The PrecisionPath Consortium for Large-Scale Manufacturing



SAVE THE DATE: January 16, 2020

The PrecisionPath Consortium is kicking off 2020 with a dual purpose! Our January meeting will cover the logistics of planning and executing a survey, and producing a 2020 State of the Industry report. The group will also tackle updating the Workforce/Education section of the PPC Technology Roadmap this year. Together, let’s chart a new path for our consortium. Please join us for the conference call at 2pm Eastern, January 16. For more information, email CMS Committee Chair Ron Hicks at or Dr. Ed Morse at


On October 1, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) hosted a webinar on the PrecisionPath Consortium and our Technology Roadmap. Smart Manufacturing Editor-in-chief Brett Brune interviewed Dr. Ed Morse in a follow up to an article on the PPC in the SME Aerospace 2019 yearbook.

You can listen to the SME-PPC Webinar on-demand if you register in SME’s resource center here:
