2 Challenge: US losing leadership in manufacturing ISSUE: Economy, Jobs, and future competitivenessWhen U.S. loses manufacturing base in advanced technology products, we lose ability to innovate on next generation of those productsU.S. Trade Balance for Advanced Technology Products+ 40+ 20-20-40-60-80-100US Trade BalanceAdvanced TechnologyProducts($ 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

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 technologyFocus on problems which neither industry, academia or government can solve on their ownEstablished 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 fabricationConnected machines, factories, and supply chainsTransparency into supplier factoriesData aggregation, analysis, and action across the product lifecycle
12 DMDII: Not just R&D, but skills, access and workforce Applied Research & Demo projects forReducing cost and risk of commercializing new technologySolving pre-competitive industrial problemsTechnology IntegrationDevelopment of innovative methods and practices for supply chain integrationSmall/Medium EnterprisesEngagement 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 challengesDigital Manufacturing Commons: Exchange product information and transmit detailed design information on a secure, neutral and IP- safe digital environmentWorkforce Training: Access specialized training to prepare current and future workforces for the latest manufacturing methods and technologies
15 TECHNOLOGY FOCUS AREAS 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 PLATFORMCYBER PHYSICAL SECURITYDIGITALMANUFACTURINGCOMMONSCYBERPHYSICALSECURITYAn 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.

18 DMDII GoalsFoster 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.
