Londonderry, NH (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
Scientific Management Techniques (SMT), the global leader in performance based industrial skills assessments, has developed a CNC Skills Assessment program designed to streamline the hiring process and solve the skills shortage by identifying and measuring the skills and competencies of candidates for CNC operation positions prior to hire. With the CNC assessment program hiring managers will know if a candidate possesses the skills required to drive productivity in their facility.
The CNC program is the latest addition to SMT’s lineup of industrial skill assessment solutions designed to improve productivity and profitability across a wide variety of manufacturing platforms.
SMT's skills solutions have been improving manufacturing efficiencies since 1970. The company's programs are currently deployed in thirty-one countries.
“Every industrial organization wants to hire the best people they can find to operate and maintain their facility”, states SMT Founder and Chairman Richard Whouley. “These assessment programs, utilizing our unique Non-Verbal, Non-Written, Performance-Based testing and scoring methodology, identify skills that traditional written skill assessments are not designed for and are unable to recognize. Our assessment machines take the uncertainty out of the hiring process and dramatically enhance productivity in the industrial facility.”
In addition to the CNC skills assessment program, SMT provides Mechanical, Electrical, and PLC assessment machines that incorporate a similar performance based testing methodology.
In a recent survey conducted by Deloitte and the National Association of Manufacturers, two-thirds of respondents said they were suffering from a “moderate to severe” shortage of skilled production workers. SMT feels they have the right short-term and long-term solution to the skills shortage. Pete Bachert, SMT’s Director of Training, explains “our industrial skill assessment solutions solve the short-term hiring problem facing industry by identifying, with 100% accuracy, the most skilled and most trainable candidates in the available labor pool. The long-term solution to the skills gap is clearly education and our demand driven industrial skills training program is highly effective in a relatively short period of time due to the curriculum design and the extensive use of hands-on training aids.”
SMT reports a significant increase in business as industrial and education organizations search for an effective, affordable solution to the skills shortage.
