Siemens PLM Software helps guide new Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute on quest to revitalize U.S. manufacturing

Siemens – U.S. President Barack Obama announced the launch of a new Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute, also referred to as the Digital Lab for Manufacturing. It will be a world-class, flagship manufacturing hub drawing together the capabilities, innovative thinking and collaboration needed to transform American manufacturing.

The winning bid for a Department of Defense grant to create the lab was led by UI Labs–a Chicago-based research and commercialization collaborative that brought together 40 industry partners, more than 30 academia, government and community partners, and more than 500 organizations to develop and support the project. The Digital Lab will be housed in Chicago with a network of manufacturing partner and research sites across the United States.

The lab is part of the Obama administration’s planned National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI), built to accelerate development and adoption of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. The network will encompass a series of regional hubs, all committed to finding ways to reinvigorate U.S. manufacturing, create new jobs, increase economic development and spur future innovation–to turn U.S. regions left behind by globalization into global centers of high-tech jobs.

Siemens PLM Software has been working closely with UI Labs to put together the winning proposal and will be one of six Tier One partners who will provide guidance and resources to UI Labs as the project moves forward. It is the only PLM software provider in this top tier. The other Tier One partners are Dow, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Procter & Gamble and Rolls-Royce. more> http://tinyurl.com/kmgques
