Help Small and Medium Manufacturing in the U.S.! Please participate in the survey below on adoption if new technologies.

SME Members:

In our effort to help manufacturers innovate, grow and prosper, SME is supporting an effort by Auburn University that will strengthen and advance our country’s industrial base. 

Auburn University was recently awarded a Department of Defense (DoD) contract to help accelerate the adoption of smart manufacturing, and we need your help. The Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Manufacturing Systems (ICAMS) at Auburn is conducting a survey on behalf of the DoD to identify what new skills, tools and investments are needed to help manufacturers better leverage smart manufacturing solutions. Whether your firm is producing for defense or commercial markets, domestic or global, advancing our country’s industrial base is in everyone’s interest.

The survey should take you less than 10 minutes to complete.  We hope that you will support the effort to advance our nation’s manufacturing by completing this survey: Auburn University ICAMS Survey.

Thank you!
