Successfully Utilize Industrial Training Courseware

The Bloomberg News recent survey of economists reported a 0.5 percent increase in factory, mine and utility output for the month of March based on the median of 68 forecasts. The March gain follows a 0.7 percent increase in February. The expected share of industrial capacity currently in use is approximately 81.4 percent, the highest it has been since September of 2000 which came in at 81.2 percent.

The increase comes as no surprise. Since the beginning of the year, manufacturers like Boeing Co. have received an increased amount of orders from Europe and Japan as growth picks up overseas as well. On the home front, U.S. plants have also begun investing in expansions and newer equipment.

With operating rates increasing to above average, bottlenecking in the production process becomes a concern, ultimately causing manufacturers to have to drive up prices. Other factors may also contribute to the possibility of a spike in inflation, including the fact that the unemployment rate has reached a four year low.

Industrial training can help enhance your employees’ industry and job specific skill sets so that your work force is not only multi-skilled but will also allow you to do more with less and increase profitability, all in an effort to avoid the threat of bottlenecking.
