The Rapid Evolution of the Manufacturing Industry
June 24th, 2013 by David Heller
This new IMTSTV In Brief features Steve Frizinger, NetApp’s Virtualization Alliance Manager, Java Author and Economics Writer, about the current state of the manufacturing industry. Steve explains how competition and technology are driving the industry’s pace, and why companies must adapt to this change if they want to survive. He also cites MTConnect as one of the leading factors for the pace change, and how it has allowed the entire industry to achieve and maintain a greater level of efficiency.
Steve also speaks about the future of manufacturing jobs in America. He offers a solution to student debts and 4-year degrees that provide few benefits. Steve explains how trade schools expose students to new and exciting opportunities never before seen in manufacturing. With these trade schools, students will be able to begin their manufacturing careers earlier and without having to repay thousands of dollars in student loans.
As the industry continues to evolve, Steve predicts that thriving in manufacturing, for both companies and workers, will be based primarily on intellect and innovation.
