National Strategic Plan for Advanced Manufacturing

In October 2018, the White House released the quadrennial Strategy for American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing, which is based on a vision for American leadership in advanced manufacturing across industrial sectors to ensure national security and economic prosperity. 

To achieve this vision, the strategy defines three goals: 
1) Develop and Transition New Manufacturing Technologies
2) Educate, Train, and Connect the Manufacturing Workforce
3) Expand the Capabilities of the Domestic Manufacturing Supply Chain

The strategic plan was developed by the National Science and Technology Council, Subcommittee on Advanced Manufacturing, with significant input from industry, manufacturing associations, technical associations, other organizational stakeholders, and members of the public obtained through a Request for Information supplemented by numerous roundtable discussions hosted by NIST and different stakeholders across the country.
