Machining Standards


Knowledge Requirements

Want to validate a role?


The content of our standards is the result of hours of work from national Technical Work Groups and has been validated by over 100 subject matter experts in industry and education. Material from the classic Machining standards, the Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) standard, and the 5-Axis CNC Machining standard were combined and reconfigured to fit the state of industry today.

NIMS extends a special thank you to Autodesk, Inc. for their partnership and sponsorship in the development of the CAM portion of the standard, and to the Gene Haas Foundation through the ProjectMFG initiative for the sponsorship of the 5-Axis CNC Machining portion.
