  • 2nd David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition

    The second David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition, funded by the National Science Foundation, will be held during the 2018 North American Manufacturing Research Conference/Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (NAMRC/MSEC), June 18-22, 2018 in College Station, TX. 

    The aim of this competition is to seek visionary ideas, long-term challenges, and opportunities in research and education that are outside of the current mainstream of manufacturing research and education.  Presentations should be open-ended and beyond the research activities of the speakers. Such ideas are often described as “radical thinking”, “outrageous”, “transformational”, “nonconventional”, and “breakthrough”. An example of such ideas would be additive manufacturing proposed about 30 years ago. Examples outside manufacturing are Google, Amazon, and Uber. 

    CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - DUE March 31, 2018 

    In cooperation with NAMRC/MSEC, the competition organizers invite submissions of abstracts to the Blue Sky competition. Abstracts should be submitted by March 31, 2018 to the following website https://apps.ideal-logic.com/cms?key=F3T9-25VWY_K9KH-5PTF_fd4b4397. Abstract submissions to the competition can be up to one page in length, single-spaced using Times New Roman 12 point font with one-inch margins. 

    More information can be found in the attached flyer.

    People who are interested in submitting abstracts to the competition are strongly encouraged to talk to Professors Brian Paul (brian.paul@oregonstate.edu), Scott Smith (kssmith@uncc.edu), or Z.J. Pei (zjpei@tamu.edu) who will not be serving on the selection committee this year. It is the intent of the organizers to provide feedback and insight to abstract submitters in an effort to put forward the strongest ideas for advancing manufacturing research in the United States.

  • David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition

    The inaugural David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition, funded by the National Science Foundation, will be held during the 2017 North American Manufacturing Research Conference/Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (NAMRC/MSEC), June 4-8, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA.

    The desired outcome of this competition is to reach beyond research papers that present completed work, toward new ideas and visions for manufacturing research and education that can catalyze new directions within the manufacturing community.

    Presentations should be open-ended, causing the community to consider the "outrageous"; presenting new challenges in new application domains requiring new approaches that are likely to stimulate significant new interest. Presentations should reach beyond the research activities of the speaker, providing bold visions of the future of manufacturing, and the research and
    education needed to achieve the vision.

    CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - DUE April 15th, 2017

    In cooperation with NAMRC/MSEC, the competition organizers invite submissions of abstracts to a special "Blue Sky Ideas” track to be held on Tuesday, June 6. Abstracts should convey innovative manufacturing research topics and/or revolutionary approaches to manufacturing engineering education. The emphasis of this track will be on visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in research and education that are outside of the current mainstream of manufacturing education and research.

    Submissions will be judged on the extent to which they 1) expand the possibilities and horizons of the field; or 2) challenge existing assumptions prevalent in the field. Abstracts will be judged by a committee consisting of nine members from academia, government and industry covering
    a broad range of manufacturing.

    Abstracts should be submitted by April 15, 2017 to Professor Scott Smith at kssmith@uncc.edu. Abstract submissions to this track can be up to one page in length. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to make a presentation on Tuesday of conference week in Los Angeles, CA. Travel and lodging (up to 2 nights) as well as conference registration for all selected speakers will be covered by the competition. (Availability of travel funds is contingent upon NSF approval.)

    To encourage truly visionary concepts of research and education, the top presentation, as determined by the program committee, will receive the inaugural SME Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award to recognize outstanding vision and leadership within the manufacturing community.

    After the conference, SME will post links to abstracts and presentation slides, so that the ideas can be disseminated broadly to the manufacturing community. Publication of the abstracts and slides is required for selection.

    Questions can be directed to Professor Scott Smith (kssmith@uncc.edu), Professor Z.J. Pei (zjpei@tamu.edu) or Professor Brian Paul (brian.paul@oregonstate.edu).

  • Call for Abstracts - Gamechanging Ideas for Cost-Effective Low-Volume Manufacturing

    The ASME International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC) is seeking game-changing ideas for Cost-effective Low-Volume Manufacturing. The workshop is sponsored by MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight.  This Gamechangers Workshop will offer an opportunity for researchers and innovators to present manufacturing process innovations that enable cost-effective low-volume manufacturing in the U.S. MForesight is seeking innovations in hardware and software to enable entrepreneurs to transition from makers to low-volume manufacturers.

