Social SCP will probably be the next trend in manufacturing and supply chain and it makes a lot of sense looking at other trends, such as cloud sourcing, social media, etc.

Millennials & What They Bring to the Manufacturing Table

Millennials & What They Bring to the Manufacturing Table | Welding Innovations & Manufacturing | Scoop.it

Young professionals of the Millennial generation haven't been jumping at the chance for a career in manufacturing. Their parents and society at large have played a role in that. Attending technical school to learn the skilled trades has been waylaid by the promise of repute and riches following a turn at a four-year college or university. The prevailing stigma of jobs in manufacturing and other skilled trades have carried over into the last two generations, but these views are very clearly outdated.

Manufacturing isn't the "dirty" job of old, but rather quite the opposite as there is a real opportunity to educate Millennials on the increasingly innovative environment of manufacturing and the role they can play in driving the industry forward. In fact, we are currently undergoing a "manufacturing renaissance" as more companies look to produce on American soil again. With that, an urgent and growing need now exists. While the number of job opportunities continues to increase, we are battling archaic ideas alongside a current skilled labor force that is drastically aging out. According to 2013 reports, for every four trade positions professionals retire from, the industry is producing only one replacement.
