The Advantech eManufacturing Lab is giving University of Cincinnati students hands-on experience with real-world manufacturing projects.
According to the press release, professor Jay Lee calls the use of the application a "collaboratory" concept - a marriage of the problems posed by industry and the intellectual environment of the university.

The laboratory has been in operation since August 2007.
