Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machinist Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machinist Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Programming. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machinist Technology majors need more than the average amount of Programming, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, Technology Design, Quality Control Analysis, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Installation, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Monitoring, Management of Material Resources, Active Learning, Complex Problem Solving, Instructing, Coordination, Learning Strategies, Time Management, Judgment and Decision Making, Critical Thinking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Management of Personnel Resources, Social Perceptiveness, Active Listening, Speaking, Persuasion, Negotiation, Science, Management of Financial Resources, and Service Orientation.
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 Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machinist 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 Programming is very distinctive for majors, but the Programming, Operation Monitoring, Monitoring, Active Learning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Writing, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Active Listening, Operation and Control, Quality Control Analysis, Speaking, Coordination, Operations Analysis, Time Management, Instructing, Troubleshooting, Learning Strategies, Equipment Selection, Social Perceptiveness, Equipment Maintenance, Management of Personnel Resources, Persuasion, Repairing, Technology Design, Negotiation, Management of Material Resources, Service Orientation, Science, Management of Financial Resources, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
