R&D Funds available for Digital Manufacturing Technologies in Six Technical Areas

-

The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute invites whitepapers to support R&D Projects on Digital Manufacturing Technologies in Six Technical Areas:

• Completing the Model-Based Definition (DMDII-15-11) – to demonstrate Model-Based Definition (MBD) as the key to gathering, organizing and managing product/process data within the digital thread. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to four awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 22.

• Technologies Enabling Supply Chain Visibility (DMDII-15-12) – to demonstrate technologies that can provide real-time, dynamic visibility into the status of key information to facilitate efficient response to rapidly changing conditions. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to four awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 8.

• Cyber Security for Intelligent Machines (DMDII-15-13) – to mature and demonstrate technologies that improve the security of digital manufacturing solutions. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to four awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 22.

• Hardware/Software Toolkit for Real-time Machine and Process Diagnostics, Monitoring and Self-Correction (DMDII-15-14) – to implement machine intelligence into manufacturing machines. It is also aimed at promoting the adoption of relevant standards for sensing systems, sensing system communications and integration into manufacturing machines and systems. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to four awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 8.

• Agile Manufacturing to Compensate for Production Variability (DMDII-15-15) – to demonstrate revolutionary new approaches to measuring the geometry and composition of manufactured components, and to use this data in other parts of the digital thread. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to four awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 8.

• Open Source Software Applications for Digital Manufacturing (DMDII-15-16) – to populate the DMC online community with open data and open software, and to demonstrate use cases that solve real world problems for manufacturing businesses. Approximately $2 million may be made available to support up to 20 awards. Whitepapers are due Oct 28.
