  • 3. A Shortage of Skilled Workers
    • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by the year 2010, America will face a skilled-worker shortage of 8 million, increasing to approximately 14 million by 2020.
    • … through 2014 employers will be seeking:
      • 17,000 industrial/manufacturing engineers
      • 14,000 mechanical engineers
      • 14,000 engineering technicians
      • 273,000 metal and plastic production workers
  • 4. The 21st Century workforce is not just about making sure that Silicon Valley has enough engineers. Its mission is to provide hope — to ensure that all American workers have the opportunity to equip themselves with the necessary tools to succeed in their careers and in whatever field they choose in this new and dynamic global economy. Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao, March 6, 2001 The 21st Century Workforce
  • 5. Middle school and high school are important times for early postsecondary planning, and many educational organizations and the U.S. Department of education recommend that students begin planning for college as early as sixth grade.

  • 7. PLTW CIM
    • CIM students will be introduced to:
      • The history of manufacturing
      • Manufacturing processes
      • Robotics and automation
  • 8. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM )
    • How are things made?
    • What processes go into creating objects?
    • Is the process for making a water bottle the same as it is for a musical instrument?
    • How do assembly lines work?
    • How has automation changed the face of manufacturing?
    • These are just a few of the questions that are answered in the Computer Integrated Manufacturing™ course.
  • 9. PLTW CIM
    • The course is built around several key concepts:
      • Computer Modeling – using a three dimensional, solid modeling software package with mass property analysis.
      • CNC Equipment – understanding the machine tools and its operating and programming aspects.
      • CAM Software – converting computer generated geometry into a program to drive CNC machine tools.
      • Robotics – using a robot for materials handling and assembly operations.
      • Flexible Manufacturing Systems – working in teams to design manufacturing work cells and table top factory simulations.
  • 10. Keeping Students Excited and Engaged
    • SME-EF recognizes the importance of keeping students engaged and excited about STEM education through extracurricular activities.
    • After school activities allow for students to put into practice the math and science skills learned in the classroom.
  • 11. Keeping Students Excited and Engaged
    • SME-EF endorses the programs of the following partners:
      • 4-H
      • National Center for Manufacturing Education (NCME)
      • National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)
      • American Welding Society (AWS)
      • Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
      • FIRST
      • Skills USA
      • Future Cities Competition
      • Shop Rat
      • National Robotics Challenge
  • 12. What can CIM do for AOE Schools?
    • The PLTW CIM course offers AOE the opportunity to establish manufacturing career centers at high schools around the country where SME Chapters/members could be linked as mentors and their companies as Internship/Externship providers
    • The CIM programs would allow us to strategically establish sites that are part of the PLTW, SME-EF & AOE network in areas where manufacturing is vibrant and strong
    • Also, it will allow SME-EF to link our available scholarships ($650,000 in 2009) to students who have come through AOE programs
