The project aims to forecast the size of the workforce required with offsite manufacturing skills, by quarter, by region, across the next 5-10 years.
Due to the continuously evolving nature of technology, the educational requirement to train the workforce continuously evolves too. The industry requires the ability to identify when the workforce requires technology-specific training, how large that trained workforce needs to be, and what technologies need to be trained.
- Define and characterise offsite manufacturing occupations.
- Model the supply and demand for offsite manufacturing labour.
- Forecast the size of the workforce required of offsite manufacturing occupations, by quarter, by region, across the next 5-10 years. This forecast will be made available through the Workforce Information Platform website (www.wip.org.nz).
Step 1 >
Develop a list of occupations that are directly and indirectly involved in offsite manufacturing. This will be developed with consultation from the Industry Assocation – Offsite NZ.
Step 2 >
Develop a model for the supply of offsite manufacturing labour by extensively researching the existing workforce. This work will also be done in consultation from Offsite NZ.
Step 3 >
Develop a model for the demand for offsite manufacturing labour by using project pipeline datasets currently being used for existing Workforce Information Platform forecasts.
Step 4 >
Ceate a forecast incorporating Steps 1-3 above and integrate this into the Workforce Information Platform website (www.wip.org.nz).
