Companies that keep their research and manufacturing employees close together, where they can share information, might be more innovative than other businesses.
Manufacturing drives Innovation. A fact that has been lost in the off-shoring of whole industires just for the purposes of low cost labor. The good news is the Re-shoring of US manufacturing is finally on the road back HOME.

...Nationwide, New Hampshire has the sixth-highest business tax index, an indicator of how favorable its tax system is for businesses; the ninth-highest population over the age of 25 with a bachelor's degree or higher, at 33.4 percent; and a per-capita income of $45,787, good for ninth-best in the nation...

Imagine you are sipping a gin and tonic as you relax in a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner thousands of feet above an ocean and hours from the nearest airport. The epicenter of the ploy is the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing, a shiny, silver building that opened in September in a tract of piney woods in Prince George County north of U.S. 460 about 10 miles east of Petersburg.
A collaboration of University of VA, VA State University, VA Tech. and Commonwealth Center for Advanced Mfg.
Sometimes, PR moves end up having bigger-than-anticipated effects. Just look at auto manufacturing in the South. Today the only American-made Mac is the kind you buy under Golden Arches and eat. America's other well-known Mac, Apple's Mac computer, is manufactured in China (like all other Apple products). That's about to change. Apple announced last week that it will invest $100 million to make Macs (through third parties) in the U.S. This move makes strategic sense for Apple and is potentially important for the U.S. economy longer term....
With decades of manufacturing experience and over $80 million dollars invested in research and product development, ExOne has pioneered the evolution of nontraditional manufacturing. This investment has yielded a new generation of rapid production technology in the field of additive manufacturing as well as advanced micromachining processes. Our process solutions give manufacturers the freedom to produce objects that have virtually unlimited design complexity.
Introduction to technology: It’s cool said one student, and a pathway for a new generation of manufacturing employee. The curriculum is also offered to manufacturing companies interested in creating their own program.
SPOKANE, Wash., October 24, 2012 — Recently, SME's Spokane Chapter 248, the Machining & Material Removal Community and the Deburring & Deburring, Edge Finishing & Surface Conditioning Tech Group have come together to produce an educational Gemba Series of videos with real people on real factory floors talking about real manufacturing solutions.
Great videos for your classroom to see the exciting way parts are made in Advanced Manufacturing.

Manufacturing in the United States is expected to grow in 2013, according to a new report from the Institute for Supply Management.
ISM’s Semiannual Economic Forecast, released Tuesday, shows the nation’s purchasing and supply management executives expect manufacturing revenue to increase 4.6 percent and capital expenditures to increase 7.6 percent.
More than 60 percent of survey respondents expect revenues to be greater in 2013 than in 2012.
As 2012 wraps up, we face that annual task of sorting through all of the year's news and events, its innovations and improvements, failures and successes, rises and falls to piece together the real story of the year and of all of its driving trends, so we'll know what to expect going into the next Read More...

Jet engines, like people, come in many shapes and sizes.There are sleek and narrow engines called turbojets that generate enormous thrust. Used almost exclusively by the military, they can fly a fighter jet faster than twice the speed of sound, but they also burn a lot of fuel. Engines from another big group, called high-bypass turbofans, are bulkier, slower, but much more fuel efficient. Everybody knows these engines. They are the heavy lifters of commercial aviation that hang from the wings of most passenger and cargo aircraft. They use a large fan at the front of the engine that pulls the plane forward like a powerful propeller.
Here are some specific opportunities to improve our daily coaching efforts.
1. Coach method versus solution. When someone comes to you describing a problem, what are you doing besides listening? Most likely, you are thinking of the answer. Now that you have an answer and start to coach, you might try to steer, or “coach,” the other person toward his or her answer. Not only is it natural, it feels rewarding because the other person accepts your brilliant answer.....
Carnegie Mellon University in collaboration with Lehigh University will manage a new $1 million manufacturing and innovation development program to help foster a renaissance in Pennsylvania manufacturing globally.
Raising enrollment in science, technology, engineering, and math courses may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. This year a report issued by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, on which we serve, concluded that if the United States is to maintain its historic pre-eminence in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—and gain the social, economic, and national-security benefits that come with such pre-eminence, then we must produce approximately one million more workers in those fields over the next decade than we are on track now to turn out. At first glance, that may seem to be a daunting task—but it doesn't have to be......
Higher Education officials and Business leaders gathered for a forum today on how to increase the number of New Hampshire STEM graduates – that’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. But while it was Community Colleges and Universities talking about the issue today, the lack of interest in STEM is a problem at every level of the American education system.
Tuesday's STEM forum featured appearances by Governor Lynch, and governor-elect Maggie Hassan. But the real meat of the event came from business owners and education reform experts who implored the higher-Ed community to do more to produce more talented science grads.

...."DreamBox took a different approach and built an intelligent adaptive learning engine. The intelligent difference lies in the pedagogy. Wiggins and McTighe say it best in Schooling by Design: “An understanding is a learner realization about the power of an idea… Understandings cannot be given; they have to be engineered so that learners see for themselves the power of an idea for making sense of things” (p. 113). At DreamBox, our starting assumption is that students are brilliant. Their critical thinking skills are underestimated if we think understanding can be given through content delivery."
