Agree, Duane. Surface Mount Technology is ITAR certified and has military customers. Since they are "designing the labor out" of manufacturing products, they won't create a lot of new manufacturing jobs. But any products that can be made here rather than in China is a plus for the U.S. economy, right?

I think that a real key to competing with Chinese manufacturers is to take a look at what they can't easily do that customers still need. The logistics of over seas shipping can be mostly overcome with money, but not always. When an engineer is on such a tight schedule that they want to drop a kit off one morning and pick up a finished prototype the next morning, expensive air shipping isn't going to cut it. Some government contracts fall under ITAR (International Trafficking in Arms Regulations) and more or less has to be built in the U.S. I doubt that we'll ever see high volume consumer manufacturing back in this country, but there are still growth areas for American manufacturing.

Full disclosure: I am a native of Appleton, Wisconsin. My father worked for Kimberly-Clark for years.

Go Wisconsin, it's not often a dateline from Appleton appears in this publication. Nice jobs supplement to a lagging print (paper) industry.

This is a modest example of new tactics being employed by European and U.S. tech manufacturers seeking to compete with China and maybe even return some production back to the U.S.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
