  • (Updated) Indiana Manufacturing Competitiveness Center (IN-MaC)

    Below is a summary of the Indiana Next Generation Manufacturing Competitiveness Center (IN-MaC) technology adoption program, a service through Purdue University that is available to Indiana manufacturers.  Click here to download a PDF of the IN-MaC flier.

    Indiana Manufacturing Competitiveness Center (IN-MaC):  This program provides matching funds for Indiana manufacturers to adopt new technologies designed to improve their process – in general these technologies are defined as computer models.  We have quite a bit of experience in creating simulation models of various manufacturing processes to assist in capacity planning and process improvement, in addition to digital engineering (finite element modeling) and product lifecycle management software.   The state will provide funds for Purdue faculty to work with your business to successfully implement technologies in any of these three areas, at a level up to 2x your in-kind investment with a maximum of $40K.  http://www.purdue.edu/in-mac/tech_adoption.html
