The Production Systems Group supports the missions of the Engineering Laboratory and the Intelligent Systems Division by conducting research and development in the areas of measurement methods, models, instrumentation, sensors, and data to improve scientific understanding and control of manufacturing processes, equipment, and workpiece properties.
Measurement Science for Additive Manufacturing—To develop and deploy measurement science that will enable rapid design-to-product transformation through advances in; material characterization; in-process process sensing, monitoring, and …
Real-Time Control of Additive Manufacturing Processes—Part quality in additive manufacturing (AM) is highly variable due inadequate dimensional tolerances, surface roughness, and defects, thereby limiting its broad acceptance. This variability could …
Qualification for Additive Manufacturing Materials, Processes, and Parts—Materials and processes used to produce critical components for defense, aerospace, and medical applications must first be formally qualified. Extensive empirical testing to fully qualify a …
Characterization of Additive Manufacturing Materials—Currently there is a lack of AM parts in high-performance applications, due to a lack of publicly available high-fidelity data that has associated metadata . Solving this problem is not trivial, …
