Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Machine Tool Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Machine Tool Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Operation and Control. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Machine Tool Technology majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Repairing, and Equipment Maintenance.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Machine Tool Technology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Installation is very distinctive for majors, but the Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, and Critical Thinking are the three most important skills for people in the field.
