APS Plastics has recently partnered with KIPP Sunnyside High School to help grow their "Engineering Design Kitchen" (EDK) program. The EDK program teaches students basic engineering and making skills. It's a great opportunity to allow students to put their imagination to work and make things by hand.
APS Plastics is excited to announce the newest addition to our team: Martin Hoang, a Mechanical Engineering Intern, joining us from The University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering.
American manufacturing companies have faced an onslaught of competition over the last few decades. The primary competitor has been in the form of offshoring to low labor rate countries, like China and other Asian countries where the labor force was happy to accept much lower wage rates than US workers. Over the last few years though, the dynamic of competition seems to be changing. China’s average wages for manufacturing jobs have more than doubled over the last few years (https://tradingeconomics.com/china/wages-in-manufacturing). India’s average wages have also shown signs of increasing over the last decade (https://tradingeconomics.com/india/wages). The social impact for these countries will be largely positive as a new middle class begins to emerge over time.

Much has been written about Industry 4.0 and its subset Manufacturing 4.0. But there is not a lot written about the people required to meet this changing landscape of making things. Where are the 4.0 workers? In the last blog, I wrote about The Future of Meaningful Work – how leaders and designers must rethink the way they create the machines and systems in the new industrial world. There is a companion part of this effort: to help create the industrial worker for the new manufacturing revolution: WORKER 4.0.
