  • Invitation to Participate in ASME Wiki Project - Unwritten Laws of Engineering

    Dear ASME Volunteer Leader,

    Today it seems that engineering knowledge changes so quickly in the rapidly changing world of technology.  Is there anything really timeless about our profession?  Surprisingly yes - as evidenced by a set of professional principles written some 75 years ago which remain relevant today.  In 1944 the ASME Mechanical Engineering magazine published three articles by W. J. King about what every engineer should know (yet is rarely taught at university).  It was reprinted as the Unwritten Laws of Engineering in 1994 and published as the Unwritten Laws of Engineering with Revisions and Additions in 2001.  We are embarking on an update of this publication and invite you to be a contributor.

    The objective of this “team-based” project is to refresh and expand an historic document for the 21st century, and to release it in 2020 - a year when multiple ASME technical divisions and sections are celebrating their centennial.

    The book contains three parts:

    • What every beginning engineer needs to know
    • What every engineering manager/leader needs to know
    • What every engineer needs to know about professional development (ethics, career)

    What is critically needed to make the publication relevant in the 21st century is more than an update of the three chapters, we need a fourth chapter on “What every engineer needs to know about teams, collaborations and systems engineering.”

    In the spirit of collaborative engineering today we invite everyone in our society to consider contributing to the update. We are using a new ASME Wiki tool to "crowdsource" the initiative - and invite you to be a part of updating the laws along with creating a new chapter on collaboration.

    All contributors will need to register to use the wiki tool and to complete a copyright release. We plan to recognize all contributions to the finished work in the updated publication.
    Please register here: https://bit.ly/2UNsa2p
    Once registered you will be able to access the main site http://www.asmewiki.com/login

    What wisdom have you discovered in your career which should be memorialized in our new Unwritten Laws of Engineering for the 21st Century?
    Please share this email with your individual communities. Please direct any queries to me at: asme.mike.molnar@gmail.com

    Thanks for your consideration and support of this effort.

  • The Third Annual David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are happy to announce the Third Annual David Dornfeld Manufacturing Vision Award and Blue Sky Competition. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the competition will be held during the 2019 SME North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC) and ASME Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC), June 10-14, 2019 in Erie, PA.

    The aim of this annual competition is to influence the future of manufacturing research and education in the United States through new visionary ideas of the future. Such visionary ideas are often described as “radical”, “outrageous”, “transformational”, “unconventional”, “convergent”, and “breakthrough”. Presentations should pose grand challenges to be addressed by pursuing the manufacturing research vision, describing the intersections between disparate disciplines necessary to advance that vision. Topical areas should extend beyond the scope of single investigator and show potential for transformative impact in areas of interest to federal agencies.

    It is likely that team efforts will be needed to formulate such ideas. Therefore, interdisciplinary collaborations are encouraged, including disciplines outside of engineering.

    Abstracts should be submitted by April 1, 2019, to Professor ZJ Pei at zjpei@tamu.edu. Each abstract should be up to one page in length, including the title. This one-page abstract should not include names of submitters and their affiliations. Such information should be included in the email.

    Attached please find the flyer, the past competition results, and the 2019 selection committee that is consisted of:

    • AFOSR: Sofi Bin-Salamon (Program Manager, Biophysics)
    • DARPA: Bradley Ringeisen (Deputy Director, Biological Technology Office)
    • DARPA: John A. Main (Program Manager, Defense Sciences Office)

  • Call for Symposium Proposals (MSEC 2019)

    Dear Colleagues

    The Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME and the North American Manufacturing Research Institution of SME are pleased to co-sponsor the 2019 International Manufacturing Science & Engineering Conference (MSEC) and the 47th North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC). The collocated conferences will be hosted by Pennsylvania State University, The Behrend College, on June 10-14, 2019, in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA.

    Proposals for technical symposia, including panel sessions, are being solicited for MSEC 2019. Those interested in organizing a technical symposium in their field of interest are urged to contact the relevant MED Technical Committee Chair (or the Program Chair and Co-Chair) for instructions on submitting a proposal. Each symposium is strongly encouraged to have an organizing team consisting of 2 to 3 members from academia, industry, and government labs as appropriate. Note that funds may be available to support high-profile researchers (who do not typically attend MSEC) to serve as symposium invited speakers. Furthermore, papers deemed as “journal-quality” by the symposium organizers, may also be considered for publication in the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering or the ASME Journal of Micro and Nano Manufacturing. Note that, in most cases, such papers go through an additional expedited review process, before being accepted for publication by the journals.
