  Implementing A New Manufacturing Vision: Challenges, Mechanisms, Partnerships and Lessons Learned

Location: Engineered Biosystems Building, Room 100

This seminar is a part of the Intellectural Property Seminar Series, sponsored by the Patent and Trademark Resource Center, Georgia Tech Library.

What will the future of manufacturing look like 15 years from now? How does manufacturing stay competitive in the global economy? Please join Dr. Ben Wang, Executive Director of the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute for a discusson on implementing a new manufacturing vision.

Developed countries realize that a robust economy must have a strong manufacturing base. The service industry alone cannot sustain a long-lasting, prosperous economy. Globally, policy makers are redefining their macro-economic policies, including advanced manufacturing such as the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (USA), Industry 4.0 (Germany), MIC2025 (China), Catapult (UK), to name a few, in order to stay competitive in the global marketplace.

With a renewed interest in manufacturing, we must first define the characteristics of the future of manufacturing. Manufacturing of the future will be built upon the following pillars: 1) advanced processes; 2) innovative materials; 3) disruptive business models of extended value chains; and 4) a skilled workforce. Manufacturing processes will no longer be limited to metal cutting or fabricating semiconductors; instead, nano-processing, bio-manufacturing and additive methods will increase in use. On the materials front, even though metals and alloys will continue to be a main material of choice, composites, nano-materials and bio-materials, including biological and stem cells, will be important as we move forward.

It’s important to note that the line between manufacturing and the service industry is blurring. Ten or fifteen years from now, it would be hard to tell which company is in manufacturing or which company is in the service industry. Advanced manufacturing-supported services will be the hallmark of manufacturing. There are many challenges going forward, among which workforce development ranks number one. In the U.S. alone, at least two million manufacturing jobs cannot be filled due to a lack of skilled graduates, from two-year technical colleges all the way to post-doctoral personnel.

Higher education institutions are adapting to the renewed interest in advanced manufacturing. The adjustments are not straightforward or easy. There are technical and cultural challenges. Dr. Ben Wang will share with faculty and students the challenges we will encounter, mechanisms we have already put in place, partnerships we have built, and lessons we have learned, as we march into the future of manufacturing.

RSVP by September 8 (Light lunch will be included).

Speaker's Bio:

Dr. Ben Wang is Executive Director of Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology. He holds the Gwaltney Chair in Manufacturing Systems in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, and is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering.

Dr. Wang serves as Vice-Chair on the National Materials and Manufacturing Board (NMMB). The NMMB is the principal forum at the U.S. National Academies for national issues related to innovative materials and advanced manufacturing, and has oversight responsibility for National Research Council activities in these technology areas. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineers, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering and a member of two Honor Societies: Tau Beta Pi and Alpha Pi Mu.

In addition to authoring or co-authoring 250 refereed journal papers and 150 conference articles, he is a co-author of three books. Creativity and innovation is central to Dr. Wang’s R&D endeavors. He has a portfolio of issued and applied-for patents that now exceeds 35.

He received a B.S. from Tunghai University (Taiwan) and M.S. and Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University, all in industrial engineering.

  Technology Licensing at GTRC

Location: Engineered Biosystems Building, Room 100

Are you an inventor or researcher? Have you ever wondered how to get your ideas protected, and how to commercialize your invention technology? As a part of the Intellectual Property Seminar Series, sponsored by the Georgia Tech Patent and Trademark Resource Center, Georgia Tech Library, this seminar features Dr. Terry Bray, Director of Technology Licensing, Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC) , focusing discussons on technology licensing at Georgia Tech. GTRC is the organization which owns and manages intellectual property (IP) created at Georgia Tech. GTRC provides guidance and services to support Georgia Tech's sponsored research and technology transfer efforts. This seminar will provide a brief overview of GTRC, its mission, and activities, as well as describing the steps and issues involved in managing IP and technology licensing.

Targeting Audience: Georgia Tech students, researchers, faculty and staff.

RSVP by Sept. 14 (Light lunch will be included).

  Introduction to R Studio
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

R is a free, open source statistical analysis software package that is commonly used in research environments for data analysis and visualization. In this hands-on workshop attendees will learn the basics of how to get started with R Studio, including working with sample data to perform introductory statistical analysis and basic data visualization. The session is geared towards those with minimal or no experience using the R software package although basic understanding of statistical concepts such as median, mean, and normality is recommended. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own research data sets and statistical challenges for peer-to-peer assistance at the end of the session. There is no cost for this workshop and all technology will be provided by the library. Seating is limited so advance registration is recommended.
