Often times, in the manufacturing world, the term “manufacturing” gets a short-sighted explanation. It’s defined by Merriam-Webster as the process of making products especially with machines in factories. This is a very broad, dull, and unfair way to define an innovative and indispensable industry.
Manufacturing is not just production lines of machines and people pumping out large amounts of goods, it has come a long way from those traditional views. Nowadays manufacturing is much more exciting than ever before. It involves revolutionary technology, science, engineering, business, and marketing. In our modern age, we shouldn’t let old fashioned ideals of manufacturing prevent us from considering it as a potential career path.
The stigma that surrounds manufacturing is that of a dirty old job shop with grimy floors, oily machines and filth scattered throughout. Now picture this; high ceilings, spotless white floors and natural light beaming through a manufacturing facility each day. As you walk through a contemporary architecturally designed office, ‘Think Pods’ that allow space for designers and engineers to collaborate, modularize work and create connectivity throughout a workforce align the halls. Manufacturing today is modern. Manufacturing is clean. Manufacturing is innovative.
