With the need for more and more highly technical people at the basic level s of install , I see a great problem emerging as the need for IT Basics is crucial to the install.
More and more systems are being installed as labor only with remote management from IT based Management Teams
This is creating a Dumber , less educated labor force.
as a integrator i see the need for a deeper level of understanding at the install level.
Not just pull wire, install devices, connect to Inet
Troubleshoot to see where, why, how Proper installation, location, application standards are being met.
Which all goes back to better training at the apprentice level
I see too many times where the installation force has no idea how or why things work
They just install where told to.
computer based systems require a knowledge of operating systems and software basics, good feel for the computer software
example : Why you have usb conflicts on plug in of device
where to go to start , stop a application
what is requirement to change, add a hard drive
how to load or unload a application because of conflicts
why use or disable the inet services on upnp, notifications,
or other not needed features enabled in the startup process
lots of wasted time in the industry in the integration process
employees dumbfounded by what to do next , idle time because of lack of knowledge and wasted trips do to lack of preparation
