In the future, manufacturing will be planned out in the virtual world. How can we do this if we don’t even have models for the basic processes such as welding, drilling, and forging? Sewing, assembly, or distillation? Nope, we don’t even have models for those either! At least, not the types of models really needed for our high-tech world.
Manufacturers need models to improve operations, to protect the environment, to share information, and to compose them into systems. Using your models will let manufacturers simulate, improve, and optimize all sorts of processes.
Showcase your manufacturing research by entering the RAMP 2018 Challenge! Finalists will be invited to present their entries in a workshop at ASME MSEC 2018 in College Station, TX, on June 18-22.
