Tech-Clarity TV – Partnering to Develop the STEM Workforce of the Future

This episode of Tech-Clarity TV explores how manufacturers like GM and Boeing partner with academic institutions, government agencies, and software vendors to increase the job readiness of  STEM graduates. The episode shares findings from our Developing the STEM Workforce of the Future: Partnering to Meet the Demand for Engineering and Manufacturing Talent paper. A key finding is

Developing the STEM Workforce of the Future

Developing the STEM Workforce of the Future: Partnering to Meet the Demand for Engineering and Manufacturing Talent discusses the shortcomings of the current education system in producing a sufficient number of qualified candidates to fill engineering and manufacturing jobs. The study doesn’t focus on the gap, but instead identifies some of the causes and explores

Leveraging the Digital Factory

Leveraging the Digital Factory: Enhancing Productivity from Operator to Enterprise provides visibility to the way manufacturers utilize Manufacturing Process Management (MPM) processes and solutions to help reduce cost, speed time to market, and improve product quality. The paper features interviews from companies that are leveraging MPM to digitally prototype plant layouts, material flow, production lines,

Digital Prototypes – Yes. But for a Manufacturing Plant?

A quick peek into some research on … the use of digital prototyping techniques and technologies to design (and redesign) efficient manufacturing plants. Most of the times I discuss “digital prototyping” it regards products. But the same concepts apply when using digital prototyping in the plant – namely using digital models to increase design efficiency and get designs right the first time. Today I am happy to share my new report with you, Digital Prototyping in the Plant: Improving Manufacturing Agility with the Digital Factory.
