Modern manufacturing needs trained administrators, engineers,and designers.
Even though Sweet Sweats exists under a central services umbrella, the need for internal administration remains essential.
- Office administration
- Hiring employees
- Physical plant maintenance
- Inventory control
- Legal issues
- Sales force
- Communicate with central services
Although the office administrator may not perform most of these services, a need to understand and be able to design and communicate the services with the office staff is a daily task. The best time to learn these skills is at the college level when time is available for study.
A connection for a project such as Sweet Sweats via a college with programs for apparel (and other manufacturing manufacturing types) means many other central services companies have a source for competent administrators. To this goal Sweet Sweats will utilize interns, create class projects, help make educational videos, and hire graduates.
www.ManufacturingVillage.com, the website for implementing manufacturing has a non-profit research group, www.ManufacturingVillage.org, to research and examine how central services and satellite companies run. By using the non-profit to raise research funds we can fund university research and training.
