  1. Moving Past People, Planet, Profit
    January 13, 2023
    "Digitalization, [KC] Morris said, makes manufacturing more efficient. It allows designers to include more information about the component or assembly than does a paper drawing, and it provides greater connectivity to other aspects of the production process. Digitalization reduces waste, and as waste goes down, sustainability goes up."

  2. Researchers propose methods for additive manufacturing quality control
    June 17, 2021
    "Yang and a team of researchers from Penn State, University of Nebraska--Lincoln and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proposed the design, development and implementation of a new data-driven methodology for quality control in additive manufacturing."

  3. Researchers Adopt a New Perspective on Extended Reality
    June 1, 2021
    "'Functional realism should be the goal of any [XR] researcher,' [Bill Bernstein] declares. Simply showing a realistic image does not go as far in exploiting the potential of XR. Instead, portraying the location and function of aspects or entities in a scene—'a functional characteristic of the scene.'” 

  4. Immersive Reality More than a Mere Pop-Culture Construct
    February 1, 2021
    6G World
    "[Bill] Bernstein, who also chairs the internal Extended Reality (XR) Community of Interest program at NIST, reported how XR serves as umbrella term at NIST for Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). He conveyed similar sentiments to Moar’s regarding the need for harmonisation between standards, with XR factoring in as a manufacturing solution in many ways.
  5. Model-Based Definition in the Tiers
    January 25, 2021
    SME Media
    "I had the opportunity to interview one of the authors of this study, Allison Bernard Feeney, for my December article and the chance to ask her a question that is—or should be—foremost in the mind of any manufacturer contemplating a move to MBD. The December article covers more of the details of how and some of the whys. What is left is when?"
  6. Object Management Group Chairs Update Technology Standards
    February 10, 2021
    "...highlighted the changes since the initial submission during the last OMG meeting in September. The final two presentations included a broad overview of formal methods used to specify modeling languages by Elisa Kendall, and a presentation on the semantics of SysML v2 by Ed Seidewitz and Conrad Bock, both of where were intended to demystify the topic of semantics for the user community..."

  7. Reduce Cost, Increase Speed with Model-Based Definition
    November 19, 2020
    SME Media
    "'Adopting a model-based enterprise will, in the long run, make your company much more competitive,' said Allison Barnard Feeney, systems engineering group leader at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Md. For 30 years, her mission has been helping the nation’s manufacturing base create and adopt MBD, the digital twin, and the digital thread."

  8. A.I. For Smarter Factories – The World of Industrial Artificial Intelligence
    September 4, 2020
    Metrology News
    "As the digital age moves forward, it’s becoming impossible to avoid interacting with artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Computer assistants and AIs perform an ever-growing range of tasks that are broadly intended to improve our quality of life. This extends to industry as well." By Michael Sharp.

  9. Solving IoT supply chain communications problems
    January 6, 2020
    Food Engineering
    "Moving food safely and efficiently around the U.S. and the world requires that food supply chain partners exchange important and timely information in a usable and expedient manner. However, to make that happen requires that the community of stakeholders (including food processors, IoT sensor/device makers and operators in the food supply chain) needs to find a meaningful and feasible way of representing that data to assure it is communicated and interpreted as intended, said Nenad Ivezic"
