Network Agile Manufacturing (NAM) is a new manufacturing mode, which is adapted to the social development of 21st century. Manufacturing business based on NAM is characterized by virtual organization, accumulation innovation, interactive innovation, resource global deployment, data-process integrated management for Product Life Cycle (PLC). The implementation of NAM needs comprehensive technicians holding manufacturing, management, information technology. Realizing the importance of cultivating the qualified technicians, Tsinghua University in China is starting the project named Curriculum of NAM. An attempt has been made in this paper to review the main literature available on Curriculum of NAM with the objective to: (i) retrace manufacturing informatization progress, identify key strategy and techniques of NAM. Here, informatization means computerization to a great extend, (ii) study the fundamental technologies of impacting NAM, including PDM, ERP, and CSM, (iii) introduce the concept and framework of NAM, suggest some future research directions and (iv) summarize the basic curriculum of NAM by analyzing the keywords appearing in theses of Tsinghua University NAM’2001 symposium.
