During the State of the Union address earlier this year, President Obama said America should be "offering every student the hands-on computer science and math classes that make them job-ready on day one." The president has likely heard what many manufacturing companies say: We need students prepared with the certifications and skills to be productive upon graduation.

Students learn the fundamentals of gear manufacturing in this classroom and hands-on course. In the classroom, this course offers training in gearing and nomenclature, principles of inspection, gear manufacturing methods, and hobbing and shaping. In the hands-on gear lab, using manual machines, students can see the interaction between the cutting tool and the workpiece. They understand the process and the physics of making a gear and can apply this knowledge in working with CNC equipment commonly in use.

After two years of hype and the promise of gazillions of dollars in realized benefits, is this the year in which we’re going to see real automation applications? Will terms such as "Big Data" and "cloud analytics" finally make it into our mainstream vocabularies?

Engineers and professionals who work in industrial automation are hearing a lot of buzz about the convergence of information technology and operational technology in the Industrial Internet of Things. In the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, we shall see not only plant-wide network connectivity enabled by large-scale and low-cost wireless sensor networks but fully connected manufacturing-to-enterprise architectures for real-time monitoring and automated decision-making. If you are a machine controls engineer or perform a plant supervisory role, chances are the corporate IT group or even the chief information officer has come knocking on your door.

Will machines take the place of people in factories? This is one of the questions most frequently asked about Smart Manufacturing. Why? Because for many years the prevalent belief has been that business competitiveness is primarily achieved by reducing the cost of labor. And robots have long been viewed as the solution to the problem of labor costs.
The instruction manual for a typical CNC mill – the modern equivalent of a lathe that chisels parts from hunks of metal – is 200 pages long. The machine requires one to two years of training to operate, and those qualified to run it earn wages comparable to teachers or many others with bachelor’s degrees. Manufacturing has changed. The shop floors of most American industrial facilities would be unrecognizable to someone working in them only a generation ago. So have many of their jobs, pushing companies to retool their relationships with employees as they compete for a shrinking pool of skilled workers.

Two measures commonly used by the government to measure manufacturing’s overall impact on society are badly underestimating the impact of that critical sector. One is the proportion of gross domestic product for which manufacturing accounts. The other is the "multiplier effect," which measures the impact on other industries from an increase in economic activity by a specific industry.
