According to manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler, the U.S. automotive manufacturing industry is experiencing a major skills gap. More than half expect to lose 20 percent or more of their workforce due to upcoming retirements and one in five are unsure how to fill vacated positions in the next several years.
Predictive analytics and machine learning are being deployed as an innovative technology for efficient employee recruitment and placement in the manufacturing industry. Finding the best, most qualitied individuals in a timely manner will save valuable energy and resources for automotive manufacturers and suppliers while increasing profitability.
OEMs and top-tier automotive suppliers are streamlining operations and workforce management in an integrated solution set that accommodates on-demand workforce needs through unconventional, predictive analytics capabilities.
These technologies provide continuous metric analysis to review key performance indicators while driving highly targeted workforce solutions.
