Regardless where they're located, manufacturing plants and factories across North America share something in common: manufacturing headaches.

The labor shortage is a big one. Finding great people and retaining those same great people is becoming more of a challenge. Productivity is increasing and people are not staying with companies for many years, as the job market has become very competitive. Effectively managing the day to day operations becomes more of a challenge. Ops managers are throwing money at training resources to only have an employee move out of the organization.

You might say, your company is different as there are employees who have been around for a very long time. That is fantastic! However, these employees do retire; hiring and retaining great people will still be a constant focus and an ongoing challenge. 

Technology is helping manufacturing companies address the reality of labor shortages and skills gaps. Many manufacturing companies remain hesitant to explore new technology, keeping it "old school" rather than investigating how investment in manufacturing software solutions can drastically improve performance, save time and resources, and increase productivity while reducing dependence on labor.
