    10 ways cloud computing is revolutionizing manufacturing
    Forbes
    The best manufacturers visited this year all share a common attribute: they are obsessed with making themselves as easy as possible to work with from a supply chain, distribution and services standpoint. Many are evaluating cloud-based manufacturing applications including Enterprise Resource Planning and several have adopted cloud-based applications across their companies. With so much interest, there is much confusion as well.

    Can an idea from MIT save US manufacturing?
    The Boston Globe
    There are tens of thousands of known compounds in the physical world. Finding the right combination to create a new material, say a super-tough or ultra-light metal, can take years, if not decades, of hit-and-miss experimentation. Now, a project rooted at MIT aims to cut this time dramatically, and in doing so, accelerate the invention, development and production of new goods and technologies.

    Solar power helps keep manufacturing in NY
    The Journal News
    Solar power is creating jobs and helping the economy right here in New York. There used to be countless manufacturers like GAL Manufacturing across the state and now there are too few left. Manufacturers have left over the past few decades, and high costs, not the least of which are high energy costs, are one reason. Affordable solar is helping tackle that challenge head on and this helps to keep manufacturing in New York.

    A new day for US manufacturing
    The Baltimore Sun
    The experts predicted a rapidly diminishing role for American manufacturing. The rationale was convincing: America could not compete with cheap Chinese labor and widespread government subsidization of the Chinese economy. Our trade imbalance reflected the expert opinion: America's trade deficit with China in manufactured and agricultural products skyrocketed from $69 billion to $268 billion between 1999 and 2008. But lost among all the negativity was an irrefutable fact: American brains and entrepreneurial prowess could compete and win in the higher-technology space.
