Advanced manufacturing

Résumé
Advanced manufacturing is the use of innovative technology to improve products or processes, with the relevant technology being described as advanced, innovative or cutting edge. Advanced manufacturing industries increasingly integrate new innovative technologies in both products and processes. The rate of technology adoption and the ability to use that technology to remain competitive and add value to define the advanced manufacturing sector. World class manufacturing (WCM) integrates the latest-generation machinery with process/work systems to facilitate manufacturing based business development governed around manufactured products only, duly based over a high accent on product substitution or new product development. Advanced manufacturing centers upon improving the performance of US industry through the innovative application of technologies, processes and methods to product design and production. A survey done in 2010 by White House defined advanced manufacturing and stated that:: "A concise definition of advanced manufacturing offered by some is manufacturing that entails the rapid transfer of science and technology (S&T) into manufacturing products and processes." (PCAST, April 2010.) Organizations practicing advanced manufacturing make products characterized as: Products with high levels of design Technologically complex Innovative Reliable, affordable, and available Newer, better, more exciting Products that solve a variety of problems Flexibility The manufacturing process technologies described in definitions of advanced manufacturing include: Computer technologies (e.g., CAD, CAE, CAM) (Paul Fowler, NACFAM, UK Manufacturing Advisory Service Southeast, C.B. Adams, St. Louis, OECD) High-Performance Computing (HPC) for modeling, simulation, and analysis (Council on Competitiveness) Rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing) High Precision technologies (Paul Fowler, NACFAM) Information technologies (Paul Fowler, NACFAM) Advanced robotics and other intelligent production systems (US Department of Labor, ETA, C.
