Additive Manufacturing Wargames

You are invited to join government, industry, and academia/non-profit leaders to participate in the upcoming Additive Manufacturing Wargame, held 16 – 17 May, 2017,  that will be held at Lockheed Martin Vision Global Center in Crystal City, VA.  This business model wargame is a follow up to the initial business model wargame held at the Lockheed Martin Center for Innovation in 2016.  The purpose of this wargame is to address four business model aspects of additive manufacturing for sustainment and production consistent with public private partnership principals in parallel to additive manufacturing technical community efforts.

The wargame is being sponsored by America Makes Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance and Sustainment Advisory Group and Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance Operations (AMMO) Working Group. We are looking for government, industry and academia/non-profit to actively participate in the wargame.  Four business model integrated teams will be assigned to one of four business model options.  The teams will consist of key disciplines: Program Management, Legal, Engineering, Logistics (maintenance and supply), Enterprise IT and Contracts Administration. This event presents a unique opportunity for AM leaders and functional stakeholders to work through a simulated acquisition process to collaboratively develop and document business model alternatives.

Additive Manufacturing Wargame Scenario Summary 

This is the prequel to the original AM BM WG scenario that formed the basis of the 2016 AM BM WG.

The DoD issued a RFP to develop and acquire a light-weight reconnaissance drone capable of being deployed by a 2-person team in austere environments.  The timeline defined by DoD is aggressive.  DoD requires the awardee to produce a prototype within 6 months and the first production unit within a year after contract award.  Most of the performance capabilities required by DoD can be performed by commercially available systems, but some of the reconnaissance features will have to be developed jointly by the Gov’t/Industry team and some of the capabilities will be provided by the Gov’t team which cannot share the base technology with the drone manufacturer. The scenario will address deployed AM business models.
