The shop floor is rapidly changing as it evolves from a place bound by hands-on labor and interpersonal communication skills to an environment of smart machines that collect and analyze data, captured in real-time, to provide valuable insights into the manufacturing process. Meanwhile, the skills gap widens as advanced manufacturing firms struggle to find and train workers with the skills they need to keep pace with the technological-industrial revolution.
It's an exciting time to be alive my friends. We got augmented reality games on our phones, AI-virus software searching for vulnerabilities and burritos at Burger King. Times are a changing. Years ago, when US workers were frustrated by waves and waves of outsourcing to China and India, former GE CEO Jack Welch called outsourcing a temporary problem. His thesis was that eventually that cheap labor overseas wouldn't be so cheap anymore. The middle class would rise up in these developing nations and then the cost of labor would increase. The increase would cancel out the benefit of manufacturing overseas and the phenomena would reverse itself.
Talk to any manufacturing executive and odds are they have heard of Industry 4.0.
Originally coined in Germany through a technology project to computerize manufacturing, Industry 4.0 has now launched into a worldwide initiative to transform the manufacturing sector. Japan and China have even coined their own "Industrial Value Chain Initiative" and "Made in China 2025" slogans to emphasize their dedication to this strategy.
Manufacturing in New York declined for a second straight month, and the index of activity is back in negative territory.
The Empire Manufacturing index from the New York Federal Reserve fell to -4.2 in August.
Economists had forecast that it improved to 2 from 0.55 in July, according to Bloomberg. The NY Fed surveyed companies who said new orders and employment remained little changed.
