Future digital workforce needs outlined

August 24, 2017

Recognizing the growing need for a skilled workforce in the increasingly digital manufacturing sector, a new report from the public-private effort of DMDII and ManpowerGroup aims to capture the changing technology and business interactions, and the job roles that are having an impact on the sector. The year-long body of work attempts to answer, among other questions, how workforce roles and job structures flex to accelerate the succession of a transforming global economy. By defining emerging roles and skills in the digital manufacturing and design space, the authors hope industry and academia will be able to better align for training and hiring. A full copy of the report, The Digital Workforce Succession in Manufacturing is available for download from: UI LABS at www.uilabs.org/taxonomy.
