Enabling sustainable value creation by engineering capacity building
Dr. Sadiq Ahmad Muhammad Abd Elall was born in Khan younis, Palestine. From 2010 to 2014 he worked as a research engineer at the Institute of Machine tools and Factory Management, at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. Profit and growth are the major targets of industries. Industrial value creation can be measured by the level of achieving these targets. The balanced scorecard focuses on the factors that affect the industrial value creation. At the same time, industry activities have several interactions with society and the environment that significantly shape global sustainability. In this view, a so-called sustainable value creation model has been developed which integrates factors influencing industrial value creation and sustainability. In the perspective of this dissertation, human resource and especially engineers are considered as key enablers of the sustainable value creation. The development of engineering curricula that is based on the sustainable value creation model will alter the attitude of engineering students to balance the economic profit with the environmental and social benefits in their engineering solutions.
