CESMII Offers Funding for a Wide Range of Projects

Projects fall into a variety of categories in order to deliver value to move Smart Manufacturing forward for all to take advantage of, the Democratization of Smart Manufacturing.  We need to address the delivery of new technology and standards, the delivery of education, projects for proof of concepts, the delivery of local examples of success, and local demo centers.  With all this in mind, CESMII is funding:

 

CESMII Pillars

 

Enabling R&D Projects

Enabling R&D Projects are very special.  This is where CESMII funds research to solve some of the greatest challenges facing industry.  Examples include the reduction of CO2 in the manufacture of Cement, or the modeling of energy use through the monitoring of equipment states, or the savings in energy by better understanding the nature of Air Separation – through the use of Digital Twins.

The results of our funded research are then shared as value for CESMII Members.  Some research results may be licensed for use on a broader level.  You should contact CESMII if you are interested in licensing.

Smart Manufacturing of Cement

Smart Manufacturing of Cement

Predictive process models, data analytics, sensors and machine learning, will be developed to provide a more energy-efficient clinker production process with better quality control.

Inferential Modeling for Driving Out Energy Waste

Inferential Modeling for Driving Out Energy Waste

The primary objective of this project will provide technical staff with technology to sniff out unknown or unexpected energy consumption across the facility. Prove the hypothesis that energy waste can be detected without the use of expensive energy meters.

Smart Connected Workers in Advanced Manufacturing

Smart Connected Workers in Advanced Manufacturing

The goal is to develop design tools and open source reference architectures that will enable engineers to reliably assess and implement data flow requirements for affordable, scalable, accessible, and portable smart manufacturing systems.

Data Modeling for Smart Aerospace Additive Manufacturing

Data Modeling for Smart Aerospace Additive Manufacturing

The goal of this project is to develop technologies on data modeling, machine learning and data-centric analytics for smart Aerospace additive manufacturing and to implement these innovations using data from working Aerospace manufacturing facilities.

 

Ecosystem and Workforce Development

Factory 4.0 Educational Toolkit

Factory 4.0 Educational Toolkit

The goal is to develop an instrumented bench scale extrusion kit and platform that can be integrated into education modules (labs, projects, class materials).
