[[abstract]]Thin Film Transistor-Liquid Crystal Display（TFT-LCD）is one of highly developed High-tech industry in Taiwan. Unfortunately, there was little research related to the production management engineers’ competences. The study adopted the multi-case study method to construct the competence model for production management engineers in TFT-LCD industry. To collect the research data, several production management engineers of three leading LCD manufacturers were interviewed. Finally, developed and identified competence model was offered to HRD for the recruiting reference. The conclusions of study are as follows： 1. Production management competencies Production management competencies included （1）outcome and action management clusters,（2）team leadership and cooperation clusters,（3）professional knowledge and techniques clusters, （4）interpersonal communication and services clusters（5）self-effect clusters,（6）self- conscious clusters,（7）training and conducting clusters. Based on Spencer’s core and surface competence model, the competencies were identified as the followings: 1-1 core competences The core competences in the study included outcome and action management clusters, interpersonal communication and services clusters, self-effect clusters, self- conscious clusters, etc. The type of competences at the base of personality is more difficulty to assess and develop. It is effective to use some interview skills and aptitude tests to select for these characteristics. 1-2 surface competences The surface competences in the study included team leadership and cooperation clusters, professional knowledge and techniques clusters, training and conducting clusters. The professional knowledge and managerial skills are at the surface of personality. It is easy to change through training & development, and managerial development. When identifying the competence model, one can follow the character of competences and use it for recruitment, salary management and performance appraisal. For the purpose of increasing performance, it is necessary to use right human resource strategy to enhance the competence effects.
