This conference deals with commercial applications of precision manufacturing rather than research for its own sake. It is therefore relevant that we start by examining the pressures on industry. We live in a world of continuing change and this is reflect most forcibly in manufacturing industry where markets and the manufacturing is becoming more global, product lives shorter, and product variety ever greater.
