/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// In a rapidly changing economy, one truth unites people across the country: more jobs - and better jobs - are a good thing for everyone. When companies bring new jobs to an area, this job growth not only benefits employees, but also creates ripple effects that extend to their families, their communities, their cities, and their regions. In the Southeast, much of this job growth in recent years has been in the advanced manufacturing sector. Fastgrowing cities such as Savannah, Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville support substantial automotive and aerospace clusters, offering easy access to port, rail, and other transit options. Other high-demand cities such as Raleigh, Charlotte, and Atlanta serve as hubs for growing commercial and tech markets, further propelling the region’s growth. Growth in the Southeast is likely to accelerate in the coming years, as the aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic lead people to reconsider lifestyle options including less density and the ability to work remotely. Growth attracts investment, and investment generates jobs. WWW.LS3P.COM

THE FUTURE O F A DVA N C E D M A N U FA CT U R I N G ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The newest wave of growth in the industrial sector brings not just jobs, but highly desirable jobs. Today’s manufacturing processes bear little resemblance to those of our grandparents’ era. Advanced manufacturing is cleaner, safer, and faster than ever before, with a more consistent quality of product. The tools are infinitely more intricate and interconnected, and their operation and maintenance requires a high-level skill set commensurate with their technological complexity. Thanks to continued investment in workforce development programs and advanced manufacturing training facilities by community colleges and industry partners across the region, a highly-skilled workforce has formed to support this economic growth while providing an excellent return on investment for communities. 4

FUTURE FORWARD


Waves of digital technology are remaking America’s advanced industries–those industries like auto, aerospace, and medical device manufacturing that depend on high levels of R&D investment and sizable STEMknowledgeable workforces. BROOKINGS INSTITUTE

BRIDGING THE GAP RELEVANT TRAINING, REAL RESULTS

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Training spaces for advanced manufacturing are a relatively new building type, and LS3P is proud to have been at the forefront of developing best practices for these designs in collaboration with a number of our community college and university partners. Above all, these facilities must be designed for flexibility. Generous, durable, multifunctional spaces allow reconfiguration as tools and equipment change so that facilities can evolve along with the technology. In many cases, these training spaces are also transparent, putting the learning and technology on full display to highlight a new paradigm of advanced manufacturing and the opportunities it provides. Our nation’s community colleges have been instrumental in addressing these questions for decades. The community college model consistently excels at helping workers respond to economic opportunities by anticipating where the needs are, and creating curricula to re-train workers accordingly. It is a nimble system that responds rapidly to opportunity. Manufacturing partnerships with community colleges are reciprocal. Manufacturers help set curricula tailored to specific training needs, including certifications and re-certifications. Colleges benefit from increased enrollment, and in many cases, donated or leased state of the art machinery, including five-axis routers, rapid prototypers, and metrology tools. WWW.LS3P.COM

Preparing individuals for careers in rapidly changing advanced industries is going to require radically different approaches to education and skills training, whether it be new approaches to competency based certificate programs, short-term “bootcamp,” or entirely new online solutions. BROOKINGS INSTITUTE

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Across the Southeast, communities are recognizing the economic potential within the advanced manufacturing industry and are searching for ways to invest in training programs. Funding mechanisms vary, but many of these programs are created in collaboration with public entities such as the South Carolina 8

Commerce Department’s SC Ready program, which is designed to connect manufacturers with specific skill training programs. In North Carolina, the Golden Leaf Foundation frequently invests in job training programs. Others are funded in part by grants and loans from the US Economic Development Association.

TREND FORECASTS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Despite significant recent disruptions to the global economy, the US remains the world’s largest manufacturing economy. The number of US manufacturing employees has been growing steadily since 2010, with a commensurate growth in production. Many recent trends bode well for continuing growth in the industrial sector, particularly in the Southeast. The region outpaces many other areas in terms of attracting both companies and workers; affordability of land, coupled with a high quality of living and easy access to port, rail, and aviation hubs, make it a desirable place to do business. These trends point to the increasing demand for a highly skilled workforce and the continued need for investment in advanced manufacturing training programs and facilities to support this pipeline of talent. 10

FUTURE FORWARD


ONSHORING Manufacturing companies seeing tighter control over their supply chains and facilities will likely accelerate the existing trend towards onshoring and re-shoring of American manufacturing jobs, particularly in the wake of COVID-19 related supply chain disruptions. This trend will boost demand for a skilled pipeline of US manufacturing employees.

LIFE SCIENCES The biotech, laboratory, research, and biomedical markets are likely to increase as well. An active market even before the onset of COVID-19, life sciences facilities may see growing demand along with the need to develop, produce, and distribute both vaccines and therapies on a large scale.

ROBOTICS Robotics, cobotics, and augmented reality will increasingly allow for highly skilled workers to use precision mechatronics tools to blend the best of critical thinking and automation. The Internet of Things will continue to drive advances in smart technologies and logic controlled autonomic manufacturing.

RAPID PROTOTYPING Companies frequently use rapid prototyping techniques such as stereolithography, selective laser sintering, or sheet lamination to create high-fidelity prototypes in the process of testing new design solutions. Space and infrastructure to support this highly specialized equipment must be tailored to accommodate these processes.

S U S TA I N A B I L I T Y Consumers are driving increasing demand for sustainably sourced and produced goods. This desire for market-driven sustainable manufacturing could provide opportunities for differentiation between companies who are innovators in sustainable manufacturing. WWW.LS3P.COM
