Title: National Institute of Standards and Technology: Manufacturing Portal
Url: http://www.nist.gov/manufacturing-portal.cfm
Publisher: National Institute of Standards and Technology (U.S.)
Description: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a long history in the U.S. Government, funded in 1901 as the first federal physical science research laboratory. One of their emphases is on manufacturing. The areas covered on their website include green manufacturing, lean manufacturing (more efficient manufacturing), process improvement, and systems integration. Once visitors choose a subject area, they will have the choice to check out even more specific topics to investigate. There is also a "News and Events" section, and one news item that will thrill visitors is the "New Video Showcases NIST-Hosted Robotics Competitions in China," which highlights the best of the Mobile Microrobotics and Virtual Manufacturing Automation Competitions. There is also a "Latest Publications" section, some with only an abstract and some with full-text articles. The publication entitled "Co-X Panel Discussion" reveals that Co-X stands for robots with which humans will co-exist, and that is cocktail party fodder for sure.
