  • Distribution of NSF Workshop on Adv Mfg for Smart Goods

    Dear MED Member,

    In 2015, a National Science Foundation workshop was held in Portland, Oregon to identify emerging research needs for companies producing smart goods, i.e., the “things” in the internet of things (IoT).  The final report is attached.

    Findings include that the promise of IoT depends upon the ability of companies outside of the traditional information technology supply chain to assimilate wireless sensing capabilities within their products opening opportunities to develop advanced manufacturing technologies for integrating electronics into smart goods.

    The workshop identified nine key knowledge gaps needed to address the common materials, design, manufacturing and educational challenges facing the emergence of an IoT industry.

  • German-US Research Interaction

    Dear ASME MED Member:

    From February 10-12, Manufacturing researchers from the U.S. and Germany held a workshop to investigate the potential for research interactions between these two countries. The final report of this workshop is attached. 

    Recognizing there are some cultural differences between the U.S. and Germany, especially with respect to academic culture, there is nonetheless significant similarity and opportunity for collaboration. The organizers of the workshop have made a number of recommendations for fostering such interactions, but it is important to note that there is no need to wait for new programs to develop; research interactions between German and American researchers can be supported through existing programs. 

    The workshop organizers therefore would like to encourage you to propose U.S.-German interactions in your next proposal.

    Best Regards,

    Steven Schmid

  • Call for Papers for a Special Issue on Innovations in Materials Forming Processes

    We are pleased to announce a special issue of the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering (JMSE) on Innovations in Materials Forming Processes.

    Material forming through plastic deformation is one of the most resource efficient methods in the manufacturing industry. After more than two centuries of industrialization, new technologies are still being developed with an ever increasing rate along with an increasing knowledge of materials behavior, computational modeling techniques, and new process for forming both metallic and non-metallic materials. These advances lead to the need for publishing a collection of research papers in the area of materials forming. Researchers in this field are invited to showcase their research to a large audience in a special issue of the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. Papers dealing with experimental and theoretical advances in materials forming, on the micro- and macro- length scales, are welcome. Original research papers on innovative processes for low volume and flexible production are especially encouraged.

    Details of this special issue can be found in the attachment.
