Advanced Manufacturing Innovation

Advanced Manufacturing Innovation

Advanced manufacturing enables rapid transfer of science and technology into manufacturing products and processes. It is particularly pertinent for technologically complex products and commercialization of advanced materials such as those highlighted at TechConnect World. This symposium focuses on challenges and success stories in technology development and provides a forum which highlights exciting new approaches to solving manufacturing challenges that fall into the gap between R&D and available commercialized tools.

Safety and Innovation as Partners for Success in Advanced Manufacturing: Discussion Panel

As emerging and novel technologies, materials, and information are integrated into increasingly automated and networked manufacturing processes, the elements of effective health, safety, and environmental practice will need to evolve. The goals of this session are three-fold: 1) provide a forum for stakeholders to explore the changes advanced materials and manufacturing innovation bring to the workplace and the environment, 2) examine existing health and safety approaches that enable the advanced manufacturing ecosystem, and 3) identify challenges and opportunities for new safety paradigms. This session will incorporate perspectives from technology leaders, manufacturing operations experts, and occupational health and safety practitioners. This is also an opportunity to discuss and present your research on managing process hazards and exposures, life cycle assessment, and risk management, new models of occupational safety and health, and effective risk management practices.
