Abstract:

The Manufacturing Engineering Certification Institute MECI of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers SME, offers a peer recognition program for individuals involved within the many facets of manufacturing engineering and technology related career areas. The MECI certification program was developed in 1972 to provide manufacturing personnel with the means to document specific areas of expertise, to encourage continuing education, and to foster professional development. Currently there are over 11,500 actively certified individuals in the MECI program of which about 1,000 are added annually. In 1986, a new certification specialty in Ship Production will be added to those currently available to an individual applying for recognition as a Certified Manufacturing Engineer. This new area, developed under the direction of Professor Howard Bunch of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, and MECI, will be offered to all qualified applicants beginning with the December, 1986 examination cycle. The purpose of this session is to introduce you to the new ship production speciality within the SMEMECI certification program, and to answer any questions you may have.
