LANSING – Manufacturers throughout the state will soon have access to digital modeling and simulation tools through General Electric’s Advanced Manufacturing and Software Technology Center. The new tools should save money and create jobs, the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences says. The developing innovation center that will provide such tools is the result of a partnership between General Electric and NCMS based in Ann Arbor, and a $1 million grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC).. GE’s technology Center in Van Buren Township will house the innovation center.
