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.

Small Series Production
Small Series Production
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.It can be used to produce a first small series of the product in order to launch it on the market. Once the demand for the product is raising, investments in tooling for traditional manufacturing are made. This process is also called bridge manufacturing technique. For certain applications (e.g. small series), 3D printing is the cheaper and/or faster option than traditional manufacturing. This is the main reason, why 3D printing has been used for this application.
Industrial Digital Thread
Industrial Digital Thread
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.Beginning at design, the seamless digital integration of design systems into manufacturing, leveraging the model-based enterprise, helps to enable virtual manufacturing before even one physical part is created. Sensor enabled automation, manufacturing processes, procedures, and machine data will enable optimization in operations and supply chain.Once the manufacturing process is complete, the digital ‘birth certificate’ (as built-signature) can then be compared to the as-designed engineering intention. This provides the opportunity for powerful big data analytics to enable service teams and field engineers to have better awareness, insights, and practical actions to improve the servicing and maintenance of critical assets. In this way, the production process can be viewed holistically, allowing management teams to make decisions based on robust information and data about their production process.Overall, this operates as a straightforward and extensive mechanism to pinpoint issues at nearly any point in the production process. It can also be leveraged to help resolve those issues, as the IDT can serve as a template for high level decision making. Finally, it can be used to locate exactly where efficiency could be enhanced or costs could be cut.
Autonomous Manufacturing
Autonomous Manufacturing
It is noted that autonomous systems provide a new magnitude of flexibility and capability for complex manufacturing requirements. All resources are modeled as intelligent entities that interact with each other in a controlled environment. Each entity has an adaptive and intelligent controller allowing the entity to autonomously pursue multiple goals as both a consumer and a producer. Environment rules are established by local and global multiple-criteria decision systems to resolve conflicts between entities and to optimize their overall performance.
