​Government, industry, and academia/non-profit leaders are invited to participate in the upcoming 2020 Additive Manufacturing Workshop, 23-24, June 2020 that will be held at Lockheed Martin Global Vision Center in Crystal City, VA.  This model workshop is a follow up to the Business Model Workshop held at the Lockheed Martin Global Vision Center, 18-19 June 2019.  The purpose of this workshop is to address five foundational aspects of additive manufacturing necessary for DoD’s wide adoption of this game-changing capability.

The workshop is being sponsored by DoD’s Joint Additive Manufacturing Working Group, America Makes Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance and Sustainment Advisory Group and the  Additive Manufacturing for Maintenance Operations (AMMO) Working Group. We are looking for government, industry and academia/non-profit to actively participate in the workshop.  Five working groups will be assembled to focus on key integral areas.  The teams will consist of key disciplines: Program Management, Legal, Engineering, Logistics (maintenance and supply), Enterprise IT, Cybersecurity, Training, Administration and Contracts. This event presents a unique opportunity for AM leaders and functional stakeholders to collaborate on key issues that pertain to leveraging additive manufacturing capabilities. To find out more details and to register for the event go to:
