Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division

In its broadest scope, the Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) provides a home for TMS members whose work is related to manufacturing from product design to production, integrating process control technology into manufacturing (e.g., applying concepts from the intelligent processing of materials to intelligent design and manufacture), and basic and applied research into key materials technologies that impact manufacturing processes (e.g., solidification, powder metallurgy, and shaping and forming). The modeling, simulation, and control of materials as they affect manufacturing processes is also a key focus of the division.

Get Involved

You can contribute to the work of the TMS Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division by joining a TMS technical committee. Begin by selecting the SMD committee that best aligns with your professional interests, then at the committee roster link, then contact the committee chair for more information. If you are a TMS member, you may also attend a technical committee meeting in person at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition and apply for membership at that time.

As a technical committee member, you can become further involved in developing technical programming, publications content and professional development events. You can also get involved by nominating a candidate for an MPMD award, which recognizes excellence within the MPMD's scope of activities. For a complete listing of ways to get involved with TMS, visit the Volunteer Opportunities section of the website.
