Manufacturing Research & Reports

Manufacturing Research & Reports | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

The Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST MEP) has a new website where users can find a collection of reports and studies on manufacturing policy and practice.

The site is intended to serve as a resource for the manufacturing community and to fuel vibrant discussion and debate about the future of manufacturing in the United States. The posting of these works does not necessarily imply that NIST MEP endorses the views they express.

“Manufacturing has been, is, and will be essential to our nation's competitiveness, in part because the sector drives and adapts to change in technology, trade and the workforce,” said NIST MEP’s Gary Yakimov. “A lot of organizations are putting out research relevant to manufacturers. We wanted to make it easy for the community to find by gathering it all in one place.”
