The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences, the Ann Arbor-based cross-industry consortium for next-generation manufacturing strategies, announced the launch of Digital Manufacturing Report, a first-of-its-kind Web portal and information aggregator devoted to the manufacturing applications for high performance modeling and simulation, digital manufacturing solutions, and advanced manufacturing technologies for small and medium sized organizations.

In partnership with San Diego, Calif.-based Tabor Communications Inc. — publishers of HPCwire and HPC in the Cloud — Digital Manufacturing Report will provide the manufacturing industry with comprehensive news, resources, and information about developments taking place in the fast moving field of digital manufacturing, modeling and simulation.

“The inception of Digital Manufacturing Report is the fulfillment of a key commitment we made early on as part of our joint collaborative effort working with the NCMS,” said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications. “With the introduction of a communications portal dedicated to promoting the use of advanced computational technologies in manufacturing, we are filling a void that has been open for far too long. Digital Manufacturing Report will heighten awareness of the critical need for small-to-medium manufacturers to adopt high performance computing solutions that will enable them to compete effectively in the global marketplace, re-energizing local economies and creating new jobs.”

Digital Manufacturing Report will reach thousands of subscribers globally across the manufacturing, energy, oil and gas, government, academia, and high-tech industries. The broad readership consists of users, consumers, solutions providers, decision makers, and prospective adopters who need more information on how digital manufacturing can revolutionize their businesses.

“Digital manufacturing is a lot of things,” said Jon Riley, NCMS executive director of design and engineering programs. “But you can sum it up as the use of supercomputing applications to solve problems, build solutions, and predict outcomes. The era of digital manufacturing will be as significant a game changer as the assembly line was in the 20th Century, and Digital Manufacturing Report will be a one-stop information nexus devoted to the subject.”

Added Rick Jarman, NCMS CEO and president: “Today’s announcement represents a significant achievement for the NCMS, and our partnership with Tabor Communications. We believe the publication will have a profound and positive influence upon the manufacturing industry, in particular the hundreds of thousands of SMMs across North America. By providing a collaborative news and information resource in the form of Digital Manufacturing Report, we can help promote the adoption of advanced computing solutions to improve productivity, decrease the time to market, and increase return on investment, enabling the manufacturing industry to re-establish a competitive edge in the global economy.”

The NCMS is the largest collaborative R&D consortium in North America and is dedicated to driving innovation in commercial, defense, and robotics manufacturing. NCMS has 25 years of experience in the formation and management of complex, multi-partner collaborative R&D programs, and is backed by corporate members representing virtually every manufacturing sector.
