2020 Additive Manufacturing Workshop


You are invited to join government, industry, and academia/non-profit leaders to participate in the upcoming 2020 Additive Manufacturing Workshop, 23-24, June 2020 that will be held at Lockheed Martin Global Vision Center in Crystal City, VA.  This model workshop is a follow up to the Business Model Workshop held at the Lockheed Martin Global Vision Center, 18-19 June 2019.  The purpose of this workshop is to address five foundational aspects of additive manufacturing necessary for DoD’s wide adoption of this game-changing capability.

The workshop is being sponsored by DoD’s Joint Additive Manufacturing Working Group, America Makes Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance and Sustainment Advisory Group and the  Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance Operations (AMMO) Working Group. We are looking for government, industry and academia/non-profit to actively participate in the workshop.  Five working groups will be assembled to focus on key integral areas.  The teams will consist of key disciplines: Program Management, Legal, Engineering, Logistics (maintenance and supply), Enterprise IT, Cybersecurity, Training, Administration and Contracts. This event presents a unique opportunity for AM leaders and functional stakeholders to collaborate on key issues that pertain to leveraging additive manufacturing capabilities.

Registration for this event closes June 1, 2020.

Additive Manufacturing Working Groups

The Additive Manufacturing Business Model Workshops will feature these focus areas:

  • Addressing AM Cyber Challenges –  (1 subworking group)
    • The ability to securely connect and operate 3D printers is integral to taking advantage of the distributed manufacturing capability that additive manufacturing offers.  In this workshop track, participants will work to develop a common understanding of the DoD and industry cyber-physical security requirements for networking and machine operation with respect to the NIST risk management framework; and identify best practices to address known or common challenges to being able to connect machines to IT networks.
  • AM Data Management
    • The additive manufacturing community continues to evolve a common set of definitions and language to provide interconnected engineering data sharing capabilities, critical for streamlining the qualification and certification process for AM parts.  This track will continue to mature those standards and definitions, as well as review an experiment within the DoD to share pedigree materials and engineering data and brainstorm what a true connected digital thread might look like in the DoD and industry.
      • Standards and Data Dictionary (2 subworking group)
      • Common AM Database Experiment (CAMDEN) (3 subworking group)
  • Framing the DoD-level AM Guidebook – (4 subworking group)
    • This business practices working group will utilize newly formulated AM policies, leverage work from previous AM workshops, and the in-development AM Acquisition Guide, to develop a framework for a DoD AM Guidebook.  The guidebook will be a resource to assist with holistically implementing AM across the AM lifecycle to include DoD acquisition, technology development and application, engineering, and logistics.  The deliverable of this workshop is to complete a storyboard of what should be included in the guide.
  • Workforce Development for AM – (5 subworking group)
    • This track will identify new programs and models to develop and deploy AM training content in the defense manufacturing industry, addressing the need for training platforms and commonly accepted stackable credentials, and identify remaining gaps for targeted stakeholder groups.
  • AM Metrics – Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance – (6 subworking group)
    • In this track participants will review best practices for measuring and communicating the value of additive manufacturing, specifically to focus on developing a proposed common cost estimating approach to capture the financial impact of additive manufacturing to 1) sustainment and 2) new weapon systems.
  • Common AM Part Criticality Definition (7 subworking group)
  • Standard AM TDP (8 subworking group)
