Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII)

The DMDII is the nation’s flagship research institute for applying cutting-edge digital technologies to reduce the time and cost of manufacturing, strengthen the capabilities of the U.S. supply chain and reduce acquisition costs for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

DMDII develops and demonstrates digital manufacturing technologies, and deploys and commercializes these technologies across key manufacturing industries. The goal is to create product and manufacturing process definitions simultaneously. Design innovation is the ability to apply these technologies, tools and products to re-imagine the manufacturing process from end to end.
