Abstract:

MIT conducted a major study on U.S. manufacturing with emphasis on better harvesting of upstream innovations into downstream manufacturing and services. This study known as Production in the Innovation Economy PIE httpweb.mit.edupie gathered data about the strengths and weaknesses and prospects for U.S. manufacturing and its relationship to innovation. It released a major report in 2013. MIT proposed to add a standalone module to the study that addressed specifically the issues of U.S. shipbuilding and defense manufacturing, assessing several key legacy processes and activities for opportunities to optimize production.
