Londonderry, NH -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2012 -- Scientific Manufacturing Techniques’ (SMT) manufacturing skills assessment solves the skills shortage and predicts employee success in the manufacturing facility. The hands-on assessment machines identify and measure the skills required to operate, maintain, and troubleshoot a modern manufacturing facility.
The portable manufacturing skills assessments deliver a scientific based, data driven workforce skill assessment solution that lowers the risk and cost of hiring, as well as drives industrial performance by increasing the skill level of the workforce. The data driven hiring process allows manufacturers to make better hiring decisions based on proven, validated success factors and extend lean initiatives into the hiring process. Identifying and measuring skills prior to hire is the single most effective means to ensure a quality, highly productive hire in manufacturing.
SMT's industrial skill assessment machines are used in the hiring process globally for the selection and evaluation of maintenance mechanics, machine operators, industrial electricians, PLC technicians, electro-mechanical personnel and CNC operation personnel.
SMT's assessment machines replicate conditions found in manufacturing facilities. The machines, together with validated assessment methodologies, identify and measure skills and competencies that traditional written tests are not designed for and are unable to recognize.
Scientific Management Techniques, www.scientific-management.com, has delivered industrial skills training and assessment services for four decades. There are two primary objectives when providing industrial training:
… deliver highly effective training that immediately impacts productivity, and
… deliver the training quickly and efficiently returning manpower back to production as soon as possible
SMT achieves these objectives due to the demand-driven curriculum design and the extensive use of over two hundred (200) hands-on training aids. The on-going skills shortage mandates this robust curriculum and training methodology; it translates efficiently into formal education as schools work with industry to identify effective training solutions creating workers with the required skillsets. SMT continues to deliver training in industrial facilities and works closely with schools and community colleges.
Scientific Management Techniques is the global leader in performance-based skill assessments for industry. The assessment capabilities, together with demand-driven skills training program, are used in manufacturing and education organizations in thirty-one countries to solve the skills shortage and drive industrial productivity.