    Advances in 3D printing enabled individual inventors and entrepreneurs to make high-value personalized products in the quantities of one or tens. On the other hand, in traditional high-volume manufacturing of commodity products, the unit cost is very low since the initial investment in high cost dies/molds is amortized over hundreds of thousands or even millions of units. Between these two extremes, there are opportunities and challenges to manufacture products in low volumes, say between 1,000 and 10,000 units. Such volumes may be too large to “print” or “machine” one at a time and such quantities are too small to justify investment in expensive production tooling.

    Low-volume manufacturing, at small-lot sizes of 1,000-10,000 units of innovative and specialized products at economical pricing is needed in nearly every industry, from medical devices to defense to consumer products. One of the goals is to broaden capabilities and access to small volume manufacturing as widely as possible. Cost-competitive manufacturing at small-lot sizes is essential to increase the variety and value of what an individual or small team can create. The challenge for low-volume manufacturing remains in creating technologies that have a low enough initial investment and additional per unit cost that the overall cost/unit is competitive with mass production. Examples of potential technologies include but are not limited to:

    1. Technology for reconfigurable dies and molds (zero tooling cost)
    2. Technology for massively parallel additive manufacturing methods, where entire layers or large regions are formed at once, rather than point by point
    3. Technology to substantially lower die and mold production cost
    4. Automation tools for die and mold design
    5. Technology to enable fully automated setup of manufacturing equipment or production lines
    6. Reconfigurable manufacturing equipment (e.g., LEGO-like building blocks)
    7. Novel molding, casting, or forming technologies that excel at small-lot quantities
    8. Manufacturing tools and equipment that are substantially lower cost than traditional tools and equipment or substantially improve the quality of current desktop manufacturing tools.
    9. Novel low-cost approaches to computer vision and machine learning for manufacturing (especially integration of open source approaches)
    10. Low cost and scalable manufacturing technology for emerging areas (e.g. nano-manufacturing, flexible electronics or sensors, etc.)

     

    The structure of the half-day workshop will be highly interactive. Approximately eight researchers, chosen from the submitted abstracts, will be invited to each speak on their gamechanging idea for 10 minutes and then answer questions for 5 minutes. Additionally, some of those not chosen to speak will be invited to present their ideas through a poster located in the workshop space. Workshop attendees will be given the opportunity to review, comment on, and select the top candidate technologies, based on potential economic impact across multiple industry sectors, in separate breakout sessions followed by a general session. Presentations will be recorded and videos from the highest scoring innovations will be posted on the MForesight website. Workshops results will be published as a whitepaper available on the MForesight website.

     

    The highest scoring innovations may participate in follow-on activities with MForesight such as: 

    • Further dissemination of the idea to industry partners and funding agencies
    • Publish the idea as an extended blog post or op-ed
    • Investigate the impact of the idea on U.S. manufacturing competiveness
    • Potentially co-lead a dedicated workshop with subject matter experts

    MForesight is a federally funded advanced manufacturing consortium focused on accelerating technological innovation to enhance U.S. manufacturing competitiveness.  MForesight connects researchers and practitioners and harnesses their collective wisdom to forecast advanced manufacturing needs, R&D opportunities and emerging technologies.
      

    Abstract Submission

    Submit two-page abstracts for the Gamechangers Workshop at http://mforesight.org/AdvMfrTech by February 24, 2017. Abstracts should contain at least one effective graphic and address the following questions:

    • What is the technology? How is it a gamechanger relative to existing technologies?
    • If the technology were fully matured with 3-5 years of funded support, what would be the potential economic impact to the U.S.?
    • Once matured, what industry sectors (aerospace, automotive, semiconductor, etc.) does this technology positively impact?

     

    All abstracts submitted will be reviewed by a joint committee comprised of members from the ASME MED, SME/NAMRI, and the MForesight Leadership Council. Researchers will be informed if their idea was selected for presentation by March 8, 2017. Questions can be directed to Joe Tesar at joe@mforesight.org.

