3YOURMIND Enables Distributed Manufacturing for U.S. Navy

News Ryan Hayford | July 8, 2021 | 3 min read

3YOURMIND has been awarded a contract by NIWC Pacific to implement Agile ERP and MES software platforms with Machine Connectivity to enable a globally distributed manufacturing network.

Detroit, Michigan, July 7, 2021 - 3YOURMIND partners with The Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific to develop a seamless, digital production workflow that enables distributed manufacturing. NIWC Pacific and NIWC Atlantic are strategically positioned to meet the nation’s demands for uninterrupted vigilance, adaptive response and engineering excellence. Adopting additive manufacturing technologies and integrating 3YOURMIND’s software platform to establish an AM specific digital thread and standardize workflows are a critical part of this mission.

3YOURMIND is proud to support the U.S. Navy, along with other US Services, to address the challenges of the 21st century battlefield by enhancing warfighter innovation through technology adoption. The AM software provider is committed to help the Department of Defense using additive manufacturing to create and distribute parts at locations across the globe and deliver assets in a timely manner regardless of quantity.

The Agile manufacturing software solution is supporting the U.S. Navy to enhance its additive manufacturing efforts across multiple locations and track worldwide production of assets and parts. 

“It’s imperative for the US military to have secure data and production transparency to achieve operational success,” says William Cuervo, Sr. Business Development Manager at 3YOURMIND “With multiple, international locations equipped with a variety of AM technologies, materials and competencies - it’s valuable to have a sophisticated software strategy that collates and organizes this information.” 

3YOURMIND provides ERP and MES solutions designed to establish a 3D printer network that is responsive, communicative, and secure.

An operational environment, such as a battlefield, relies on quick and decisive solutions. The ability to print on demand in distributed manufacturing locations becomes a significant advantage and 3YOURMIND is the tool that makes it reliable, secure, and repeatable.

“Distributed manufacturing is a key tenant in delivering as-needed parts to the Fleet,” says William Cuervo, Sr. Business Development Manager at 3YOURMIND. “Being able to communicate the need for specific parts, safely transmit the associated manufacturing data, and monitor production at any location across the globe gives us the ability to be more effective than ever before.” 

3YOURMIND is committed to helping the U.S. Navy and NIWC Pacific develop cyber network infrastructure and knowledge management services to ensure that reliable information is available only to those who need it, where and when they need it.
