Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Precision Production field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Precision Production majors need many skills, but most especially Operation and Control.

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, and Operation Monitoring are the three most important skills for people in the field.
