The National Network for Manufacturing Innovation
9 April 2015
Dean Bartles, Ph. D.
Challenge: US losing leadership in manufacturing
U.S. Trade Balance for Advanced Technology Products
0 -20 -40 -60 -80-100
US Trade BalanceAdvanced TechnologyProducts($ Billion)
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
PCAST: The independent basis of NNMI
Recommends Advanced Manufacturing
nitiative as national innovation policy
PCAST 2012Recommends Manufacturing Innovation Institutes to address key market failure
PCAST 2014Recommends strong, collaborative network of Manufacturing Innovation Institutes
President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
Recommends Preliminary Design for a National Network of Manufacturing Innovation
Extensive Public Engagement on NNMI
Cuyahoga Community College
National Academies Beckman Center
University of Colorado
U.S. Space and Rocket Center
All Other 10%
Economic Development 6%
Federal State & Local Gov’t 14%
Request for Information and five public workshops -
1,200 voices on NNMI compiled
Manufacturing Innovation Institute Design
Initial “Network” Proposed
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
“Sparking this network of innovation across the country will create jobs and will keep America leading in manufacturing…"
President Obama, March 9, 2012
Revitalize American Manufacturing & Innovation Act
Five Institutes Established$335M public funding has catalyzed over $480M from consortiaAt launch, 349 companies and universities active partners from all across the country
Flex. Hybrid Electronics
Four more under competition
February 2014: Digital Manufacturingand 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
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)
Technology IntegrationDevelopment of innovative methods and practices for supply chain integration
Small/Medium EnterprisesEngagement with small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises (SMEs).
Education, technical skills and
DMDII - A consortium of industry, academia and government
world-class companies including:
Top universities including:
Proven talent from numerous state, educational, and vocational institutions:
Small and Medium Sized Manufacturing Enterprises (SMEs)
seeking to improve competitiveness:
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
Utilization of high performance computing to model materials, products and processes to enable
design with manufacturing in
Integration of smart sensors and controls to enable equipment to automatically sense and understand current production environment in order to conduct “self-aware manufacturing.”
ADVANCED MANUFACTURING ENTERPRISE (AME)
Information systems integration throughout the product lifecycle.Digital links between design and fabrication.Smart factory and supply chain management.
TECHNOLOGY FOCUS AREAS
OPEN SOURCE PLATFORM
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.
CYBER PHYSICAL SECURITY

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.
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.
