Ensuring reliability and security of data feeds for Glanbia
Ensuring reliability and security of data feeds for Glanbia
Core to Glanbia’s manufacturing operations is the need to guarantee the reliability and security of data feeds from its in-plant manufacturing execution systems (MES) to its field force.

IIC Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) Testbed
Field engineers and service teams often lack data and digital insights needed to assess, troubleshoot, and determine work scope for the large industrial assets in performing corrective and preventative maintenance activities. QA engineers many times need to understand why a particular problem in the part is happening recurrently or why parts from suppliers don’t stack up well in the assemblies due to mismatch. The root cause is usually hidden in design, manufacturing processes, supply chain logistics or production planning. But without the right data and digital insights, it's hard to pinpoint.GOALTo collect information in the design, manufacturing, service, supply-chain setup and provide access to and intelligent analytics for industrial manufacturing and performance data, to identify the root cause easier. Such insights can improve not only service and owner/operator productivity, but also provide critical feedback to the design engineering and manufacturing operations teams for continuous improvement.

National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI)
National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI)
The National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) provides a manufacturing research infrastructure where U.S. industry and academia collaborate to solve industry-relevant problems. The NNMI is a network of Institutes for Manufacturing Innovation that each has a unique focus, but a common goal to create, showcase, and deploy new capabilities and new manufacturing processes.
Digital Manufacturing and Innovation Institute (DMDII)
Digital Manufacturing and Innovation Institute (DMDII)
The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute is a unique public-private partnership acting as a world-class, first-of-its-kind manufacturing hub. Based in Chicago, the Institute has the capabilities, innovative spirit and collaborative expertise to transform American manufacturing. Companies can participate on project teams that compete for funds from federal and corporate sources to implement innovative solutions to their manufacturing challenges. Manufacturers can also assess their company’s digital capabilities and benchmark yourself against similar manufacturers. Digital manufacturing and design is the ability to connect different parts of the manufacturing life-cycle through data, and to utilize that information to make smarter, more efficient business decisions. Our institute will increase economic development, generate greater innovation through competitive R&D programs, and expand educational opportunities in digital manufacturing. Just as digital technologies have reconstituted the entertainment, communications and financial sectors, digital technologies are now in the process of transforming the way parts, components and complete systems can be designed and manufactured.
Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC)
Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC)
SMLC is building the nation’s first Open Smart Manufacturing Platform for collaborative industrial-networked information applications through at-scale demonstrations. SMLC envisions a 21st century SM enterprise (from suppliers, OEMs, and companies to supply chains) that is fully integrated, knowledge-enabled, and model rich. Such visibility across the enterprise (internal and external) would radically improve the ability to inform decisions and drive action. The Open Smart Manufacturing Platform and Marketplace enables manufacturing companies of all sizes to gain easy, affordable access to modeling and analytical technologies that can be tailored to meet cross-industry business-case objectives without having to retrofit existing systems.The concept of an open architecture enables the ability to access and contribute to a marketplace of industrial applications, including commercial and open-source technologies. Manufacturers will have access to endless possibilities through connecting new and existing architectures, talent and solutions. Similarly, solution providers, software vendors and entrepreneurs will have access to a broader manufacturing community and will be given a huge opportunity to innovate further.

Manufacturing System Automation
Manufacturing System Automation
An automated manufacturing system is the total integration of software and machinery used to create a system that performs manufacturing processes autonomously through computer programming.Without automated manufacturing systems, factory output would be vastly reduced, production would be very time consuming, working conditions would be less safe and quality control would be extremely difficult. Employees would need to work twice as hard to achieve in a day what they can now achieve in an hour with automated industrial systems. 
Industrial Digital Thread
Industrial Digital Thread
The digital thread refers to the communication framework that allows a connected data flow and integrated view of the asset’s data throughout its lifecycle across traditionally siloed functional perspectives. The digital thread concept raises the bar for delivering “the right information to the right place at the right time.”The Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) testbed drives efficiency, speed, and flexibility through digitization and automation of manufacturing processes and procedures. It collects information in the design, manufacturing, service and supply-chain setup, and provides access to intelligent analytics for industrial manufacturing and performance data.The Digital Thread integrates design, engineering, manufacturing, and MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) systems, establishing a seamless flow of information. This type of integration employs data and analytics across the complete product life cycle, optimizing efficiency, from design to manufacturing, operations, and maintenance to service in a closed loop. 
Additive Manufacturing (AM) | 3D Printing
Additive Manufacturing (AM) | 3D Printing
Additive manufacturing (AM) is one use case for 3D printing technology. The other primary use case is rapid prototyping. Both use cases refer to the processes of synthesizing a three-dimensional object from successive layers of material. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced from a 3D model or other data source.Additive manufacturing is currently much less common than rapid prototyping due to the higher standards for quality and cost competitiveness. It is relatively expensive and time consumptive to produce a prototype using traditional manufacturing technologies. 3D printers can dramatically cut both the cost and time in many cases. And the quality of a prototype can generally be below that of a finished product. In contrast, traditional manufacturing technology is excellent at mass producing finished products. For this reason, additive manufacturing is currently used primarily to produce customized products, small batches of replacement components, and designs that are particularly challenging for traditional manufacturing processes.
