This 222 National Strategy for Advanced Manufacturing, developed by the SAM following extensive public outreach, is based on a vision for United States leadership in advanced manufacturing that will grow the economy, create quality jobs, enhance environmental sustainability, address climate change, strengthen supply chains, ensure national security, and improve healthcare. This vision will be achieved by developing and implementing advanced manufacturing technologies, growing the advanced manufacturing workforce, and building resilience into manufacturing supply chains. Strategic objectives are identified for each goal, along with national technical and program priorities and recommendations for the next four years.
I am wondering if anyone knows who maintains the Aviation Source Approval and Management Handbook? It looks like the Joint Aeronautical Commanders’ Group (JACG) drafted it, but I don't see where that group still exists or any government hosted sites that maintain the document.

DAU's Professor George Noyes is presenting a DAU Webcast on the new Manufacturing and Quality (M&Q) Body of Knowledge (BoK) published earlier this year. This webcast will be held on 8 April (Thursday) from 1300-1430 EDT. I am moderating this webcast. After George gives an overview of the M&Q BoK, he will take questions via chat. The session will be recorded, captioned, and posted on the DAU Webcasts page (https://www.dau.edu/dau-webcasts/p/home) a few days after the live session. This relates to Module 16.

As a new QAS, it can be daunting to find information in all of the FAR, DFARS, and other publications. I was anAir Force inspector in my military days and we went around to different bases and verified compliance. I didn't become an inspector until I had twenty years' worth of reading publications and regs, and I still needed a cheat sheet. Has anyone created a cheat sheet or have a method to help a new QAS find information quickly?

The Army’s capabilities development and acquisition enterprise is exploring an innovative organizational construct to integrate and synchronize processes across multiple stakeholders. The Army will leverage designated Cross-Functional Team (CFT) pilots to embrace horizontal and vertical integration and improve the quality and speed of materiel development activities.There will be 8 priority CFTs, each led by a Brigadier General. Each General Officer will report directly to the Under Secretary of the Army (USA) at the direction of the Secretary and Vice Chief of Staff of the Army.
