There was an interesting talk given by Regina Dugan of DARPA on December 14, 2011 for the engineering students and social studies students at MIT titled; "Just Make It" which of course is a "take-off" literally on the Nike Brand theme; Just Do It! - in this talk she mentions an aircraft manufacturing company which works without assembly lines and has been able to increase time to build from start to finish by a factor of 2. Each aircraft stays put, the folks working on it move. Okay so, that makes sense, and Rolls Royce and other high-end auto manufacturers use similar techniques, as to many of the hand-crafted high-end specialty cars.
Similarly, offshore manufacturers incur expenses like shipping, inventory, communication, travel, training, permits, duties, tariffs, compliance with import/export restrictions and others which they may not incur in their country. This in the long run pushes the production cost.
If a job seeker conducts some job research of the manufacturing industry, he will find that U.S. manufacturing employers are seeking job candidates with skills in four areas:
Manufacturing degree (or a degree in mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering). Knowledge of Quality systems, such as Six Sigma, ISO 9001, TQM, Kaizen, etc. Manufacturing Robot Maintenance and Programming. CNC Machining (set-up, operation and programming)
