nmi project AMWA


The work of the AMWA seeks to solve business problems through technical solutions. This frequently results in the creation of a technical specification. To create a specification, or family of specifications, projects are set up with input from both end users, industry suppliers and independent consultants. Current and past project areas are listed below.
