Analysis of Additive Manufacturing Communities of Interest
MetadataShow full item record
Research will seek to answer the questions: A - What are the key nodes and clusters in the social network of additive manufacturing communities of interest? B - What are the ties that link together members of these formal and informal networks? C - How could we more effectively bridge together individuals and clusters within the social network of Navy innovators (from the deck plates up) with the larger innovation community of interest in the area of additive manufacturing? D - How can we measure the growth and effectiveness of the Navy Innovation Network and the larger innovation community of interest in the area of additive manufacturing to enhance collaboration? E - Can we longitudinally measure the impact that formal and informal innovation networks have on enhancing the Navy's effectiveness and rapid prototyping of additive manufacturing capabilities? F – What strategies would be best suited to connect additive manufacturing innovation communities of interest to those best placed to adopt new ideas for rapid prototyping in the private sector?
