Engineering Transformed with Digital Transformation
Izmir Energy Summit, which brings together the important companies operating in the energy sector, took place at Ege University Prof. Dr. Yusuf Vardar MÖTBE Cultural Center. Within the scope of the summit organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), various conferences and panels, as well as trainings organized by academicians who are experts in the field were given. The IAS team, which sponsored the event, also met with students at the summit. Gazi Çelebi, General Manager of Solimpeks Turkey, who attended the Izmir Energy Summit as a panellist, said that the panel titled 'Energy Technologies of the Future' panel shared with students the importance of adapting to renewable energy systems, digital transformation processes and adapting business in order to gain an advantage in the processes. He gave information about the way it should be followed in order to obtain advantages in changing business processes.
It Will Lose Non Digitized
Çelebi, who gave advice to students about the renewable energy sector and digitalization, said: “Engineering is changing, ways of doing business are changing, we are digitalizing. Digitalization, both as a substructure and mentally, is very important for students who plan to embark on a business life. Labor and time previously spent at the desk can now be carried out much faster in digital media. For this reason, companies and engineers need to change the classic perspective and students should prepare themselves by following new digital theories. If I need to give an example from my own company; Our friend working at the call center can calculate how much energy a roof will produce according to the size of a roof and how much profit it will provide to our customer, and present that data, in as little as 10 minutes.. This same task used to take us several hours to compile. Our new engineers will not be able to work more efficiently. As a result, my advice to them is to focus their studies in areas such as marketing, financing and software development while preparing to enter the sector. ”
caniasERP Our Most Important Assistant
Referring to the digital transformation process experienced by his company with caniasERP, Çelebi said, "It is very important for companies to be able to follow all their processes in detail. In order to set new goals, we must be able to accurately measure what is available. Reporting the results of our past work with accurate data plays a guiding role in making future plans. We used to do this work in manual environments with offline applications. In our digital transformation process initiated with caniasERP, we are now performing such operations through our ERP system. We can accurately analyze the past. We can define our goals and perform the right simulation. For example, we can track sales processes from beginning to end, from first contact to sales shutdown. This simulation includes the production process as we can do operations such as production planning, spare parts, manufacturing and inventory tracking through the system. caniasERP has become our conduit into both sales, production management."
