The number of jobs provided by the metalworking industries are bound to decrease during the next few years in France. This sector will nevertheless be faced with workforce replacement problems because large numbers of employees are due to retire shortly. To prepare for these changes, it has become necessary to assess the number of jobs which will have to be filled and the qualifications to which they correspond.
