Abstract
We propose to build a National Simulation Service that will have triple benefits to industry. First, it will give companies new freedom to produce at a scale that matches demand. Second, companies will have access to a wider variety of expertise and options than they would otherwise have internally, resulting in better products and processes. Third, it will make companies more robust because they will no longer be in danger of losing critical capabilities during a contraction in the business cycle. The new service will make it possible for any expert anywhere to understand how an organization runs its manufacturing processes. With the understanding the expert will be able to fix and optimize problems without being a 24/7 employee or on-site consultant of the enterprise.
