Automated Manufacturing Skill and Task Training:

Precision and automated manufacturing requires highly skilled operators and maintenance employees to operate and maintain the high-tech and expensive equipment. Most competitive manufacturers use programmable logic controllers and sophisticated robotic equipment. The maintenance and repair is not only time consuming, but it is can be quite expensive if production is negatively affected. Highly skilled machine operators must be able to set up and operate their equipment effectively and efficiently. They must be able to clear jams, handle cold starts not only as needed but safely. Troubleshooting skills save high cost maintenance and down production time. Maintenance personnel must be able to make critical adjustments, schedule preventative maintenance procedures and make repairs in a timely manner. Troubleshooting and upgrading machinery is essential to any maintenance department.


The Precision Manufacturing faculty and staff can provide the initial assessments, both written and hands-on identification assessments to determine cost efficient and relevant training that will fill skill gaps in these areas.
