Optimizing a shrinking global workforce
Manufacturers across industries and the globe are experiencing a growing manpower shortage.
In Japan, an aging population of skilled workers is approaching retirement. One-child laws in China, skills gaps in the United States, and falling numbers of European Union workers have also contributed to the shortfall. In recent years, companies have begun automating operations, applying efficiency measures, and incorporating robots to compensate for the lack of skilled laborers.
