1 The National Network for Manufacturing Innovation
Dean Bartles, Ph. D. Executive Director 9 April 2015

2 Challenge: US losing leadership in manufacturing
ISSUE: Economy, Jobs, and future competitiveness When U.S. loses manufacturing base in advanced technology products, we lose ability to innovate on next generation of those products U.S. Trade Balance for Advanced Technology Products + 40 + 20 -20 -40 -60 -80 -100 US Trade Balance Advanced Technology Products ($ Billion) Starting in the beginning of this decade, for the first time in modern history, we have a negative trade balance in advanced manufactured products. In fact, as shown in the next slide, several technologies and product families are gone for good. These are products which are US strengths – products not offshored chasing lower labor costs. Labor is a small component of these products…n

3 PCAST: The independent basis of NNMI
President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology PCAST 2011 Recommends Advanced Manufacturing Initiative as national innovation policy PCAST 2012 Recommends Manufacturing Innovation Institutes to address key market failure PCAST 2013 Recommends Preliminary Design for a National Network of Manufacturing Innovation PCAST 2014 Recommends strong, collaborative network of Manufacturing Innovation Institutes

4 Extensive Public Engagement on NNMI
Request for Information and five public workshops - 1,200 voices on NNMI compiled All Other 10% Economic Development 6% Research & non-profits 8% Federal State & Local Gov’t 14% Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy New York Cuyahoga Community College Cleveland Ohio University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado National Academies Beckman Center Irvine California U.S. Space and Rocket Center Huntsville, Alabama

5 Manufacturing Innovation Institute Design

6 Initial “Network” Proposed
“Sparking this network of innovation across the country will create jobs and will keep America leading in manufacturing…" President Obama, March 9, 2012 President asks Congress to authorize initial network of up to 15 Manufacturing Innovation Institutes President directs Agencies to work together on Pilot Institute, while designing Institutes with input from Industry and Academia

7 Revitalize American Manufacturing & Innovation Act
Rep. Tom Reed R NY-23 Rep. Joe Kennedy D MA-4 Sen. Sherrod Brown D Ohio Sen. Roy Blunt R Missouri September 15, 2014 – Passed House 100 Cosponsors (51D, 49R) December 11, 2014 – Passed Senate 18 Cosponsors (10D, 7R, 1I) December 16, 2014 – Signed By President Obama Bipartisan Momentum Supporting NNMI Passage

8 Four more under competition
Progress as of March 2015 LIFT Light/Modern Metals Detroit, MI Five Institutes Established $335M public funding has catalyzed over $480M from consortia At launch, 349 companies and universities active partners from all across the country DMDII Digital Mfg. Chicago, IL America Makes Additive Mfg. Youngstown, OH Smart Power Electronics Raleigh, NC IACMI Adv. Composites Knoxville, TN Four more under competition Topic TBA Integrated Photonics Smart Mfg. Flex. Hybrid Electronics

9 February 2014: Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (“DMDII”)
A public-private partnership created to foster the development and implementation of digital manufacturing and design technology Focus on problems which neither industry, academia or government can solve on their own Established through a 5-year cooperative agreement with $70M in federal government funding and over $100M in matching funding from industry, academia, local government and community partners

10 What is “digital manufacturing”?
Digital Manufacturing is an integrated suite of tools that work with product definition data to support tool design, manufacturing process design, visualization, modeling and simulation, data analytics, and other analyses necessary to optimize the manufacturing process” – CIMData (modified)

11 Digital Manufacturing Vision
Digital link between design and fabrication Connected machines, factories, and supply chains Transparency into supplier factories Data aggregation, analysis, and action across the product lifecycle

12 DMDII: Not just R&D, but skills, access and workforce
Applied Research & Demo projects for Reducing cost and risk of commercializing new technology Solving pre-competitive industrial problems Technology Integration Development of innovative methods and practices for supply chain integration Small/Medium Enterprises Engagement with small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises (SMEs). Education, technical skills and workforce development

13 DMDII - A consortium of industry, academia and government
A partnership of world-class companies including: Top universities including: Proven talent from numerous state, educational, and vocational institutions: Hundreds of Small and Medium Sized Manufacturing Enterprises (SMEs) seeking to improve competitiveness:

14 What is the value proposition for members?
Applied R&D: Leverage significant government, industry, and academic investments to implement innovative solutions to member challenges Digital Manufacturing Commons: Exchange product information and transmit detailed design information on a secure, neutral and IP- safe digital environment Workforce Training: Access specialized training to prepare current and future workforces for the latest manufacturing methods and technologies

ADVANCED MANUFACTURING ENTERPRISE (AME) INTELLIGENT MACHINING (IM) ADVANCED ANALYSIS (AA) Information systems integration throughout the product lifecycle. Digital links between design and fabrication. Smart factory and supply chain management. Integration of smart sensors and controls to enable equipment to automatically sense and understand current production environment in order to conduct “self-aware manufacturing.” Utilization of high performance computing to model materials, products and processes to enable “design with manufacturing in mind.” OPEN SOURCE PLATFORM CYBER PHYSICAL SECURITY DIGITAL MANUFACTURING COMMONS CYBER PHYSICAL SECURITY An open source software platform that enables data aggregation, analysis, and action. Meet industry and national needs for security, trust, and IP protection within the manufacturing environment.

16 Collaboration & Training Center
Focus on inspiring, educating and advancing digital manufacturing and design Digital manufacturing lab, instructional and meeting space as well as traditional office 94k sq ft buildout: 22k sq ft collaboration space 24k sq ft manufacturing lab 20k sq ft office space 28k sq ft future expansion 10-year lease signed on 2 Jun 2014 Ground breaking on 30 Oct 2014 Renovations started in mid-Nov Target Move In Date: April 2015

18 DMDII Goals Foster and enable collaborative investment in pre-competitive research and development for digital manufacturing technology and create a virtual collaboration space where OEM’s and multiple suppliers/partners can simultaneously explore optimization of product design as well as the entire manufacturing and supply chain process for a given product. Facilitate the transition and insertion of digital manufacturing technology into US industrial manufacturing base (large and small). Create a national repository of machining data obtained from tens of thousands of machine tools from thousands of manufacturers that can be studied, trended, and analyzed with the goal of developing open source applications that manufacturers can use to optimize machining processes.

19 DMDII Goals (continued)
Develop a system that will allow product designers to explore various “trades” when selecting materials and design features when new products are being designed and simultaneously be able to see the impact each decision has on the cost of producing the product, impact on time to market, energy consumption in making the product, etc., etc. Assemble and integrate workforce development initiatives to prepare the future manufacturing work force for digital manufacturing technology and become the nationally recognized center where companies can send employees to receive the skills training necessary to be successful in the digital manufacturing workforce of tomorrow. Establish a digital online commons for manufacturers to use as a marketplace, learn about digital manufacturing, exchange detailed product design information, access the latest innovative digital capabilities and collaborate on design development – all on a secure, neutral and IP-safe environment. Develop 100 “App’s” in the first five years that can be offered to manufacturers of all sizes for a nominal price of $10 or less that will allow them to improve the efficiency of their manufacturing and/or supply chain operations.
