Digital manufacturing is broadly understood as applying computer systems to product development, manufacturing processes, and supply chains supporting products and processes. Of late, the verb associated with this has come under scrutiny, and the stakeholders are beginning to distinguish between digitizing (current art) and digitalizing(proposed). This talk will first make the distinction between the two and build upon the hypothesis that digitalization of manufacturing is the new goal. Digitalization of manufacturing will be addressed in the context of product development and delivery, smart manufacturing, and infrastructure to support manufacturing and the product post-delivery. Data-driven models that are increasingly emerging as a tool to address the lack of formal models will be introduced, and problems in their use to digitalize manufacturing discussed.


B. Gurumoorthy is a Professor at the Indian Institute of Science in the Centre for Product Design and Manufacturing(CPDM) and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Presently he is also serving as the Chief Executive of the Society for Innovation and Development(SID), a Society established by IISc to serve as the outreach interface for the beneficial exploitation of the innovations and the human potential existing at the Indian Institute of Science. His research interests are in the areas of CAD, Product Information Modelling, Computational Metrology and, Product design and prototyping. He did his B.Tech at IIT Madras in 1982 followed by M.E. and Ph.D at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA in 1984 and 1987 respectively (all in Mechanical Engineering).
