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