Best Practices and Strategies for Operations Training, Part 1
Keywords: Manufacturing, Plant Production, Manufacturing, Physical Asserts, Aging Workforces, Millennials.
In today's manufacturing business environment, companies are pushing plant production to the limits and in doing so affect both physical asserts and people. At the same time, both processes and control systems are becoming increasingly more complex. Staffed largely with aging workforces, with many experienced operators getting ready to retire and less-experienced workers replacing them, companies need to ensure that they can continue to operate their plants in a safe, reliable, and profitable manner. As a result, operations' training is emerging as a very important and integral part of today's manufacturing strategies.
The new generation of workers, sometimes referred to as "millennials," have different experience, knowledge, and learning behaviors than the generation that will leave the plant behind. Many embrace experiential and other alternative learning approaches that employ Google-like search techniques. As a result, conventional dynamic simulators or training manuals may no longer be adequate to support plant operations.
