NIST's team for generating a proposal for a mathematics-based manufacturing initiative should ascertain (1) whether NIST has a qualified professional who is interested in becoming an in-house champion for mathematics-based manufacturing, (2) whether NIST would establish a competence building project in mathematics-based manufacturing, (3) the pros and cons of using design and construction of buildings and structures, and (4) the feasibility and desirability of alerting entrepreneurs to possible support from NIST's Advanced Technology Program in developing precommercial mathematics-based manufacturing technologies.
