Abstract : In 1995 the Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing International (CAM-I) was awarded an Agile Manufacturing project to develop and validate Qualification Criteria for Agile Enterprises (QCAE). The QCAE project addressed the critical challenges of identifying, selecting, and qualifying suppliers. The leveraging of industrial and federal funds, combined with active industrial participation, established an open and cooperative environment for experience sharing and developmental work. This report builds upon understanding and knowledge gained from the observations, findings, and results of the QCAE project.
