The Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC) is a non-profit organization of private business and local and federal public entities dedicated to promoting or developing advanced manufacturing technology. It has long worked with ASQ, previously known as the American Society for Quality or the American Society for Quality Control, on various projects related to manufacturing technology quality control. ASQ works with its public and private partners to promote quality, quality control, and the proper implementation of industry standards across a wide variety of manufacturing techniques.
“The Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition has its goals rooted in quality, which is helping companies perform more efficiently with higher quality outcomes,” ASQ CEO Paul Borawski said in a statement. “We are excited for the opportunity to share our resources with the SMLC, accentuating quality through the development and growth of the organization.”
