TMS Study Details How to Accelerate Development and Manufacture of Advanced Materials
Practical guidance on gaining a competitive edge by greatly accelerating the development and manufacture of advanced materials at significantly reduced costs is the focus of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME): Implementing ICME in the Aerospace, Automotive, and Maritime Industries—a groundbreaking study released by TMS at the 2nd World Congress on ICME in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The study is available for free download on the TMS website.
The new TMS report bridges the gap between theoretical discussion and real-world application of ICME by providing detailed, realistic frameworks for implementing ICME-Accelerated Product Development Programs within the next three years. Although developed with the needs of the automotive, aerospace, and maritime sectors in mind, the frameworks and recommendations are also highly portable to other industries.
The study was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (Office of Naval Research and Air Force Research Laboratory), the U.S. Department of Energy (Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy—Vehicle Technologies Office), and the U.S. National Science Foundation (Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation) under a grant to TMS.
