Retooling Manufacturing by The National Academy


The Division of Protection, having recognized gaps within the communication and suggestions processes between design and manufacturing of materiel, requested that the National Analysis Council conduct a research to develop and outline a coherent framework for bridging these gaps via information administration, modeling, and simulation. This framework is meant to information funding choices in fundamental analysis to create higher modes and strategies of communication and collaboration between the varied teams concerned in bringing complicated merchandise via the design and testing course of and into manufacturing.

The focus of the committee’s effort was complicated methods composed of numerous discrete mechanical elements. Whereas the cost to the Committee on Bridging Design and Manufacturing was to focus on the analysis elements of design and manufacturing, the committee acknowledges that bridging the varied domains concerned would require substantial cultural and organizational modifications as properly.


The committee was charged to: x Develop a circulation diagram as an example dependencies and interactions of fabric information and course of fashions wanted to completely characterize digital manufacturing. This circulation diagram could embody databases and fashions to characterize materials properties; characterize processes; describe design instruments; describe simulation instruments; characterize life-cycle habits; describe how merchandise carry out in service; describe how a product interacts with its setting; and describe exterior constraints and aims.

x Display, via case research, generalized apply, or each, how the product design and realization cycle will be made extra environment friendly via this simulation course of. x Analyze what fundamental analysis and improvement on processes, databases, fashions, sensors, controls, and different instruments are most wanted to implement a technique for product realization. Determine important roadblocks within the entry to data, within the availability of data, within the understanding of course of, within the capacity to explain course of, and in different areas, together with gaps in data, that presently restrict the success of digital prototyping and manufacturing.


x Describe any instruments that presently exist and will be utilized to the difficulty right now. Illustrate how these fashions and databases may be examined for robustness and rigor. The committee (see Appendix A for members’ biographies) carried out two informationgathering workshops and obtained shows from the Division of Protection, the National Science Basis, the National Institute of Requirements and Expertise, the Division of  Power nationwide laboratories, the National Aeronautics and House Administration’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and different educational and industrial organizations.

The committee additionally carried out a website go to to the Detroit space to collect info on the automotive business’s greatest practices for closing the design-to-manufacturing hole. The committee obtained further shows at two subsequent conferences (see Appendix B). Through the course of its work, the committee drew info from previous National Analysis Council experiences, together with the next: Modeling and Simulation in Manufacturing and Protection Techniques Acquisition: Pathways to Success (2002).
