Published: July 09, 2014
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)‰s Sustainable Manufacturing Program held a workshop on November 13-14, 2012, in Gaithersburg, MD. Dr. Shyam Sunder, Director of NIST‰s Engineering Laboratory, initiated the workshop proceedings. In his opening remarks, Dr. Sunder explained the critical role of manufacturing for the U.S economy and stressed the measurement science need for resource efficiency in manufacturing. The main purpose of the meeting was to present to the research community the Sustainable Manufacturing Program plan and structure, as well as to provide the opportunity for the team to become acquainted with each other‰s contributions and better coordinate research and developmental efforts. The research team consists of NIST research staff working in the Sustainable Manufacturing program and external research partners. Between 40 and 50 experts attended, brainstormed, and identified pertinent research objectives that need immediate attention to achieve the Sustainable Manufacturing Program‰s research goals.
