This project's goals were to give the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership in cooperation with the National Institute of Standards and Technology a report that documents and assesses Enhanced Machine Controller technology (EMC). The project involved the surveying of current users and a market analysis to determine the feasibility of transferring the EMC technology from a federal laboratory to a small manufacturing enterprise. This study shows that EMC is a great asset to industry, but it is still in a developmental stage and is not yet suitable for transfer to small manufacturers.
