About the Dauch Center

For more than 35 years, DCMME (the Dauch Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises) has been the focal point within the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business for promoting education, research and industrial engagement with those interested in operations management and manufacturing management.

The Center accomplishes this through conferences, student competitions, and company projects that create venues for collaboration between firms, students and faculty around the state and across the globe. These opportunities place our students on the leading edge of emerging ideas and technologies and provide differentiating advantages in the manufacturing business.

Manufacturing excellence is what DCMME corporate partners practice, DCMME faculty partners research, and DCMME student partners learn. We stand ready at the nexus of industry, faculty, and student endeavors to meet the wide array of challenges that face the manufacturing sector, serving as a catalyst for collaboration and a motivating force in:

  • Creating innovative solutions for our corporate partners.
  • Driving cutting-edge manufacturing management research by our faculty partners.
  • Delivering course content that compels and excites our student partners.

Please explore our website to learn more about our passion for manufacturing, and how you can share in and benefit from our efforts!
