The catalyst behind this project is the shortage of semi-skilled to high-skilled workers for industrial robotics and advanced manufacturing operations, initially in Crawford, Hardin, Marion and Wyandot Counties.
Michael “Mac” McVey of ClearView Management Resources conducted a study sponsored by The Ohio State University to solve the skills-gap issue in this four-county region, communities and educational institutions must understand the competencies that businesses are seeking. This grant funded research to identify specific skills required in advanced manufacturing to input into a shared database. The grant also provided the foundation for an alliance of employers, educational institutions, economic development organizations, and other vested stakeholders.
