS are useful tools that aim at the improvement of product or service competitiveness. This is achieved by helping in efficient use of existing infrastructure and resources and thus reducing the production cost. Furthermore, optimization in the design of products improves their quality and thus their competitiveness. These facts contribute to a well-based development of the companies, which can lead to increased demand for their products and thus to further needs in personnel. The STKS RTF has an important role in the aim to upgrade the quality of services and products and thus helps to improve the overall quality of life. Furthermore, the STKS contributes in the resource management of the area and thus helps to improve the competitiveness and healthy growing of companies in the Region of Central Macedonia.
