It took more than two years of planning, but 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, the new Knowledge Edge subscription service 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.”
