MANHATTAN -- 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 allows us to expand our design and product verification services, and helps 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 because of its expertise with National Instruments products, as well as their mechanical design and fabrication services," said Russ Beatty, the company's engineering and product development manger. "AMI helped us apply new technology to an existing design to improve nondestructive 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."

The Advanced Manufacturing Institute is a part of the K-State College of Engineering, and is a Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation Center of Excellence that provides engineering and business services. More information on the institute is available online at
