SWAP is designed to simplify the complex challenge of identifying the necessary skills and training programs related to any industry cluster or sector. By answering a few key questions
about your customized needs, SWAP organizes and analyzes labor market data to help assess education and employment prospects. Analysis can be done for any single or multiple Texas workforce
board area and for multiple time frames. Report outputs provide actionable information, including customized cluster staffing patterns, extensive occupational characteristics data, supply and demand
profiles, and skills gap analysis based on detailed work activities (DWA), to inform a wide range of training investment decisions.
