Indiana Advanced Manufacturing Education Collaborative (IAMEC) Grant Overview Vearl D. Turnpaugh Executive Director of Advanced Manufacturing Initiatives Grant Regions Lafayette Terre Haute Indianapolis Richmond Columbus Madison Evansville In November of 2006, Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana was awarded a $1.86 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA). The $1.86 million dollar award was the largest High Growth Job Training Initiative (HGJTI) grant awarded within the funded sector of Advanced Manufacturing. High Growth Job Training Initiative (HGJTI) For Advanced Manufacturing More specifically the High Growth Job Training Initiative targets three primary workforce issues: Training for Innovation • Increasing the skills of incumbent workers for new manufacturing technologies and processes • Developing training programs that fit employer needs and constraints • Creating integrated training programs for a company’s chain of suppliers Pipeline • Improving the public image of the industry in order to generate interest in manufacturing careers • Develop 21st century recruitment strategies • Addressing demographic shifts, including the retirement of the Baby Boomers, integrating the foreign-born workforce, and utilizing displaced workers and other alternative labor pools •Improving the basic employability skills of entry-level workers Capacity Building •Finding qualified instructors •Updating equipment for training •Defining competencies and career ladders and lattices The Triple Spiral Principle Industry/Education/Government Education Pipeline Capacity Building Training Training New Paths Curriculum/Degree Student Grant Initiatives Advanced Levels Reporting Manufacturing Centers Deliverables COOP/Internship Curriculum/Degree Approval Industry Government Current Skills Gap Analyze Future Skills Gap Manufacturing Centers Stabilize Current Gap Upgrade Employee Levels Develop Statewide Strategies Advanced Manufacturing Skills The Basis of Common Factors Student/Manufacturing Skills/Grant Initiatives Pre-Foundational or Basic skills – $157,500 (150 Students/Workers) Many portions of Indiana face severe challenges in initial manufacturing employability skills of potential employees. Potential employers encounter a pre-employment workforce that is deficient in Math, Reading, and Learning skills. This program will deliver pre- employment training in basic manufacturing competencies to help workers reach threshold skills for employability in manufacturing and for entry to certification training. MSSC Production Certification - $322,000 (140 Students/Workers) Ivy Tech has had success with implementing the Manufacturing Standards Skill Council MSSC certification program throughout the state. The MSSC curriculum offers production level skills in the areas of Manufacturing Processes, Quality Control, Safety, and Technical skills.

These technical skills represent the areas most commonly encountered while troubleshooting and repairing advanced manufacturing systems. Some areas of competency include; multi-craft maintenance, motor controls, welding, machine maintenance, blueprint reading, quality processes, pneumatics, hydraulics, computer controlled processes, and robotics. Design and Implementation of a new Advanced Manufacturing Curriculum for Ivy Tech The outcome of this capacity building activity will be a new curriculum and associate degree submitted to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. This responsive program will provide for development of true pathways into and through certificate and degree programs and to ensure that certificate and degree programs are built around the expressed needs of advanced manufacturers. The degree program will enable students to articulate between Ivy Tech and Purdue University Indiana Advanced Manufacturing Educational Collaborative Advanced Manufacturing Master Listing of Skills Manufacturing Quality Systems Enterprise Lean Concepts Math Concepts Problem Solving Computer Concepts Troubleshooting Electro- Teamwork Mechanical/Multicraft Leadership Concepts PLC Skills Technical Skills CNC Skills Hands – on Approach Robotics Skills System Structure Purdue Grant Solutions College of Technology/College of Engineering Continued Development of Purdue’s Technical Assistance Program (TAP) Certificate Program. Courses include: Continuous Improvement in Product Development Design of quality processes Minimizing the Environmental Impacts of Advanced Manufacturing Design and Implementation of an Integrated Digital Manufacturing Certificate Program.
