AMI Now Part of Worldwide Industry Experts Program

(Manhattan, Kan. November 17, 2010) – The Advanced Manufacturing Institute at Kansas State University has been accepted into the National Instruments Alliance Partner Program.

The program is a worldwide network of consultants, system integrators, developers, channel partners and industry experts who collaborate with the program to provide complete, high-quality virtual instrumentation solutions to customers.

"Our membership in the National Instruments Alliance Partner Program will allow us to expand our design and product verification services, and help us simplify product development, increase productivity and reduce time to market for our customers," said Taylor Jones, chief engineer at the Advanced Manufacturing Institute.

"At AMI, our goal is to be a reliable and value-added engineering resource. We're constantly searching for ways to help our customers optimize product performance and reduce costs, and the Alliance Partner Program provides us new tools to do that," Jones said.

“AMI was instrumental in helping Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing Central bring a new product to Kansas with its expertise with National Instruments products as well as their mechanical design and fabrication services,” said Russ Beatty, Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing Central engineering and product development manger. “AMI helped us apply new technology to an existing design to improve non-destructive test methods. The professional staff at AMI is a valuable asset for businesses competing in the global market. AMI is our on-demand engineering resource.”
