In Touch with Industry: ICAF Industry Studies, Academic Year 1996: Advanced Manufacturing [open pdf - 987KB]
This study of advanced manufacturing validates two facts: (1) manufacturing is vital to U.S. economic prosperity and national security, and (2) manufacturing will inevitably migrate out of mature industrial nations. The United States can reconcile these two facts only through a clear vision and a concerted effort by industry, academia, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. government. The report explores the nature of this vision and recommends actions to support it.
