March 13, 2014 | School
Assistant Professor of Architecture Anne Filson has been invited to present her firm's research at the Design for Manufacturing Summit. She will share insights on the powerful role architects have in leveraging digital fabrication tools and networked organizations for lean product development.
The Design for Manufacturing Summit brings together industrial designers, digital entrepreneurs and manufacturers to explore the opportunities in the digital manufacturing revolution. Technological and cultural change offers the promise of shortened lines between all parts in the product development lifecycle, making manufacturing leaner, greener, more competitive and more profitable. In panels and keynotes the DFM Summits cover topics like CAD/CAM, DFM/DFx, 3D printing, lean manufacturing, new materials, open source hardware and the burgeoning maker scene. The semi-annual Design for Manufacturing Summits are the first part of the broader Design for Manufacturing Forum, a Modified Ventures project.
