Participants   In the Midwest region there is a significant population of leading U.S. healthcare organizations, both public and private, who are increasingly concerned with the effective management of healthcare information. These organizations deal with increasingly complex data management problems that arise in genetic and proteomic research where scientific investigation generates massive amounts of data that must be stored and analyzed, in molecular biology and diagnostic imaging where a single patient study can produce terabytes of data, and in hospital and clinical practice management where the electronic medical records must be constantly updated by high-performance, distributed real-time information systems.
Organization   The Institute is in contact with leading manufacturing companies in the region about collaborative research services, cyberinfrastructure and computational science resources that are should be beneficial, and in some cases necessary, to their respective business operations, especially their R&D activities. It is the expectation of the participants that leaders will be selected, work teams organized and collaborative research projects identified that will be served by the cyber infrastructure being developed by the Institute. If you or your organization is interested in being a participant in the advanced manufacturing cluster please follow the link to Contacts.
Projects   To be announced.
Role of the Institute   The Institute will support the work of the participants in the advanced manufacturing cluster by providing web-based collaboration services to assist project participants with communications, project management, financial and resource management. The Institute will also provide some or all of the computational resources necessary to model, analyze and simulate machine-to-machine and machine-to-business interfaces, structural design elements, and process flow within manufacturing plants, and to configure advanced manufacturing management systems that couple, in real time, vertical plant and business level processes and horizontal supply-chains in order to improve the agility, quality and performance of commercial enterprises.
