Combat the existing and pending skills gap
In manufacturing, on-the-job training (OJT) is recognized as one of the best ways to share knowledge about processes and procedures. As more and more retirees leave the workforce and take their expertise with them, the industry has reached a critical moment.
In many facilities, OJT is only as good as the most experienced worker. The key is capturing that valuable tribal knowledge and standardizing it.
