US NSF - Dear Colleague Letter: Cybermanufacturing Systems (nsf15061) - 0 views

  •  
    The second major report of the President's Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), Accelerating U.S. Advanced Manufacturing, provides high-level recommendations for U.S. advanced manufacturing strategies, with emphasis on three manufacturing technology areas (MTAs):

    Advanced sensing, controls and platforms for manufacturing;
    Visualization, information, and digital manufacturing; and
    Advanced materials manufacturing.
    Detailed information on the recommendations for each MTA can be found in Annexes 1 through 10 of the AMP's report. Also of note are reports from the European Commission1 and industry2,3, which provide descriptions of advances in manufacturing, including leveraging of emerging information technologies.

    Consistent with the AMP's report, the evolution of manufacturing technology has arguably been most importantly dependent on the application of increasingly powerful and low-cost computation in manufacturing enterprises. NSF researchers are, and have been, actively engaged in pursuing fundamental advances in design theory and translation; real-time sensing and perception; data capture, representation, and analytics; machine architectures and human interfaces; materials and process modeling; scheduling and control algorithms; fault detection, analysis, and correction; and coordination of decisions across distributed production facilities that have led to the globally-connected, low-cost, flexible and resilient supply chains, computer-integrated factories, and digital design systems of the modern world. There is a general consensus about the increasingly important role of powerful, low-cost computation in manufacturing.

  •  
    The NSF Engineering (ENG) Directorate has launched a multi-year
    initiative, the Professional Formation of Engineers, to create and
    support an innovative and inclusive engineering profession for the
    21^st Century. Professional Formation of Engineers (PFE) refers to
    the formal and informal processes and value systems by which people
    become engineers. It also includes the ethical responsibility of
    practicing engineers to sustain and grow the profession. The
    engineering profession must be responsive to national priorities,
    grand challenges, and dynamic workforce needs; it must be equally
    open and accessible to all.

    Engineering faculty possess both deep technical expertise in their
    engineering discipline and the primary responsibility for the
    process of professional formation of future engineers. As such,
    engineering faculty are in a unique position to help address
    critical challenges in engineering formation. The Professional
    Formation of Engineers: Research Initiation in Engineering Formation
    (PFE: RIEF) program enables engineering faculty who are renowned for
    teaching, mentoring, or leading educational reform efforts on their
    campus to initiate collaborations with colleagues in the social
    and/or learning sciences to address difficult, boundary-spanning
    problems in the professional formation of engineers.

National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) (nsf15519) - 0 views

  •  
    The competition for individual sites will be for consideration of large and small university-based user facilities, including those at minority-serving institutions, that are geographically distributed and with diverse and complementary capabilities to support current and anticipated future user needs across the broad spectrum of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology domains. The selected individual sites will have autonomy in their operation and management, but will be required to act in concert with a Coordinating Office that will be separately competed and chosen at a later stage. Some sites may choose to partner with facilities at regional or smaller institutions that would bring specific capabilities for users and benefits to student training. The overall collection of selected sites and their capabilities will provide users with cost-effective access both to the specialized tools, processes, and expertise to support complex multi-step fabrication at the nanoscale level for structures, materials, devices, and systems, as well as to the associated instrumentation for characterization, analysis, and probing at these dimensions. The program aims to make these capabilities broadly available to the nation's researchers in academe, industry, and government to help catalyze new discoveries in science and engineering and to stimulate technological innovation.
