The U.S. Department of Commerce's (Washington, D.C.) centers offer a free analysis of what manufacturing problems you may have - be it coping with a changing environment, trying to decrease manufacturing costs or discovering ways to use new technology. But keep in mind that there is a charge for follow-up work. The centers have been established to help small- and medium-sized manufacturers increase their potential for success.

To identify your local center, contact Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Nation-al Institute of Standards and Technology (Gaithersburg, MD) at (800) 637-4634 or via its website at www.mep.nist.gov. A partial listing of centers can be found below.
