DMC 2014

The DMC is the nation’s largest annual forum for enhancing and leveraging the efforts of scientists, engineers, managers, technology leaders and policy makers across the defense manufacturing industrial base.

This event brings together leaders from government, industry and academia to exchange perspectives and information about critical Department of Defense (DOD) industrial base policies, sector analyses and manufacturing technology programs for the production and sustainment of affordable defense systems. This is the premier national forum for presenting and discussing initiatives aimed at addressing enhanced defense and related national manufacturing capabilities and requirements. Since its inception in 1969 as the Manufacturing Technology Advisory Group (MTAG) Conference, DMC has provided the defense community with a forum for presenting the latest innovative manufacturing technology developments.

Average attendance is well over 1,000, divided between government and industry participants, with a small complement from academia. DMC 2014 continues a long-standing tradition of presenting the requisite policy, strategic investment planning, program management, risk mitigation and workforce education and training efforts necessary for efficient technology adoption and resilient, force shaping impact in a period of shrinking defense budgets.
