Government Agencies Technology Exchange in Manufacturing (GATE-M)



David C. Stieren


This report documents the activities of the Government Agencies Technology Exchange in Manufacturing (GATE-M) from February 2001 to January 2003. This is the period of time from the initial conception of GATE-M to the implementation of the GATE-M Charter. GATE-M is a joint, interagency activity involving participation from six federal agencies. Representatives of the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have served on the GATE-M Panel during 2001 and 2002 on behalf of the U.S. Department of Commerce, acting as both the initial Panel Chair and initial Panel Secretary. This document represents the views and perspectives of the NIST representatives to GATE-M. This publication was prepared by United States Government employees as part of their official duties and is, therefore, a work of the U.S. Government and not subject to copyright.
