The engineering field is truly one of the most important and influential professions in existence - affecting basically everything we touch. Machine Design magazine takes an interesting step back and looks at the evolution the engineering profession has gone through in the last 80 years.

The time for change is now for the automotive industry, as The Big Three face a major crossroads in the way their businesses are structured. Despite the economic challenges, they now have a new opportunity to be a player in the impending global transformation, as summarized by Managing Automation.

As many shops are trying to do more with less, it is critical to ensure that your staff is properly skilled and trained in all business areas - including CAD. Simple tools or tests can help gauge skill-level, and training is always available. Rather than viewing training as a nice-to-have add-on, companies should realize it is not less important than the actual software purchase. What good are even the best of tools if not used optimally and efficiently?

The businesses that will survive in this market are those that have a devotion to innovation and invest in technology. American Trim, LLC is one such company that is taking many strides in the right direction. See what they're doing and how it makes a difference.
