The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) is one of 14 National Manufacturing Institutes that currently form Manufacturing USA. CESMII's Mission is to enable Smart Manufacturing to become the driving, sustainable engine that delivers real-time business improvements in U.S. Manufacturing. CESMII enables rapid technology adoption to increase productivity, job growth, energy efficiency, safety and time to market for companies of all sizes. The CESMI mantra is to get “the right data in the right form, to the right people with the right knowledge, the right technology, and the right operations, whenever and wherever needed throughout the manufacturing enterprise.” This presentation will provide an overview of this industry-lead network of networks involving five regional manufacturing centers, including opportunities for involvement from the cement industry. Success stories from a variety of industries, including chemicals, food, and advanced materials will be shared.
