Why is this skill important?

This skill competition involves teams of complementary skilled specialists working to design, manufacture, assemble and test new or improved equipment either as a one-off item or as the prototype for mass production.

Technicians skilled in project management, finance, organization, computer-aided design, programming, machining, welding, electronics, and fitting form teams to tackle the Manufacturing Team Challenge. Each team member requires the ability to think, work and contribute beyond the boundaries of individual skill in order to make the most of the team’s combined efforts.

Working in teams mirrors what we see today in industry and business. Plus, as a member of a team individuals have a unique opportunity not only to deepen their own skills but also to learn more about related skills.
