NIMS Issues New Suite of "Smart" Standards for Several Job Roles

April 27, 2023

NIMS has developed a suite of Smart Standards for job roles under the disciplines of Industry 4.0, Industrial Maintenance Technology, Dimensional Measurements, Additive Manufacturing, Machining, and Metalforming. The standards are part of NIMS’ Smart Training Solutions, a framework for modernizing training to keep up with the pace of emerging technologies.

“The Smart Standards framework,” says Montez King, executive director of NIMS, “is flexible and modular, and the standards can be dynamically updated as industries change. No longer is occupational training dictated by someone in government or a small group of industry people deciding what someone must do or know to be aligned to industry standards. We’ve standardized the duties themselves so that an employer can create customized roles and a training program based on the company’s actual workplace activities.” 

NIMS offers a free Interactive Standards Viewer, as well as a subscription version that allows employers and educational institutions to specifically customize roles in a matter of minutes with a Role Builder Module.
