  • ACEEE Panel Discussion on Agile Manufacturing and Supply Chains
    All day
    July 12, 2021-July 15, 2021
    ACEEE Panel Discussion

    See CESMII’s John Dyck on a panel to discuss “Agile Manufacturing and Supply Chains”

     

    This panel will focus on the movement toward resilient manufacturing and supply chains and how being agile can improve a company’s performance. Becoming more agile can enhance customer relationships, reduce waste, and reduce the impact on the environment. Present and future thinking will be presented from organizations supporting agile and smart manufacturing and companies that are on the journey.

    The panel will address these ideas and topics:

    • How to create a roadmap, and then begin the journey towards Resilience. How to quantify the value of that end state and build a business case that justifies the necessary investments to fund that journey. COVID-19 revealed some deep-rooted shortcomings in our approach to manufacturing and to supply chain design in the U.S. and it wasn’t long before industry experts began proclaiming the need for Resilient Manufacturing and/or Supply Chains. What’s in short supply though is pragmatic guidance for the move from theory to implementation (e.g. roadmaps to resilience, business case development).
    • How to better understand your customers and their needs. How metadata can be used to understand customer needs and trends. How information can be shared across your broader organization to better understand customer trends and expectations.
    • How a well-trained, motivated worker on the factory floor can become an essential source of value creation – a ‘Citizen Technologist’ – when digitally equipped and engaged in the quest for productivity and significance. The manufacturing workforce represents a tremendous, untapped resource for U.S. manufacturers, and it’s taken a pandemic to bring this into the limelight. Attention to, and expectations for the Connected Worker concept have risen dramatically, thanks to the converging momentum behind Smart Manufacturing and a wave of innovation around COVID-19 that is positioning the factory worker front and center in digital manufacturing transformation.
    • How an agile supply chain improves sustainability and provides opportunities for improved energy and carbon efficiency.

    3. Introduce the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility’s current state of digital manufacturing technology
    4. Collaborative research opportunities in digital manufacturing

    The workshop begins at 9:00 am on July 29 with a review of the current status of the digital thread in manufacturing systems from leading experts in the field. These updates will be followed by a virtual tour of the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility providing insight into currently available capabilities. Breakout sessions will be used to identify critical needs for technology readiness level 1–6 work necessary to advance the state-of-the-art for the digital thread in manufacturing. The workshop will end at 4:30 pm on July 30 with the development of potential directions for research to address the identified needs.

  • Decarbonizing the USA Industrial Sector – A Roundtable with the USA Secretary of Energy
    10:00 -11:00

    Decarbonization of the USA

    On Thursday, July 29, EERE will host a virtual roundtable event to promote the Department of Energy’s efforts to decarbonize America’s manufacturing sector and pave the way to a carbon-neutral economy by 2050. As part of the Department’s weeklong “Future of Manufacturing” observance, Secretary Granholm will announce several major manufacturing initiatives during the event.

    Manufacturing is the backbone of our economy. Technological advances in energy-efficiency, electrification, use of low carbon fuels, and CCUS for manufacturing will play a critical role in the effort to achieve the Biden Administration’s ambitious industrial decarbonization goals. Advances in manufacturing are also required to produce the clean energy technologies required to decarbonize the rest of the economy. That’s why DOE is harnessing American ingenuity to develop and deploy novel energy technologies that will reduce our collective carbon footprint. The Future of Manufacturing campaign underscores DOE’s commitment to bringing America’s public and private sectors into dialogue about the future of manufacturing and how the sector will support a decarbonization program that benefits all Americans. As such, this panel discussion will feature a diverse range of stakeholders from government, academia, and DOE’s private-sector partners.

    ROUNDTBALE PARTICIPANTS

    • Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm
    • Representative Haley Stevens
    • Jane Flegal, Senior Director for Industrial Emissions at the White House Council on Environmental Quality
    • Leon Topalian, Chairman of American Iron and Steel Institute and Nucor Chief Executive Officer
