Advanced Manufacturing

One of the most widely used definitions of advanced manufacturing involves the use of technology to improve products and/or processes.

The manufacturing process technologies described in definitions of advanced manufacturing include:

  •     Computer technologies (e.g., CAD, CAE, CAM)
  •     High Performance Computing (HPC) for modeling, simulation and analysis
  •     High Precision technologies
  •     Information technologies
  •     Advanced robotics and other intelligent production systems
  •     Automation
  •     Control systems to monitor processes
  •     Sustainable and green processes and technologies
  •     New industrial platform technologies (e.g., composite materials)
  •     Ability to custom manufacture
  •     Ability to manufacture high or low volume (scalability)
