The history of my own with the OS group and challenges for the future with the OS group.
Technology department manager
It’s been for 21 years working at this company in Tokyo office. I joined this company after the graduation of the University in Fukuoka, and I had hunger to work as a member of the technical team so I was assigned to Tokyo office.
As a manufacturer, I was in charge of The construction control at Technical dept., who made plannings for AV systems, programs by using a touch panel, and created various product drawings.
Currently I am a member of Technical promotion team, my duty is technically supporting our team with the knowledge accumulated over many years.
The history of my own with the OS group and challenges in the OS group.
In 2016, the experience I had in Singapore was the strongest memory.
Some Japanese affiliated company built a flagship store in Singapore, and we handled to place large-size electric batten hoists for lights and arts. I had experienced construction sites over 47 places in Japan, but this was the first time for me to work offshore, also my first challenge.
To begin with, choosing a local construction partner was the first step. After developing several steps, I eventually flew to Singapore for breaking ground. I faced a challenge in the way how to give a tutorial on the construction to the local members because I could NOT speak English. I broke through the difficulty by preparing and finishing documents more carefully, and talking with the local stuff using drawings and gestural communication. I ended up with the success communicating with the local stuff and completing the delivery and setting up. This opportunity brought me the new style of communication with deeds as well as words and more aggressively to challenge with businesses at various locations overseas. Recently I manage projects in China, Vietnam and Saudi Arabia.
My thoughts for the future ~ My future vision with the OS group ~
IoT devices will be increased rapidly in the future.
Our products should actively use the IoT technology for the prevention of system errors and to help customers easy to manage their supplies and so on. I aim to develop systems and products that see things through customers’ eyes.
OS group progresses toward the centennial. What would you believe the OS group be in 30 years?
The growing availability of digital technology and advanced technology change our way of living and working. It will be more common to communicate online and in virtual spaces and easier to communicate in several languages. Globalization will be more penetrated and make it seem more closer.
