SMIC Event (CASE): A National Framework on Smart Manufacturing: Why it Matters and How to Achieve It

Join us for a half-day workshop to learn the framework being rolled out nationally for every manufacturer to understand Smart Manufacturing and the unique roadmap for each organization. Case Western Reserve’s Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS), in collaboration with MAGNET, Manufacturing Works, and Team NEO’s Smart Manufacturing Cluster, are pleased to introduce northeast OH manufacturers to CESMII, the US’ national institute on Smart Manufacturing, and their tools for defining the role, fit, and value of advancing technologies in manufacturing.
The workshop will be facilitated by two experienced leaders: Doug Caywood, co-founder of NxGen Group and retired Microsoft executive, and Mike Yost, CEO of the Industry 4.0 Club.
