    Machine technology has surely taken all the manpower from the floor and put them into offices writing operating software.

    I wonder want the manpower swap is? Does it still take the same number of people to do the job except now the workers are behind cubicles?

    New tech is supposed to do the same job with less man power.
    If we still made all metal things with hammers and anvils there would be a huge backlog of orders. lol

    only one drawback...we are loosing some real tallent, the manual machinest.
    Sometimes even running CNC machines I wish we had manual guys running them.
    far better results with a well trained machinest running them

    I was a manual machinist before I learned to run CNC machines.

    The manual machinist will always have a demand. I seen some out here pop out parts faster then I could draw them let along program it. Great for low volume runs
