3 Education and Manufacturing, Where & How do they Connect for Success?
4 There are only three ways that a country builds wealth – you; Make thingsMine things and;Grow thingsEverything else is ancillary to that. Manufacturing has the best record for add-on jobs. For every job that is created in manufacturing, there are multiple add-on jobs that are created as a result.” –Pat Lee, Fabricators & Manufacturers Association
5 Not only the wealth; but the independence and security of a Country, appear to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufactures.~ Alexander Hamilton (1791)
6 Is Manufacturing a Good Career Path Option? Manufacturing in America is Big Business with Unlimited Potential for Current and Emerging GenerationsManufacturing Creates Economic WealthThe United States Must be Competitive in Manufacturing to Survive Today’s Global Business Environment / EconomyManufacturing Can’t Just Survive; It Must ThriveCooperative Efforts are Vital at All Levels (Business & Industry, Education and Community)Manufacturing Organizations Will Need Thousands of Qualified People to Replace Retiring Workers and / or Openings. Note:Approximately % of the manufacturing workforce is on the shop floor (semi-skilled operators / assemblers etc)Replacements – High Demand / Short SupplyTechnology is Vastly Changing the Manufacturing EnvironmentMore Professional Jobs Will be Intergal to the Success of ManufacturingManufacturing Jobs Will Continue to Pay More Per Year Than the Average Service JobManufacturing Companies are Posturing to Bring Manufacturing Back to the United States

8 In the most recent data, manufacturers contributed $2 In the most recent data, manufacturers contributed $2.09 trillion to the economy, having risen steadily since being $1.73 trillion in 2009.The sector currently accounts for 12.0 percent of GDP. For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.37 is added to the economy, the highest multiplier effect of any economic sector. The US produces 21% of all global manufactured products.Manufacturers can choose from locations in an increasing number of communities with location advantages that meet their needs. Excellence in education is a key factor in site selection.Manufacturing supports an estimated 17.6 million jobs in the United States about one in six private-sector jobs. More than 12 million Americans (or 9 percent of the workforce) are employed directly in manufacturing.In 2013, the average manufacturing worker in the United States earned $77,506 annually, including pay and benefits. The average worker in all industries earned $62,546. Taken alone, US manufactures would be the 8th largest economy in the world.Manufacturers in the United States are the most productive in the world, far surpassing the worker productivity of any other major manufacturing economy, leading to higher wages and living standards.
9 InnovationInnovation is the key driver of competitiveness, wage and job growth, and long term economic growth. The U.S. is lagging behind in innovation in its manufacturing sector relative to high-wage nations such as Germany and Japan.Individual companies cannot justify the investment required to fully develop many important new technologies or to create the full infrastructure to support advanced manufacturing. Private investment must be complemented by public investment (public-private partnership).A sustainable, lean, industry-focused innovation model will create an environment for American manufacturing innovation that will advance U.S. manufacturing competitiveness and drive export growth.

23 Problem SolvingLike all organizations, manufacturing companies have problems to solveTo resolve a problem a team of motivated cross-functional members are selected from the following areas;ManufacturingQualityMaintenanceEngineeringShipping/ReceivingAccountingPurchasingSalesEtc……
24 Example of How a Problem is Defined: Problem SolvingExample of How a Problem is Defined:
25 Problem SolvingExamples of tools utilized for data collection to either search for a problemor verify a countermeasure:
26 Measuring DevicesAs manufacturing has evolved, inspection is no longer conducted by Quality Control.To be more competitive, indirect labor reductions require that these tasks be performed by manufacturing operators.Key measuring devices utilized by manufacturing are Calipers and Micrometers.
27 Measuring DevicesThe main use of the Vernier caliper is to measure the internal and the external diameters of an object.
28 Measuring DevicesMicrometers are used for precise measurement of components in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.Types of Micrometers
29 Blueprint ReadingBasic blueprint reading is needed in the manufacturing industry to enable team members to understand how to:Identify the height, width, and length dimensions of a part by reviewing a drawing.Interpret the various symbols and notations used on drawings (Geometric Tolerancing).It is necessary for team members to convert Metric to English and English to Metric as drawing callouts vary.
30 Blueprint Reading Common Geometric Tolerancing callouts: Example of common manufacturing Blueprint:
31 Work InstructionsIt is critical for manufacturing team members to understand and follow work instructions.A work instruction is written after a proven method of producing a quality product in a safe manner has been determined.Performing work the same way every time may be referred to as Standardized Work.Quality products can be produced time after time when a good method is created and standardized work is followed.Any out-of-standard work destroys continuous flow and makes it difficult to maintain efficient and consistent production.

40 Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program Industry has expressed a need for better-trained, entry-level “Direct” laborThis program is designed to meet the needs of local manufacturing facilities by providing a pool of well- trained, entry-level production associates.Graduates will complete both lecture and hands-on instructional activities (classroom and lab) that equip them with an understanding of modern manufacturing processes and procedures.
41 Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program TCAT Jackson will deliver the training via a “dual- enrollment” arrangement with the local school systems.Students will receive both high school and TCAT credit for passing the courses.In Henderson County, Lexington High and Scotts Hill High School students will come to the TCAT extension campus for the program.The Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s (MSSC) Certified Production Technician™ (CPT) computer- based course work is integrated into the program.
42 Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program The Certified Production Technician™ (CPT) program covers five (5) areas of emphasis via a computer-based learning system:Industrial Safety, Quality Practices & Measurement, Manufacturing Processes & Production, Maintenance Awareness and Green Production.When a student passes the required exams, they earn the CPT credential.
43 Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program Win/Win/Win:Meets local industry needsIntroduces students to manufacturing careersEquips students with a nationally recognized credential that validates their skillsGives students another option to keep them engaged in school and keep tracking to graduationContributes to local ECD efforts (industry recruiting)Students earn post-secondary credit at the high school level (paid for by lottery funds)
44 Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program Challenges:Gaining “buy-in” from more local industryPreferential hiring?Taking advantage of outside funding opportunitiesTCATs just had a 4.6% reduction in state appropriations“Drive to 55” (LEAP)Cost $750 to credential each studentGenerating student interest
45 In order to revitalize manufacturing and give a dynamic boost to our economy, we need to restructure the way we are educating our students and employees.
