            “Carl Coletti, an adviser to Nomad Global Communications Solutions. He hopes to help FVCC students focus on what have traditionally been called “soft skills.” “

            I’ve been running manufacturing plants for 20 years, domestically, in Latin America and Europe…and I have no idea what this guy is talking about. And frankly, it sounds like a colossal waste of time and money.

            What manufacturing needs is CNC programmers, automation technicians, and manufacturing engineering technology students. We need a workforce that comes in the door understanding statistical process control, statistical quality control, and GMP (Good Manufacturing) / GDP (Good Documentation) practices. The single hardest positions to fill are Shift Supervisors, CNC Programmers, and Manufacturing Engineers. From the sounds of it FVCC is on the right track…provided they stick to the core skills and avoid spending time and money on this “soft skills” garbage.
