The MIT Developer Revolutionizing U.S. Factory Jobs - Somerville, MA Patch
As many Americans despair over disappearing factory jobs and fear being replaced by a machine, Natan Linder has set out to arm assembly-line workers with cutting-edge technology and help preserve the U.S. manufacturing market. He's launched Tulip, an app that connects every element of a production line to a data collection program where it can be analyzed so crews can smarten and streamline their operation. New Balance and Merck have signed on. A byproduct, Linder hopes, is attracting a qualified younger generation to help fill 3.5 million jobs the Manufacturing Institute, a Washington-based think tank, has predicted will become available over the next decade. Linder, who arrived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab from Israel in 2008, cofounded 3D printing company Formlabs in Somerville before launching Tulip, the result of almost a decade of research.

88 Acres: How Microsoft Quietly Built the City of the Future - Microsoft News Center
A small, covert team of engineers at Microsoft cast aside suggestions that the company spend US$60 million to turn its 500-acre headquarters into a smart campus to achieve energy savings and other efficiency gains. Instead, applying an “Internet of Things meets Big Data” approach, the team invented a data-driven software solution that is slashing the cost of operating the campus 125 buildings. The software, which is saving Microsoft millions of dollars, has been so successful that the company and its partners are now helping building managers across the world deploy the same solution. And with commercial buildings consuming an estimated 40 percent of the worlds total energy, the potential is huge.

American industry is on the move -
Since a trough in January 2010, the US has generated just over half a million new manufacturing jobs but the bounce mostly reflects the collapse during the recession. For an advanced economy to create manufacturing employment independently of a cyclical rebound is almost unheard of. Even as it boosted manufacturing as a share of output between 1993 and 2007, Sweden lost almost a 10th of its manufacturing jobs.
