The National Science Foundation’s research center admits ESTECO as industrial member
We are proud to contribute with our optimization technology and knowledge, becoming part of the research efforts.
ESTECO, leading provider of numerical optimization solutions, earns membership to the Center for e-Design, a cooperative research center born under National Science Foundation initiative with contribution from seven universities, several industry organizations and government agencies. The Center is key partner of the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation (DMDI) initiative of the Government, being contributor to the third DMDI Institute (DMDII) announced by President Obama in his 2013 State of the Union address.
The Center for e-Design envisions a future where systems and products are developed with the full participation of all key stakeholders, including manufacturers, engineers, designers, and consumers.
The Center has identified five major thrust areas for research: 1. New Design Paradigms and Processes, 2. Visualization and Virtual Prototyping, 3. Enabling Information Infrastructure, 4. Design Optimization and 5. Design Education. As a member, ESTECO will contribute to most of the thrust areas with its core research competencies and technology assets in design optimization, web-based collaboration and engineering data analysis field.
We are proud to play a key role in this collaborative effort between academia, government and industry in the quest for a more competitive American Manufacturing.
