Viewpoint: Bill Fetter, Hexagon Metrology

Bill Fetter, Director of Marketing and Communications for Hexagon Metrology discusses the problem of the lack of skilled metrologists.

 

The U.S. Department of Labor does not recognize metrology as a profession. Neither the word "quality" or "metrologist" appear in the Standard Occupational Classification System. With very few young people going into metrology, U.S. manufacturing will face a severe lack of measurement and inspection professionals in the very near future.
