NCDMM's mission is to promote the use of cost-effective manufacturing solutions by U.S.-based producers of Department of Defense (DoD) systems by assisting with the transition to state-of-the-art manufacturing and technology solutions. We work closely with all DoD organizations and suppliers, to identify opportunities where process improvements will lead to significant cost savings or removal of critical bottlenecks. Our in-house manufacturing experts, along with a vast network of Alliance Partners and Manufacturing Consortium, develop and transition to the shop floor improved manufacturing and machining technologies and methodologies. Since 2003, NCDMM projects have generated more than $500 million in cost savings or avoidance for the DoD and its supply base. NCDMM also manages America Makes - the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute.
