Virtual Inspection of Advanced Manufacturing via Process-Scale Digital Twins

Brian Giera | 23-SI-003

Executive Summary

The project will accelerate inspection of advanced manufacturing components by leveraging process- and part-scale digital twins, which are rich models that enable virtual assessment of performance. The project will enhance mission agility by expediting part delivery with reduced uncertainty and linking design with performance in a manner extensible to other manufacturing approaches.
