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)

Goal 2: Education

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)

Goal 3: Membership

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.

Goal 4: Brand

Our chapter is a source for manufacturing information in many industries including healthcare.

Goal 5: Lean & Effective

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.

Goal 6: Knowledge Delivery

We will deliver knowledge in ways that meet the needs of members and customers by demonstrating lean journeys and additive manufacturing of companies to help other companies improve themselves through our plant tour / technical meetings.
