Survey: How to use upskilling, AI to improve manufacturing production results
A study of 500 global manufacturers shows that industry leaders believe technology can improve upskilling efforts and production outcomes. Other manufacturing topics in the study include production challenges, roadblocks to 2023 goals, sustainability efforts, workforce trends, and technology adoption.
- Understand data from an Augury survey that explains how upskilling can use technologies to improve manufacturing production. The resulting study also covers manufacturing production topics include challenges, roadblocks, sustainability, workforce, technology among others.

Technology adoption will have a positive impact on workforce upskilling efforts, according to 80% of the 500 responding to an Augury survey of manufacturers. That’s a much-needed change in the manufacturing industry according to the 33-page Augury study, “The State of Production Health, 2023,” which looks at how manufacturers are leveraging machine, process, and operational data.
How will technology adoption impact upskilling efforts?
The survey asked, “How will technology adoption impact upskilling efforts?” An eighth (12%) of respondents expect a significant positive impact and 68% expect a positive impact. Only 19% expected a neutral impact and just 1% expected technology to have a negative impact on upskilling efforts.
Augury said “technology is critical for bringing in new qualified talent and attracting the next generation of workers. Still, almost one fifth of respondents (19%) say that technology adoption will have no impact on upskilling their workforces, showing that there is still work to be done in proving technology’s worth in addressing the skills gaps.”
Another question in the survey identified knowledge transfer (33%), rising labor costs (32%) and need for reskilling (30%) as the top three workforce obstacles. Augury noted in the study: “As manufacturers work to reshape their staffing and upskilling approaches, they should be mindful of how technology adoption can help on several fronts, including empowering current employees, attracting new talent, filling skills gaps, and enabling new hybrid workflows.”
