International expanding markets and continuous development of new customer oriented products lead to an increasing product and process variety and complexity as well as shortened product lifecycles. According to these challenges, manufacturing companies have to enhance their process flexibility to remain sustainable competitive. Due to that, employees have to deal with high flexible work processes including continuous change of constellations and objectives. These in turn require a high employee’s flexibility, adaptability and occupational competence as well as new training concepts to enable them. In the academic literature and industrial practice, exists a variety of concepts for employee’s qualification and training. However, these concepts do only partially focus the employee’s occupational competence. Therefore, an innovative learning concept based on motor learning theories was developed and empirically validated. The description of the examination design as well as the result presentation and discussion are subject of the present contribution.
