Manufacturing and Operations Trends Impacting Recruiting & Consulting
Our recruiting team partners with companies to understand the detailed skills needed and provides the right talent quickly, flexibly and affordably and often focusing on new skill sets needed by our clients.
Here are some of the key trends driving manufacturing and operations recruiting needs:
- Operational Executives With “Hands-On” Engineering Skills: Increasingly, companies are in need of operational leaders who can play “hands-on” roles in addressing issues and opportunities. Companies are looking for more than operational leaders who are versed in lean manufacturing techniques and manage from their office. There is an increasing need for recruiting executives who are engineers and have experience and know-how to work and mentor the engineering team and other employees.
- 3-D Printing: 3-D printing improves their outputs while decreasing waste. Where a single part might require a half-dozen pieces to be crafted and assembled, a 3-D printer can create the part in one piece. These printers also recycle their materials and greatly reduce time spent waiting for replacement parts. Recruiting executives and plant managers requires professionals that have skills and experience with incorporating 3-D printing.
- Internet of Things (IOT) Manufacturing in particular has benefited from how IoT has streamlined processes and simplified complicated work flows. With increased automation comes increased efficiency. This not only improves the capacity to focus on customer needs through better online support and mass customization, but it also provides insight into new revenue sources. The concept of “smart factory” enabled by containing data that connects CAD/CAM, suppliers, ERP, and production machinery and by the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) allows manufacturing operation management and powerful new analysis. Recruiting Operations leadership that has the skills to leverage this capability is becoming an increasing need.
