UEDA Summit 2012: Technology Acceleration, Job Creation & University Engagement: Partnering with MEP Centers for Mutual Benefit (Troppe, Folk & Jennings)

538 views

Published on

Manufacturing Extension Partnership Centers collaborate with universities for outreach to manufacturers, service delivery, and getting new technology into companies. As MEP Centers move aggressively to support companies in their efforts to innovate their products and processes, to sell to new customers and enter new markets, these partnerships are more important than ever. This session will describe several of these “Next Generation Strategies” and new initiatives for MEP and how MEP centers are working with universities to implement them. They present opportunities for university engagement in economic development and job creation, and deeper partnerships between MEP centers and universities.

UEDA Summit 2012: Technology Acceleration, Job Creation & University Engagement: Partnering with MEP Centers for Mutual Benefit (Troppe, Folk & Jennings)

  1. 1. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPTechnology Acceleration, JobCreation, and University Engagement:Partnering with MEP Centersfor Mutual BenefitOctober 23, 2012Mark Troppe, NIST MEP mtroppe@nist.govAlex Folk, NIST MEP alex.folk@nist.govPaul Jennings, Tennessee MEP paul.jennings@tennessee.edu
  2. 2. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPVISIONNIST MEP is a catalyst for strengthening American manufacturing –accelerating its ongoing transformation into a more efficient and powerfulengine of innovation driving economic growth and job creation.MISSIONTo act as a strategic advisor to promote business growth and connectmanufacturers to public and private resources essential for increasedcompetitiveness and profitability.October 23, 2012 UEDA Conference
  3. 3. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPThe NIST MEP Program in Short . .. Program started in 1988, with at least one center in all 50 states by 1996 59 centers with over 370 field locations System wide, Non-Federal staff is over 1,450 Contracting with over 2,190 third party service providers Partnership Model – Federal/State/Industry NIST MEP System budget ~ $300M 1/3 Federal, 2/3 State and Industry (fees for services) Program started because of “market failures” in terms of access to information, technical expertise and cost. Subsequent study in 2003 by NAPA reconfirmed the continued existence of these market failures. Emphasis on performance – program and center – measured based upon impact of center services on client firms. October 23, 2012 UEDA Conference
  4. 4. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPWhat NIST MEP Does Focus on meeting manufacturer’s short term needs, but in context of overall company strategy NIST MEP Center areas of common strength:  Engineering Services for products and processes  Growth Services – new or expanded market opportunities  Lean Manufacturing  Quality Systems  Environmental Services  Workforce Development Reach nearly 33,000 manufacturing firms and complete over 10,000 projects per year**Based on FY2009 NIST MEP Center reported performance data.

  7. 7. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIP Technology Acceleration Approach MEP is accelerating technology deployment and utilization by Technology based growth getting the needs of U.S. & competitive- manufacturers to Technology U.S. ness needs Manufacturers Sources and getting new technologies translated into real-world product concepts by:  Connecting manufacturers with solutions & opportunities  Providing development & commercialization assistance  Leveraging 3rd party partners Technologies available for commercialization from the nation’sresearch laboratories(universities, Federallabs, private sources UEDA Conference
  8. 8. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPSupplier Scouting Purpose: Enhance business opportunities for U.S. manufacturers by connecting their capabilities, capacities with supply needs of government agencies and OEMs Pilot Initiative Began 2009  Partners – VA/NavAir, DOE, DOT, NIST, DLA  Scouted over 150 items, identifying almost 300 capable and interested U.S. manufacturers for $20 million of an estimated $48 million total Buy America/n opportunities  Next Steps: Review and analyze pilot results and consider expanding and scaling up nationwide capacity and opportunity October 23, 2012 UEDA Conference
  9. 9. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIP Technology Scouting (TS) / Technology Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI)  Purpose: Help companies find and/or sell products based on new technologies  Technology Scouting - Identifies enabling technologies for specific target applications  Technology-Driven Market Intelligence - Analyzes technology-specific perspective of industry/adoption and market requirements  Initial Program Development began in 2008  Impacts / Data  NIST MEP Center Capability: 38 Centers  Next Steps: Combination of Train, Mentor and Deliver model is being implemented to fortify system capacity and business model for Centers, Partners and Industry.October 23rd , 2012 2012 October 23, UEDA Conference
  10. 10. MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIPLean Product Development Purpose: Lean Product Development provides a step-by-step methodology for integrating the powerful waste-eliminating tools of lean product development into any product development process.  Lean Product Development methods and principles target: - time to market, - portfolio management, - design and development resources, - new product cost challenges.  Began January 2007  135 Client projects  NIST MEP Center Capability: 38 Centers  50% reduction in launch schedules, dramatic improvements in gross margin and enhanced customer satisfaction. Next Steps: Combination of Train, Mentor and Deliver model is being implemented to fortify system capacity and business model for Centers, Partners and Industry. October 23, 2012 UEDA Conference
