REACHING GLOBALLY

For thirty years the DCMME Center (Dauch Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises ) has been the focal point within the Krannert School of Management for promoting education, research and industrial engagement with those interested in operations management and manufacturing management. The Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises was formally launched in 1987 with three main goals: to foster educational programs in manufacturing management, to identify a major research agenda, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between the Krannert School and industry. The Center continues to accomplish these goals through various conferences, student competitions, and company projects that create venues for collaboration between firms, students and faculty across the state and around the globe.


Richard Dauch, Co- Founder American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM), Purdue alum and generous benefactor of the Center, “We know that competition on a global scale will require the best we have to offer. The same is true for educating our future manufacturing leaders and encouraging innovation in manufacturing and technology research.”
