This is the executive summary of Making Value for America. The full report is also available to read, download, and purchase on our website.
Concerned about the challenges facing US manufacturing--and excited about the prospect of dramatic change in this sector--the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) undertook a study to identify best practices along the manufacturing value chain and to recommend public- and private-sector actions to make the United States an effective environment for value creation. The NAE was joined in supporting this study by Gordon E. Moore, Robert A. Pritzker and the Robert Pritzker Family Foundation, Jonathan J. Rubinstein, Edward Horton, and by a number of US companies--Boeing, Cummins, IBM, Qualcomm, Rockwell Collins, and Xerox.
In conducting the study, the NAE committee reviewed economic statistics, gathered extensive information from experts and published research, and sought input from nearly 100 research managers, directors of manufacturing operations, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and others. The committee's report, Making Value for America, explains its findings and the actions it recommends. This booklet summarizes those findings and recommendations.
