As a member-based consortium, NCMS leverages its network of members and partners to research, develop, demonstrate and transition innovative technologies more efficiently with less risk and at a lower cost than going it alone. NCMS connects industry, government and education to work together on technology development and engage in unique growth opportunities for their businesses.The MOU is necessary to establish cross-membership and facilitate a collaboration in manufacturing research. CCAM and NCMS have complementary skill sets and resources that, when combined, will deliver economic value to manufacturers.
