ADAPT founding members Craig Brice of Lockheed Martin Space Systems and Bryce Meredig of Citrine Informatics were among the 40 leading expert participants in the TMS–MForesight workshop on Harnessing Materials Innovations to Support Next Generation Manufacturing Technologies in October 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Craig Brice also served on the workshop organizing committee.
The goal of the interactive, professionally facilitated workshop was to forecast and brainstorm opportunity areas and enabling technologies related to materials science and engineering innovations that are likely to impact the next wave of U.S. manufacturing. The ideas generated by this workshop are documented in Harnessing Materials Innovations to Support Next Generation Manufacturing Technologies, available for free download through TMS. In addition to presenting thought-provoking insights into the potential future of manufacturing innovation, this technical report outlines actionable pathways and tactics identified to reach that future. This project was organized by TMS, on behalf of MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight.
MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight is a federally-funded consortium focused on enhancing U.S. manufacturing competitiveness by providing insights to decision makers on emerging technology trends and related priorities to inform policy and investments in advanced manufacturing.
