Abstract
In response to DLA SBIR Topic DLA152-001 for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, Sentient Corporation (Sentient) proposes to develop a life cycle cost optimization tool based on our commercial DigitalClone modeling technology. This tool will enable users to evaluate the tradeoffs between alternate manufacturing processes, implementation costs, and the performance/durability of the resultant components allowing for a standardized comparison of life cycle costs. This innovative software solution will enable DLA personnel to evaluate the cost effectiveness of alternate manufacturing process and provides quantifiable life expectancy data to help determine how the should cost value of such alternatives might compare to current product offerings. DigitalClone life prediction capabilities can be applied not only to traditional manufacturing processes that are typically used by DoD suppliers, but also to emerging advanced manufacturing techniques such as Additive Manufacturing. Sentients solution will greatly enhance the DLA business case analysis (BCA) process for considering how to employ additive manufacturing and other advanced manufacturing processes.
