This resource contains two reports that analyze several of Michigan's labor market measures in the energy and manufacturing industries. These measures include employment concentration, trends, forecasts, key occupations, education program completers, and workforce demographics. These reports are designed to be an additional tool to assist in the implementation of the Michigan Industry Cluster Approach (MICA). MICA focuses on aligning efforts "“ initiatives, programs, and funding "“ around priority clusters for a demand-driven workforce system. A key activity of MICA is the convening of groups of employers to identify and develop solutions to address workforce needs. The findings within these reports are intended to provide a road map that leads to stronger partnerships and a more effective workforce development system.

Aluminum Vehicle Structure - Manufacturing and Lifecycle Cost Analysis

In this report funded by The Aluminum Associationand performed by IBIS Associates, the consumer's vehicle lifecycle cost for conventional gas, diesel, alternative fuel, and hybrid vehicles are compared using lightweight aluminum instead of steel. Since alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles are put at a cost disadvantage due to lower production, all studies were conducted with projected cost as if these vehicles were mass produced. Some factors affecting lifecycle cost are miles per gallon, materials, components, initial price, and maintenance. It's concluded that using aluminum in place of steel will lower the overall lifecycle price of all types of vehicles. However, in the current market the overall lifecycle cost of a conventional gas vehicle will still be less expensive than a hybrid vehicle despite the higher miles per gallon of the hybrid. IBIS has conducted studies for OEM, Tier 1, and material suppliers on material economics, manufacturing, operation, and disposal/recycle costs (slide4).
