IPC has partnered with Auburn University to conduct a study on behalf of the Department of Defense (DoD) that can significantly help our nation’s manufacturing industries, and we would like your help. The Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Manufacturing Systems (ICAMS) at Auburn University is working to help manufacturers engage with technology to improve competitiveness and profitability.
This survey is Year 2 of a five-year study. The survey should not take more than 10 minutes of your time. We will not be asking for any sensitive information, and your name and your company’s name will not be associated with any information provided unless you give permission. Your insights will help us better understand several overarching industry issues. If you would like, we will provide you with the resulting publication at the conclusion of the study.
We hope that you are willing to help with this project. If so, please begin the survey by clicking here.
You may close the survey and return to finish it later if needed.
If you have questions, please contact the Auburn ICAMS team at email@example.com.

It’s Feb. 3, 2023—2/3/23—and now we know the results of yesterday’s Groundhog weather forecast straight from Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania. Punxsutawney Phil says six more weeks of winter. If you’re watching the ongoing ice storms blanketing much of the United States at present, that seems like a safe bet. Also a safe bet is that the most-read news this week is IPC APEX EXPO related. Additionally, this week IPC published its EMS and PCB numbers for December. All told, lots of industry news to read this week.
