The Automation Federation, a U.S. trade group of associations engaged in manufacturing and process automation, is working with the Department of Labor to create something called an automation competency model.
The model will be a federal document that defines automation, as a formally recognized model for careers in the field. It will be used by secondary education, colleges, career counselors and human resources departments in the government and industry.
The Automation Federation is based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
