Research Background

Increases in efficiency by digital technologies reduce energy and materials usage and environmental footprint. Industrial manufacturing is responsible for 54% of the world's energy consumption and 20% of global CO2 emissions. The future of sustainable production requires that material systems, manufacturing processes, and design engineering are better connected, intelligent, and tailored to the application.

A promising solution to sustainability lies at the interfaces between material sciences, digital manufacturing technologies, and advanced engineering design methods. The scientific objective of D2M lab is to develop open manufacturing mechatronic systems, simulation and modeling frameworks, computer-aided expert systems, and software solutions for the multi-disciplinary optimization of Process – Structure – Property – Performance (PSPP) linkages in design to manufacturing engineering workflows.
