1 Introductions –Dave Johnson: Director of Industrial Services for the Chautauqua County Chamber and Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier –Where we are headed in the world of manufacturing –Dream It Do It: What the program is about and why I am here

2 Did you know: –Virtually everything around you has been manufactured? –70% of the manufacturing jobs in this country will become available over the next 10 years. –Buffalo area will lose 50,000 manufacturing workers to retirement or ½ their workforce over the next 10 years. –America is still the worlds largest manufacturing economy, producing 18.2% of global manufactured products according to World Bank. China is now a close second at 17.6%.

3 Did you know: –U.S. manufacturing produces $1.8 trillion of value each year, or 12.2% of the U.S. GDP. For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.48 is added to the economy. –U.S. manufacturing supports 17.2 million jobs. –In 2011, the average U.S. manufacturing worker earned $77,060. The average worker in all other industries earned $60,168.

4 Did you know: –U.S. manufacturers are the most productive workers in the world, far surpassing worker productivity of any other major manufacturing economy. –U.S. manufacturers perform two-thirds of all private sector Research and Development in the nation, driving more innovation than any other sector. –Taken alone, U.S. manufacturing would be the tenth largest economy in the world.

5 Did you know: –Manufacturers across the country are experiencing problems with finding skilled labor. –Most local manufacturers are looking for high school PLUS two years: Associates Degree Certification Computer Skills Math Skills

6 Did you know: –Graduating Engineers – We are falling way behind! Japan will graduate 200,000 Engineers this year. India will graduate 100,000 Engineers this year. The U.S. will graduate 75,000 of which roughly 50% are foreign and will return to their own countries.

7 The Skills Shortage National Scene Computer Controlled Machine Operators/ Machinists/Mechanics and Press Brake Operators 1 st Line Supervisors Production Workers (Machinists and others) Industrial Maintenance Workers Accountants Human Resource Specialists Supply Chain Leaders Engineers – All disciplines Roll Form Specialists Inspectors, Testers Mechanics Tool and Die Makers Welders, Cutters, Solderers, Brazers Sales and Marketing Mgrs Lean Mfg Experts Six Sigma Belts

8 Show me the money! Average Annual Salaries For High Tech Manufacturing Jobs : Assembler - $32kAvionics Tech - $47k Chemical Eng. - $78kCNC Operator - $43k Cost Estimator - $51kDrafter - $47k Electrical Eng. - $80kElectrician - $42k Equipment Tech. - $40kEnvironmental Eng. - $71k Industrial Eng. - $36kInspector - $32k Manufacturing Eng. - $65k Mechanical Eng. - $71k Petroleum Eng. - $93kPlastic/Metal Mold maker - $46k Plant Manager - $190kSemi conductor Engineer - $90k Tool & Die Maker - $45kWelder - $32k US DOL Statistics


10 By the year 2020 the projection is there will be 123,000,000 High Paying, High Technology jobs available in the United States and 50,000,000 people capable of doing them. We have a large number of people with Bachelors degrees entering the workforce, but only 5% of what is required with degrees in STEM education. Major Concerns

11 Why We Have a Crisis The Potential Workforce Pool is Declining –Aging Population / Baby boomers Retire –Smaller graduating classes –Stagnating Population Growth Technology Requirements of Manufacturing are Exceeding the Skills Base of the Workforce. There are Fewer Technology Oriented Students in the Pipeline. Graduation rates below what is required to support the available jobs. Lack of understanding about what the next generation needs to be competitive.



14 A Pro-Manufacturing Economic Growth, Awareness, and Education Initiative

15 Dream It Do It - Program Overview “Dream It Do It” is a national program striving to recruit the region’s young people into family sustaining career opportunities in advanced manufacturing. Young people today have a negative perception of manufacturing. This perception is reinforced by national media, regional economic challenges, the educational system and a lack of understanding of what manufacturing is about.

16 Dream It Do It - Program Overview In cooperation with the National Association of Manufacturers, the Dream It Do It manufacturing careers campaign in New York State was first launched in Chautauqua County, grew into Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties and is now being expanded into Erie and Niagara Counties. In Western New York we have assembled a strong collaboration of companies, educational institutions and economic development organizations and have launched a proactive program designed to train a work ready labor pool. Chautauqua County holds the Dream It Do It New York State license and we have developed strategies to help meet our members goal of preparing the next generation workforce.

17 Dream It Do It Three Prong Strategy Marketing – Key to drawing young people into the arena of Advanced Manufacturing. Education – We must work closely with the educational system to insure that these students have the right foundation. A strong push should be made for Project Lead The Way. Statewide Initiative – We now have the New York State Dream It Do It License and we will use this to heighten the awareness of the Southern Tier and influence people at the State level for support.

18 DREAM IT DO IT RESULTS Over 8,000 students participating in events including: Career Fairs School Presentations in five counties Junior Achievement Partnerships Lean Manufacturing Training Annual Robotics Competition Technology Tours with local Industries and Community Colleges Job Corps Partnerships 42% Increase in enrollment in Technology programs at local Community College.
