Everyone –

This month I want to talk about ChatGPT and its use in the workplace. The significance of this tool and its fast-evolving capabilities cannot be understated.  I use it constantly during the day – it will make you faster and more efficient at your day-to-day work, and quite frankly anyone who does not embrace it WILL get left behind in the workplace – much like those who did not embrace the Internet or the desktop PC when they first came out. In short, it will make you smarter!

I went ahead and asked ChatGPT to give me 10 bullet points on how ChatGPT in the workplace can help our customers – and here is the response:

ChatGPT can offer various benefits to workers in small manufacturing settings, including CNC mill and lathe operators, CAD professionals, IT personnel, salespeople, and inspection personnel. Here are ten ways ChatGPT can assist these roles:

  1. Process Optimization for CNC Operators: ChatGPT can help CNC mill and lathe operators by providing instant access to machining guidelines, troubleshooting tips, and optimization strategies for various materials and tools, enhancing productivity and reducing downtime.
  2. CAD Design Support: CAD professionals can use ChatGPT to quickly access design standards, suggestions for improving design efficiency, and troubleshooting design issues, facilitating faster and more efficient creation of complex models.
  3. IT and DoD Compliance Guidance: IT personnel working on Department of Defense (DoD) compliance can leverage ChatGPT for clarifications on compliance standards, cybersecurity practices, and updates on regulations, helping ensure the manufacturing processes meet stringent security requirements.
  4. Sales Support and Training: Salespeople can benefit from ChatGPT by getting instant information on product specifications, comparison with competitors, and tailored sales strategies based on historical data analysis, improving their pitch and customer service.
  5. Inspection Procedure Assistance: For inspection personnel using PC-DMIS or similar software, ChatGPT can offer quick access to programming tips, data interpretation guides, and troubleshooting advice, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of quality control processes.
  6. On-the-Job Training and Education: ChatGPT can provide workers with on-demand access to training materials, tutorials, and expert knowledge, enabling continuous learning and skill improvement without significant downtime.
  7. Enhanced Communication: Facilitates better communication among team members by providing language translation services, clarifying technical jargon, and suggesting effective communication strategies for clearer, more efficient team interactions.
  8. Maintenance and Troubleshooting: Offers instant troubleshooting advice and maintenance tips for machinery and software used in manufacturing processes, helping to reduce equipment downtime and maintain operational efficiency.
  9. Customization and Personalization: Can assist in customizing manufacturing processes or products by offering insights on customer preferences, market trends, and personalization techniques, allowing small manufacturers to better meet specific customer needs.
  10. Safety and Compliance Updates: Keeps workers informed about the latest safety protocols, regulatory changes, and industry standards, ensuring a safer workplace and helping to avoid costly violations.

By integrating ChatGPT into their workflows, small manufacturers can improve efficiency, enhance the skill set of their workforce, and stay competitive in a rapidly evolving industry.


The best way to dive in and start using ChatGPT in the workplace is just go to the website at and start exploring. The optional subscription version is $20/month and is very much worth it. You will also have access to an entire library or custom-built bots for specific industries and applications.  I use one called MelissaBOT that I created for our specific use and needs. I am sure you can imagine… 😊

Let me know if you have any questions!!
