Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently reported for the US to spur significant innovation and growth in advanced manufacturing, industry must rectify currently unmet needs for measurement science and “proof-of-concept” demonstrations of emerging technologies. Cutler discussed the conclusion by economic studies funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in AutomationMedia.com magazine.
“Gaps in the technology infrastructure—including the lack of reliable measurement and test methods, scientifically based standards, and other formal knowledge and tools—limit advanced manufacturing’s further development and adoption,” said NIST economist Gary Anderson, coordinator of the economic studies prepared by RTI International, an independent nonprofit research institute.
Using data collected through extensive interviews and surveys with researchers, developers, manufacturers and other stakeholders, each of the four studies identifies 5 to 10 critical technical barriers to the adoption of its specific manufacturing technology. The studies also estimate the impacts of eliminating those obstacles and define which needs should be met first to do so.
