The SME Pittsburgh Chapter 2014 – 2015
The SME Pittsburgh Chapter acquires and distributes manufacturing knowledge among its members and the broader manufacturing community which provides a positive impact on the manufacturing community. Also our chapter provides ways to elevate manufacturing to improve our way of life.
Goal 1: Knowledge
We will be the premier manufacturing knowledge resource throughout the local manufacturing community through our plant tour / technical meetings.(Additive Manufacturing)
We will be known as advocates for careers in manufacturing and a leading resource for manufacturing education through sponsoring SME Gateway Academy and PLTW in school districts and help form SME student chapters.( Robert Morris University Manufacturing Engineering Degree Program)
We will actively engage people and companies in this community to add value for the member through our plant tour / technical meetings and advocate government help for manufacturing.
We will be both lean and effective. Our chapter found that the best way of providing an effective valuable program to enhance manufacturing is thru our plant tour / technical meetings.
