Crosscut Initiatives Panel conferences and surveys have revealed that employee sources and skills are falling behind requirements to replace aging workers and cover workplace turnover in shipyards as well as manufacturing in general. U.S. manufacturing is in competition with other industries in the U.S. and in other nations. This project organized and conducted a conference that further connected shipbuilding and repair workforce development and skills initiatives with other national manufacturing and professional-technical education initiatives to achieve a more consolidated understanding and action plan. The summit shared specific manufacturing industry, workforce, board and related education provider new employee needs, common problems and best practice solutions to achieve greater national, regional and local unity; and made recommendations toward improving shipbuilding and repair efficiencies including cost reduction.
