The Digital Manufacturing Grid Initiative is a national effort by NCMS to put manufacturing innovation on fast forward. It is a unique fusion of physical innovation centers and virtual collaborative space. It is the place where manufacturers are empowered with advanced tools and technology. The idea is that collaboration makes everything less risky and less costly, even adopting new manufacturing solutions.
For manufacturers who are looking to gain access to expertise of digital manufacturing tools, the Grid is designed to support the awareness, interaction and knowledge transfer of manufacturing virtualization. We do this through collaborative partnerships at the state, federal, industry and academic levels that maximize benefit and reduce risk and cost for all parties involved.
