Focus Areas

The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute is developing solutions to manufacturing challenges through our partner projects across four key focus areas:

  • Design, Product Development, and Systems Engineering: Creating improved design tools and processes, integrating data across the manufacturing lifecycle, and developing automated manufacturing planning.
  • Future Factory: Enabling digital integration and control in the manufacturing environment, and implementing tools to increase flexibility throughout the production cycle.
  • Agile, Resilient Supply Chain: Facilitating access to digital information, supply chain visibility, and design collaboration.
  • Cybersecurity in Manufacturing: Designing and deploying assessment tools, and establishing a collaborative network for sharing best practices.
