Addressing the Manufacturing Skills Shortage

One blog in the industry that I read regularly is written by Derek Singleton who is ERP Analyst at Software Advice. He posted some thougts on how we can overcome the skills gap in manufacturing.

He states, "The media has amply covered the manufacturing skills gap. Little attention, however, has been given to how we can overcome this deficit. I discuss three ways in my article that we can equip people with the right skills:

   1. Strengthen educational partnerships
   2. Invest in coporate in-house training programs
   3. Energize the workforce of tomorrow"

Anyone out there have any thoughts on this matter? You can post here, or preferrably head over to his blog and start a discussion.
