The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), Ann Arbor, Mich., and the National Coalition for Advanced Manufacturing (NACFAM) entered a partnership to provide mutual access to key industry resources and information designed to give North America manufacturers a competitive edge by allowing them to work better, faster and smarter. They will host direct links to each other's member sections on their web sites, allowing instant access to research and development reports, publications and journals, discounted products and services, legislative news and cross-industry networking opportunities.
