June 3, 2013. For several years, NCMS and other collaborative leaders have been advocating the use of advanced modeling and simulation tools in product design and manufacturing. These techniques allow innovators to leverage massive computing power and predictive simulations to optimize designs, workflows, and products.
November 13, 2012. The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) announced today that it has partnered with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) to establish the first innovation center in a national grid that will accelerate manufacturing in Michigan and across the country by providing easy access to digital modeling and simulation tools for businesses.
April 2, 2012. Cloud computing is on track to create approximately 14 million jobs globally from 2011 – 2015. And digital manufacturing is not exempt from this prosperity! At least that is the story being told. But is it true?
March 20 2012. Far be it from me to condemn another writer’s work, but honestly, ExtremeTech’s Sebastian Anthony just published an article that is bogglingly misdirected. The article is called What can You Do with A Supercomputer? He answers this way:
February 6, 2012. Jon Riley, Vice President of Digital Manufacturing was named one of HPCWire’s “People to Watch in 2012”. This group is comprised of an elite group of community leaders selected from academia, government, business and industry for their contributions.
February 6, 2012. NCMS is working with four member organizations – Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), TotalSim, Simafore and Nimbis Services – to develop a computation tool that will allow these niche designers and manufacturers unfamiliar to CFD, affordable access to the tools necessary to model airflow over a joint vehicle/trailer body. The idea is to help them to both reduce the overall weight and utilize novel geometries to increase aerodynamic efficiencies.
January 24, 2012. Manufacturing references from President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union Address:
January 4, 2012. The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences announced today that Jon Riley has been promoted to Vice President, Digital Manufacturing. Mr. Riley joined NCMS as Executive Director of Design and Engineering Programs in March 2009 to lead NCMS’ groundbreaking Digital Manufacturing Initiative
November 23, 2011. Many small to mid-size manufacturing companies do not use high performance computing (HPC) to create and test potential parts and products virtually because of cost concerns. But one firm that did make the investment in HPC developed a new product line — and subsequently doubled in size.
November 15, 2011. Jon Riley is a man with a mission. Which is why he was in Seattle this week at SC11 at a show seeming concerned more with the latest in high performance computing and esoteric computational problems like modeling the weather, making sense out of the GPU revolution, or cramming more cores into petaflop machines as opposed to the more mundane concerns associated with the world of manufacturing.
