The Manufacturing Demonstration Facility Workshop (held in Chicago, IL, on March 12, 2012, and simultaneously broadcast as a webinar) invited stakeholders to discuss key foundational aspects of planning a series of Manufacturing Demonstration Facilities (MDFs). MDFs will create a collaborative, shared infrastructure around targeted technical areas that will develop, use, and promote energy efficient, rapid, flexible manufacturing technologies. Work at the MDFs will target specific technical areas and will expedite broad dissemination of advanced manufacturing technologies–helping to restore U.S. leadership in manufacturing and to create new, high-paying jobs for Americans.
