Why care about innovation in manufacturing?


U.S. manufacturing is importantConstitutes 11% of GDP Employs 12 million people Pays an average of $77,186 annually, including pay and benefitsEmploys 60% of engineers and scientists Performs two-thirds of all R&D in the nation, driving more innovation than any other sector

Accounts for ~30% of all energy consumption in the United States Sources: Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office, National Association of Manufacturers


Industry needs innovation to remain competitive~Joel Hans, Managing Editor, Manufacturing.net“There’s little doubt that, at the very least,

more manufacturers will be looking into open innovation in the next few years. The demand for faster product cycles will only get stronger, as will the need to make a product that’s both high quality and cheap. Even though open innovation is still in its infancy compared to many other business philosophies, it seems to have a great deal of potential, particularly in the way it connects disparate technologies for better solutions.”


Manufacturing is a source of innovation, and co-location with design provides synergies for innovationAdvanced manufacturing provides high wage jobsU.S.-based manufacturing is critical to national security

The U.S. government is focused on advanced manufacturing


Advanced manufacturing is a family of activities that depend on the use and coordination of information, automation,

computation, software, sensing, and networking, and/or make use of cutting-edge

materials and emerging capabilities enabled by the physical and

biological sciences


for example

nanotechnology, chemistry, and biology

. This involves both new ways to manufacture existing products, and especially the manufacture of new products emerging from new advanced technologies.

Manufacturing Example: Innovation Explored

Lehigh Valley Plastics is a plastics machining company


Plastic “stringers” on work centers

Air Products, Lehigh Valley, PA,

Icefly cryogenic coolant system


Negative IMPACT

1 shift/week lost to stoppages

Cooling fluid waste/handling

Machine and trip hazard

Positive IMPACT

33% more capacity ($2.5M)

$20K/year less expense

Safety hazard elimination


Manufacturing Example: Innovation Enabled


The U.S. government has many manufacturing programs
