"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."

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."
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.'”

November 19, 2020
"'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."
A.I. For Smarter Factories – The World of Industrial Artificial Intelligence
September 4, 2020
"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.
Solving IoT supply chain communications problems
January 6, 2020
"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"
