The amount of time it takes for most of a worker’s occupational knowledge and skills to become obsolete has been declining because of the introduction of advanced manufacturing technology (AMT). Given the rate at which AMT is currently being introduced in manufacturing, the average worker’s old skills become obsolete and new skills are required within as little as five years.
Which of the following plans, if feasible, would allow a company to prepare most effectively for the rapid obsolescence of skills described above?
(A) The company will develop a program to offer selected employees the opportunity to receive training six years after they were originally hired.
(B) The company will increase its investment in AMT every year for a period of at least five years.
(C) The company will periodically survey its employees to determine how the introduction of AMT has affected them.
(D) Before the introduction of AMT, the company will institute an educational program to inform its employees of the probable consequences of the introduction of AMT.
(E) The company will ensure that it can offer its employees any training necessary for meeting their job requirements.

Before preparing its employees, the company has to see whether it has the requisite in house facilities / knowledge to train all employees. If not they need to either hire skilled employees from market esle upgrade training programs to support AMT.

I would go with E

E makes the most sense, that is the only way workers will be prepared for changes necessary in their skill set.

A. Providing training only to selected employees and only after their skills have already become
obsolete is not likely to be an effective response.
B. This plan only accelerates the problem and does not address the employees' skills.
C. Periodic surveys may provide information to employers butwill notbe enough to prevent
employees' skills from becoming obsolete.
D. Having knowledge of the consequences does not prevent those consequences; employees' skills
will still become obsolete.
E. Correct. This would ensure that all employees have the most current occupational knowledge
and skills needed for their jobs
