Faced with increasing competition from overseas manufacturers, the United States has witnessed a dramatic decline in its manufacturing sector in recent decades. Our goal is to provide U.S. factories with the tools, software, and expertise they need to build things more efficiently, less expensively, and more quickly, so they can win more business and bring jobs back to the United States.

The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) is a world-class, first-of-its-kind manufacturing hub headquartered in Chicago. As a unique public-private partnership, DMDII has the capabilities, innovative spirit, and collaborative expertise to transform American manufacturing by ushering in the digital revolution. It is a proud member of the Manufacturing USA network of Institutes.

DMDII’s 2018 Strategic Investment Plan has been published. Read the plan to learn more about our vision to increase U.S. manufacturing productivity by making “every part better than the last.”

If you are interested in learning more about DMDII and the benefits of membership – including access to workshops, networking events, and project opportunities; we host monthly informational sessions and tours of the UI LABS Innovation Center. Register for an upcoming session here.
