We at Machine Design try to make every day Manufacturing Day by highlighting the amazing innovations that companies—both big and small—create that make the manufacturing industry smarter, more efficient and safer.
Every month, we talk about the manufacturing industry with our PMI Index report. In this report, we discuss growth trends, implications and challenges for some larger sectors within manufacturing. These analyses come from real-time reports from companies working their way out of real-time issues—like supply chain gaps that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Looking back and analyzing the steps we’ve taken to improve manufacturing processes is something we do well.
But we also need to look to the future.
With a labor shortage running rampant, the need for skilled workers has reached the forefront of manufacturing needs.
The STEM Careers Coalition is honoring this holiday by inspiring students and educators to explore the realm of modern manufacturing. Together with Discovery Education, the Coalition is offering manufacturing career profiles, student activities and classroom activities sourced from organizations like Boeing, Sanofi, Stanley Black & Decker, Microsoft and the Caterpillar Foundation.
