The global manufacturing ecosystem has evolved dramatically in recent decades, driven by forces of technology and globalization and steered by the pursuit of greater efficiencies at scale. The Strategy for American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing states that worldwide competition in manufacturing has been dominated in recent decades by the maturation, commoditization, and widespread application of computation in production equipment and logistics, effectively leveling the global technological playing field and placing a premium on low wages and incremental technical improvements.[1]Thenextgeneration of technological competition in manufacturing will be dictated by the use of computation to ensure the reliable translation of product designs to manufacturing plans;process controls that provide assurances that the execution of those plans will produce products that meet specifications;inventions of new materials, chemicals, devices, systems, processes, machines, and design and wor...
