The core of American manufacturing is the introduction of technological innovation into production

Most media believe that 3D printing technology is subverting the status quo of automobile manufacturing technology and changing the experience of consumers. In early 2015, when an electric car named 'Strati' was unveiled at the International Manufacturing Technology Exhibition in Chicago, USA, American creativity and American manufacturing once again attracted global attention, because 'Strati' is the world's first 3D printing vehicle. components to manufacture electric vehicles. The electric car, built by Arizona-based Local Motors, took just 44 hours to build. In 2013, the world's first 3D-printed car, the Urbee2, was born in the United States. It took more than 2,500 hours to manufacture this hybrid car, and most of its parts were 3D-printed. Urbee2 makes the global auto manufacturing industry restless. This can be seen as a microcosm of American manufacturing. Throughout the history of U.S. manufacturing, technological innovation has always played an engine role. After World War II, the third technological revolution not only helped the U.S. manufacturing industry reach its peak, but also brought the United States into a mature period of industrialization. To this day, the pursuit of innovation and the integration of production is still the secret of American manufacturing firmly ranking in the high-end segment of the world's manufacturing industry. In 2014, the White House released a report, Made in America: Entrepreneurship and Innovation in American Manufacturing. According to the report, although the manufacturing industry accounts for only 12% of the US GDP, 60% of the Ru0026D personnel in the US come from the manufacturing industry, and 75% of the private sector Ru0026D in the US comes from the manufacturing industry. The innovation rate is twice that of other industries. Since the 2008 financial crisis, the world's largest economy has been in recession. Revitalizing the manufacturing industry, especially relying on information technology, new energy, and new materials to develop advanced manufacturing, is one of the important measures taken by the Obama administration to promote economic recovery and expand employment in the United States. The U.S. government has invested heavily to build the “National Manufacturing Innovation Network” program, which includes the establishment of 15 high-tech manufacturing centers and manufacturing innovation institutes, such as the Youngstown 3D printing laboratory and training center in Ohio, the Luo The purpose is to improve the innovation system of the American manufacturing industry and build professional innovation research centers in different segments of the manufacturing industry. Several U.S. federal government agencies, such as the Department of Commerce and its affiliated National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Department of Defense, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, NASA, and the National Science Foundation, participate in the operation of the network . The research report 'Advanced Industries in the United States' released by the famous American think tank Brookings Institution in the first half of this year stated that advanced manufacturing is a huge economic anchor representing the US economy, and it led the recovery of US employment after the financial crisis. Most American media commented that investing in the construction of a high-tech manufacturing center will not only increase the employment rate in the United States, but also attract some of the factories of many American high-tech companies to relocate. Larry Cady, vice president of product marketing at IFIClaimsPatentServices, said in an interview with USA Today that in 2014, 19 American companies entered the top 50 of the world's most innovative companies. USA Today reported earlier this year that in 2014, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted a total of 300,678 patents. According to the ranking of the US Commercial Patent Database, the IT industry giant IBM has obtained 7,534 patents, making it the world's most innovative company in 2014. This is the 22nd time IBM has won this honor. However, IBM's earnings in 2014 were less than satisfactory, and its valuation fell 13.3% that year, but that did not stop IBM from investing in research and development. In fiscal year 2013, IBM spent more than $6.3 billion in Ru0026D, making it one of the world's largest Ru0026D spenders that year. Most industry insiders believe that technological innovation and industrial creativity are the DNA of American companies and have been rooted in the corporate culture of world-renowned companies. Cardi believes that the reason why these world's most innovative companies can maintain the vitality of technological innovation and industrial creativity is that their corporate culture and incentive mechanism encourage employees to engage in research and development. If a company establishes an incentive mechanism for patent Ru0026D and filing, employees will be enthusiastic about doing research and development and filing more patents. He believes that the corporate culture and incentives of Google and IBM have stimulated the willingness of employees to develop research and development. For example, Google once allowed engineers to choose one working day per week, that is, '20% free timeInnovation. Google's policy of incentivizing innovation led to innovative products such as Gmail, Google News and GTalk, and '20% free time' has thus become the most well-known part of Google's management philosophy.