  • Announcing the Reusable Abstractions of Manufacturing Processes Challenge

    Dear Colleagues,

    This letter is to inform you of the NIST Reusable Abstractions of Manufacturing Processes Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to invite students, faculties, researchers, and manufacturers interested in submitting models of any manufacturing process and demonstrating application of the ASTM E3012-16 for characterizing Unit Manufacturing Processes (UMP) for information sharing and sustainability assessment. The goal is for these standardized models to be reused, extended, and modified for many applications including simulation and optimization. We envision a collection of the resultant models can be composed into system-level analysis that will have the potential to become great resources to facilitate and speed up models development that will benefit the manufacturing community. To reach a wider audience, we are asking you help spread the news to those who may be interested.

  • 2017 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop on April 3-4, 2017 in Portland, OR

    Sponsored by the NSF Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation, the 2017 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held April 3-4, 2017 in Portland, Oregon.  The workshop will be co-hosted by Oregon State University, Kansas State University, and Texas A&M University.  This workshop will cover the basics of CAREER proposal writing and review.  It will include presentations by NSF Program Officers and recent CAREER awardees, a mock panel review using awarded and declined CAREER proposals, and a feedback session where small groups will review and discuss the draft CAREER proposal project summaries that each participant has prepared.  Workshop participants are expected to read and review six CAREER proposals prior to the Workshop so that they can actively participate in mock panel reviews.  These mock review panels are designed as a realistic simulation of actual CAREER proposal review panels. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with current and previous NSF Program Officers. 

     

    Data from previous workshops suggest that the success rate of the participants is considerably higher than the overall NSF average.  Correspondingly, this workshop attracts far more applicants than we can admit (approximately 250 participants will be selected to attend this workshop), so early application is strongly recommended.  To provide sufficient time for interactions among participants and facilitators, mealtime activities will be an important activity on the agenda.  A workshop fee of $250 will be charged to help defray the cost of workshop meals and materials. 

     

    The application deadline is January 9, 2017. The application procedure and tentative agenda for the workshop can be found at:  http://www.ksu.edu/career.   Please note that every participant is required to submit a project summary of their CAREER proposal and an NSF style biosketch as part of the application package.

  • Call For Papers: ASME JMD Special Issue on Data-Driven Design

    Dear Colleagues,
    We are pleased to announce a special issue of the ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) on Data-Driven Design.
    With the arrival of Cyber-Physical Systems or Internet of Things (IoT) era, the massive human- and machine-generated data can create unprecedented challenges and at the same time unmatched opportunities in advancing the theory, methods, tools and practice of Data-Driven Design (D3) for products, systems and services. By exploiting such huge, versatile and highly contextualized through-life data, design engineers can harness their organization’s competitive edge by uncovering patterns, novel insights and knowledge for D3. The aim of this special issue is to bring together original and archival articles that present significant contributions in advancing the D3 field.
     
    Examples of D3 topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
    • D3 foundation and platform building
    • D3 theory and principles
    • D3 of engineering decisions
    • D3 analytics: algorithm advances
    • Big Data-driven Design with online reviews, and with user and system generated data
    • Big Data-driven Design with social computing, crowdsourcing and human-machine interaction
    • Machine learning-based model engineering for D3
    • Uncertainty issues in D3
    • Analytics of human behaviors for D3
    • D3 for integrated cyber-physical systems (IoT, sensor data, etc.)
    • D3 in prognostics and health management
    • D3 in engineering education
    Relevance to engineering design will be explicitly considered as a criterion in the review process.
     
    Submission Instructions:
    Please submit your paper to ASME at http://journaltool.asme.org/Content/index.cfm and note on the cover page that your paper is intended for the special issue on “Data-Driven Design”. Please also email the Editor, Dr. Shapour Azarm at editor@asmejmd.org (and cc: assistant@asmejmd.org) to alert them that your paper is intended for the special issue. Information about the Journal of Mechanical Design can be found at http://www.asmejmd.org/. Please note that a limit of 12 journal pages without ASME page fees will be observed.
     
    Publication Target Dates:
    • Submission of papers by: February 20, 2017
    • Initial review completed by: April 10, 2017
    • Publication of special issue: November 2017
    Papers received after February 20, 2017, may still be considered for the special issue if time and space permit. In certain circumstances, papers that are not ready for production in time for inclusion in the special issue may be considered for a regular issue of the journal.
