Technical Papers

Sharing your experience and insights in a written technical paper helps archive manufacturing knowledge for use by practitioners and researchers. The SME archive contains more than 17,000 fully searchable research and case-study papers, which are available as free downloads to SME members and are distributed worldwide through databases and content licenses. Authoring a written technical paper is a personal point of pride and gains recognition for your organization’s technology advancements. Five (5) certification credits are available for authoring a published technical paper, with three (3) additional certification credits given for presenting a technical paper.
