We have come to grasp that our skill to outlive and develop as a state to a truly huge measure depends on our sci- tific development. furthermore, it isn't sufficient just to preserve abreast of the remainder of the area in medical issues. We 1 needs to preserve our management. President Harry Truman spoke these phrases in 1950, within the aftermath of global conflict II and in the middle of the chilly struggle. certainly, the clinical and engineering management of the U.S. and its allies within the 20th century performed key roles within the winning results of either global conflict II and the chilly struggle, sparing the realm the dual horrors of fascism and tota- tarian communism, and fueling the industrial prosperity that undefined. - day, because the usa and its allies once more locate themselves at battle, President Truman’s phrases ring as actual as they did a half-century in the past. The objective set out within the Truman management of conserving management in s- ence has remained the coverage of the U. S. govt to this present day. Dr. John Marburger, the Director of the place of work of technology and expertise (OSTP) within the government place of work of the President, made feedback to that impression in the course of 2 his affirmation hearings in October 2001. the U.S. wishes metrics for measuring its good fortune in assembly this target of conserving management in technological know-how and technology.

This has several implications for the design of NLBMM parts and systems. First, the general design of the parts may require design tools capable of multi-physics modeling. Second, the need to interface and/or integrate microscale parts with parts of a different scale may require multiscale modeling tools to predict system-level behavior. Both implications point to a need for a departure from traditional macroscale design models and simulation tools. Fabrication Fabrication processes are often scale dependent.

At subsequent meetings, the committed sponsors, WTEC, and the panel chair established the scope, time table, Richard E. DeVor and Kornel F. Ehmann 5 panelists, and logistics of the study. 1.

S. companies, three national labs and one university with active programs in micromanufacturing technology applications, development, and advanced research. S. activities as a starting point for the study, to solicit suggestions for potential sites to visit abroad, and to provide feedback on the scope of the study.

As such, little work has been done toward developing general theories and approaches that could be used to design NLBMM parts. Efforts in Europe, specifically in Germany, have been driven by university-company collaborations via the Fraunhofer Institutes and similar entities. As such, they are often initially focused upon a specific technology or product. Once the technology or product is proven successful, the knowledge gained during the design and engineering process is extended to create similar products via many lowrisk, but economically significant advances.
