Conferencia Avner-Ben-ner: Tasks and Skills in Additive versus Traditional Manufacturing

UPNA-INARNE, Pamplona.

Avner-Ben-ner (Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota)


  • “Tasks and Skills in Additive versus Traditional Manufacturing: A First Look at Evidence from Job Vacancies”
  • Lugar: Room: Sala Seminario. INARBE, edificio Jerónimo de Ayanz.

The paper provides the first analysis of differences in tasks and skills of core production employees – engineers, technicians and operators in additive manufacturing (3D printing) and conventional manufacturing. The analysis focuses on 777 plants that posted jobs in both additive and conventional manufacturing for core employees during the period January 2014-April 2018. We find that additive manufacturing jobs have more complex and interdependent tasks than conventional manufacturing, within the same plants. Additive manufacturing jobs require more cognitive and technical skills. These findings hold across the three occupations.
