Abstract : Advanced manufacturing centers upon improving the performance of U.S. industry through the innovative application of technologies, processes and methods to product design and production. This broad movement has enabled the growth of the U.S. manufacturing sector in the face of increasing competition, and has emphasized the importance of manufacturing to the nation s prosperity and to the ability of the U.S. industrial base to provide for the nation s security. Innovations will continue to transform manufacturing in ways that will allow U.S. producers to compete effectively in the global marketplace amidst rapid technological change and other pressures. However, industry and government must work together to surmount challenges and unlock the full potential of U.S. manufacturing, continuously strengthening the nation s well-being in the new century.
