Data The Digital Side of Manufacturing

The industry is evolving. New developments are propelling the industry forward into fully automated machining systems. And with new technology, comes the demand for a higher skill set.

Job descriptions are changing

The power of data is shedding a new light on manufacturing. The industry is in high demand of workers with the right competencies to analyze and track progress. Manufacturing components is no longer just pushing buttons or operating heavy machinery.

The industry needs workers who can code programs, understand software and learn from the data they are collecting. CAD/CAM programmers can digitally design a part and bring it to life. It’s about turning a concept into reality.
