Abstract:
Industry 4.0 – Emerging Technologies and Supply Chain Resiliency within the US Manufacturing Defense Industrial Base
“Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) continue to negatively impact Defense readiness levels. Following recent critical supply chain shocks, the severity of obsolescence is now one of critical importance across the DoD spectrum. While Additive Manufacturing (AM) holds promise to fix DMSMS issues, long-term solutions will require a broader approach that incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AM with other emerging technologies. Sustainment Technologies’ software platform transforms how commercial and government buyers discover, engage, and interact with the US manufacturing economy. It enables the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) via intelligent mapping of parts to their associated manufacturing processes and the application of unique search algorithms that help DoD rapidly identify new sources of supply. The platform incorporates encryption for technical data package (TDP) file sharing to build a more secure, resilient supply chain.”
