How Smart are Your Manufacturing Processes?


Reading time ( words)

IPC has partnered with Auburn University to conduct a study on behalf of the Department of Defense (DoD) that can significantly help our nation’s manufacturing industries, and we would like your help. The Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Manufacturing Systems (ICAMS) at Auburn University is working to help manufacturers engage with technology to improve competitiveness and profitability.

This survey is Year 2 of a five-year study. The survey should not take more than 10 minutes of your time. We will not be asking for any sensitive information, and your name and your company’s name will not be associated with any information provided unless you give permission. Your insights will help us better understand several overarching industry issues. If you would like, we will provide you with the resulting publication at the conclusion of the study. 

We hope that you are willing to help with this project. If so, please begin the survey by clicking here

You may close the survey and return to finish it later if needed.

If you have questions, please contact the Auburn ICAMS team at icams@auburn.edu.

Ventec: Contextualizing the CHIPS Act

01/05/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson hears from Alun Morgan, Technology Ambassador at Ventec, and Mark Goodwin, Ventec’s COO, about the benefits and risks posed by new PCB-oriented legislation in the U.S. and Europe. Faced with a rapidly consolidating industry, especially in the face of mounting pressure from the Russia-fueled energy crisis, government intervention is a welcome prospect—as long as legislators are committed to addressing the full scope of the issue, including the supply chain’s migration to Asia. Ventec is hopeful that, having been called on to educate government officials on the challenges facing the industry, they will help spur future legislative changes that will protect and grow the industry’s interests.
