Certified Manufacturing Practitioner Study

American Writer by Dr. Pietro Savo

The global economy relies heavily on manufacturing; hence selecting the means to ensure the sustained growth of the manufacturing industry is paramount. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of a certification to bridge the gap between manufacturing and research in the United States Manufacturing Industries through a common language. The researcher sought to understand the challenges from both a practitioner and researcher’s perspective. Manufacturing leaders participating in the survey for the feasibility study were from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rolls Royce, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and United Technologies; including supply chain leaders from business and the U.S. Government, with survey response rate of 48.7%. Eighty percent of the survey respondents agreed that there is a need for a new manufacturing practitioner certification. Eighty-three percent of the survey respondents agreed that a new certified professional would improve communication. Ninety-four percent of the survey respondents agreed that engaging in technology and educating people will increase manufacturing opportunities.

The study provided the educational capital to identify the need for developing a new joint manufacturing and research position, called the Certified Manufacturing Practitioner (CMP). CMP may provide the means to accept the linkage between the past, the present, and the future by developing business solutions from shared leader’s experiences in the manufacturing industries. A possible solution involves the creation of a new certified manufacturing practitioner program designed to improve knowledge sharing through case study evaluation. Study limitation; this study’s sample included principally the researchers past business and manufacturing consulting clients, which may introduce some bias. Additional studies are required to help companies understand the expertise and the resiliency of the modern workforce. Finding the strengths and weaknesses of employees becomes important to rediscovering the company’s value.
