The purpose of this workshop is to envision and plan a future in which informatics serves as an effective "expert system" tool, streamlining the nanomanufacturing enterprise. From materials to processes to products; accessible data, information, models, and simulations will enable innovators to optimize performance and speed up the time from concept to product. Informatics for nanomanufacturing will become a key element of sustainable manufacturing - helping companies minimize materials usage, energy consumption, and overall cost, while ensuring safety to people and the environment. Informatics for nanomanufacturing will provide the digital thread throughout the value chain, enabling acceleration of innovations through expanded resources and capabilities. Product designers will mine and utilize a growing base of manufacturing resources and intellectual infrastructure to simulate and prototype next-generation products and completely new applications. Manufacturers will have access to timely information in the global supply chain. Vendors, materials developers, and component makers will be able to identify supply chain gaps as opportunities. Informatics for nanomanufacturing tools will help companies leverage their capital investment in manufacturing equipment, providing a means for flexible and extensible uses of existing infrastructure. Manufacturing design relies on accurate data and information--ranging from piecemeal to well integrated. Given the recent development of efficient automated methods of collecting, archiving, and sharing data--even in real time--now is an excellent time to review the current state-of-the-art, identify opportunities and gaps, and plan a roadmap for Informatics for nanomanufacturing.
