CESMII Smart Manufacturing Summit

Join us in accelerating the Smart Manufacturing Journey for all manufacturers

2021 Smart Manufacturing Event

Join us online, the first two weeks of November, for an event unlike any manufacturing event you’ve ever attended, as we demonstrate what it actually means to Democratize Smart Manufacturing.

Whether you’re a Fortune 500 manufacturer or a small manufacturer, you know that Industry 4.0 and Digital Transformation are still far too costly and complex. What you’ll see at CESMII’s Smart Manufacturing Summit and annual Member Meeting is the outcome of several years of effort, investment, research and innovation – all focused on reducing the cost and complexity of Smart Manufacturing.

Session Abstract

Industry Keynote: Unlocking the Strategic Value of Smart Manufacturing

As Vice President of Procter & Gamble’s Global Smart Platforms Technology & Innovation team, Jeff Kent has learned what it takes to both build Smart Manufacturing solutions and what it takes to see them successfully deployed at scale – contributing significant value to P&G’s bottom line. In this keynote, he will share his insights, guidance and lessons learned on this Smart Manufacturing journey. It’s about much more than technology; it’s about a team approach, about clear, outcome-oriented relationships with his clients (the plants), it’s about solving their problems in a cost effect way, but doing so in a way that engages all of the stakeholders – people impacted by these systems, and making sure they can sustain them. It’s also about understanding their constraints, and determining how to partner and collaborate with like-minded organizations that can help them accelerate that journey.

Session Abstract

A more competitive manufacturing future demands a new approach. Our existing technologies, methodologies and cultures have brought us this far, but our productivity as a manufacturing nation has plateaued and declined over the past decade – a strong indicator that transformation isn’t just strategic, it’s a matter of survival. The 4th Industrial Revolution was supposed to herald that transformation, but it hasn’t yet materialized. Join us to see our progress in bringing this ecosystem together, to catalyze and accelerate the journey across the I3.0 to I4.0 chasm, to see Smart Manufacturing in action!

Howard Goldberg   (Bio)

CESMII 

A Video Invitation to our Event by Howard Goldberg
Session Abstract

CESMII is about network-of-networks that help drive the SM transformation, made possible by collaboration. At our very essence is bringing together individuals, organizations and technologies to create one greater good.  CESMII’s network-of-networks simultaneously drives reach on a national scale as well as targeted by industry verticals and technology horizontals.  This ‘reach’ is bidirectional as it enables the dissemination of CESMII’s service offerings to its national membership base and for providing the “voice of membership” back to CESMII.  CESMII’s network-of-networks is comprised of the following components: 

  • Smart Manufacturing Innovation Centers (“SMICs”), that are a collection highly visible, credible, high value, regional extensions of CESMII. Each SMIC is an independent organization with strong industry engagement and core competencies related to a key industry and/or a technology horizontal. 
  • Affinity Groups provide a safe harbor for members to bring their abilities, share concerns/business problems, outline their capabilities and interests, and to develop a plan to engage CESMII resources & strategies as needed. In addition, the conversations and discussions maximize opportunity to solve real Smart Manufacturing problems for members within that industry sector or technology horizontal 
  • Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs) are partners that work in tandem with our SMIC’s to provide more regional connections to small & midsize manufacturers  (SMMs).  This is critical as SMMs represent 98% of all US manufacturing companies. 
  • System Integrators (SI’s) play a key “cross pollinating” role as they work with manufacturers to deploy SM technology solutions by integrating across platforms (HW and SW) and across vendors.

SM Tech Team

CESMII

Session Abstract

Smart Manufacturing is difficult for small and medium manufacturers to afford. And perhaps more importantly, if they can afford it, do they have the expertise in-house to sustain it? The cost and complexity of most SM solutions today makes embarking on this journey a risky one. This DIY SM Demo will highlight how CESMII’s approach to democratizing SM (reducing cost & complexity to make it accessible for all) dramatically reduces your risk in getting started on this journey; how you can start small (without a significant capital outlay) and build it organically with your existing workforce, as they learn and grow with this system.

Conrad Leiva    (Bio)
Vice President of Ecosystem & Workforce Development

CESMII 

Session Abstract

There is much buzz about the potential benefits of technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, smart machines, cobots, and augmented reality but the secret sauce of Smart Manufacturing is in how we thread solutions together to achieve our technology-enabled business strategies and outcomes. That “secret sauce” is composed of the SM First Principles. In this session we will learn about the SM First Principles through examples contrasting against traditional Industry 3 methods from the past few decades. You will leave with a clear understanding of what Smart Manufacturing is and how it will help your company achieve results that are fast, proactive, interoperable, secure, scalable, resilient, and sustainable. Learn how these considerations help maximize the value and future-proof the investment in Smart Manufacturing projects.
