The only way to meet customer demand for speed, accuracy, and quality is to digitally transform. As our industry leverages new technologies that enable better processes, talent must evolve with it. No industry can afford to stand still, and manufacturing is no different.
The shortage of skilled labor is a major hurdle for companies aiming to enhance their automation processes through superior design and execution. The resulting delays and errors can incur unnecessary costs and loss of flexibility.
Purdue Polytechnic to dedicate nation's largest smart manufacturing ecosystem for engineering technology
This interdisciplinary program synergizes science, engineering, information systems and computing, focusing on manufacturing's next evolutionary step called Industry 4.0. The new facility ecosystem also has wide-ranging applications, opening up potential curriculum expansion.
Equipment manufacturers can (and should) embrace and adopt a number of short-term and long-term strategies to set themselves up for sustained success as it relates to workforce development.
Patti Engineering and Kettering University Collaborate on Industry 4.0-Enabled Collaborative Robotic Cell for Real-World Learning
Patti Engineering and Kettering University collaborate to create an Industry 4.0-enabled collaborative robotic cell for a new classroom lab to teach engineering and computer science students.
It should come as no surprise to learn that employee safety has made its way into the mobile app space, too. But how could introducing an app help your organization?
It's no secret that the engineering sector is experiencing a shortage of workers. In fact, research shows that the industry will need to train and employ around 200,000 people by 2024 to fill the gap.
Digitization, automation, and artificial intelligence in manufacturing have paved the way for new production methods. If employees are going to take on new responsibilities and operate connected devices, they need to be upskilled and trained accordingly.
By replicating authentic job scenarios in a safe and virtual setting, it's possible to both test and train welders effectively while simultaneously minimizing your long-term cost base.
Addressing lost productivity is particularly critical in today's climate. Despite technological advancements and economic growth, manufacturing productivity has declined since 2010, likely for the first period in American history.
Despite changes in working conditions, employers were still responsible for administering all types of training, from safety to job-specific onboarding and even general HR training. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many turned to online training for a solution.
Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) Starts Preparing Companies for the Future of Manufacturing
Michigan's manufacturing sector is crucial to its economy. It accounts for nearly 20% of the total output in the state, generating $102.35 billion and employing 631,000 people. Here's what MEDC is doing to ensure this critical part of the economy maintains growth.
The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide
The U.S. has been seeing declines in skilled labor during the past few years as experienced and knowledgeable employees continue to retire while fewer are choosing employment in factories or skilled trades.
As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
