NIST MEP sets up 1-stop shop for manufacturing-related research and reports

October 23, 2013

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."

The new website offers reports and research organized by topic area, including: According to Yakimov, although the site is not comprehensive, suggestions for worthy reports that may have been overlooked may be sent as a link or an attachment along with a brief description to gyakimov@nist.gov. If the suggested work is appropriate, NIST MEP will include it on the website at http://www.nist.gov/mep/mepreports.cfm.
