The Association For Manufacturing Technology, McLean, Va., has released a new IMTSTV In Brief video at www.IMTS.com/IMTSTV. It features Steve Frizinger, NetApp’s virtualization alliance manager, Java author, and economics writer, discussing the current state of the manufacturing industry.
He 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.
Frizinger speaks about the future of manufacturing jobs in the U.S. and 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.
