SME launches online engineering, manufacturing wiki

Knowledge Edge features thousands of technical papers, e-books and videos



DEARBORN, Mich.—After more than two years of planning, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has rolled out the first-ever knowledge-based online resource geared specifically toward manufacturing professionals.

Created in association with SME’s Tooling U, Knowledge Edge features 16,000 technical papers, more than 1,200 e-books and 700 videos in a web-based encyclopedia that makes access to peer-reviewed manufacturing know-how a click away.

“While (online) searches yield a wealth of information, there is little standard as to what’s posted and what can be trusted,” SME director of professional development Jeannine Kunz said in a statement.

“Knowledge Edge relies on SME members, longstanding industry professionals and SME’s trusted manufacturer customer base to provide a reliable source of manufacturing information online.”

To learn more about Knowledge Edge, log on to the Tooling U website and request a demo of the subscription-based service.
