Publisher: NAS Press | 2012 | ISBN-13: 0309264480 | 49 pages | PDF | 5,1 MB

This issue focuses on two particular goals. First, - to examine not just manufacturing but the broad array of activities that are inherently associated with manufacturing, including innovation and design. Second, - to focus not just on making things but on making value, since value is the quality that will underlie high-paying jobs in America's future.
Rapidly advancing technologies in areas such as biomanufacturing, robotics, smart sensors, cloud-based computing, and nanotechnology have transformed not only the factory floor but also the way products are invented and designed, putting a premium on continual innovation and highly skilled workers. A shift in manufacturing toward smaller runs and custom-designed products is favoring agile and adaptable workplaces, business models, and employees, all of which have become a specialty in the United States.
