John Dyck, along with four leaders from our newest CESMII Smart Manufacturing Innovation Centers (SMICs) about what’s next in workforce development and how the democratization of Smart Manufacturing will support manufacturers on their journey.
Are you looking for a clear understanding of what Smart Manufacturing is and how it will help your company achieve new levels of connectivity, intelligence, and automation in the manufacturing ecosystem?
All CESMII members can enroll in our FREE 90-minute eLearning Course: Future Proof and Maximize the Value of Future Systems with the Smart Manufacturing First Principles.
Accelerate your Smart Manufacturing Business Transformation
Take the Business Practices Assessment to see where you are on your industrial transformation journey. These tools are designed to help small and medium manufacturers align the business strategy, technology-enabled practices, and establish or reassess an innovation roadmap that leads to higher levels of operational performance and customer service.
The main objective of this workshop is to bring together CESMII members to share knowledge about their respective project objectives, accomplishments, and developments. This will be a great opportunity to exchange views, learn from each other, create synergies among different CESMII stakeholders and foster collaboration among different project teams.
We will cover all CESMII Projects: Innovation, Enabling R&D, Education and Workforce Development, SM Platform Capability, and Application Projects.
1:00 – 5:00pm EST on the following dates:
February 1, 2022
February 2, 2022
February 3, 2022
February 8, 2022
February 9, 2022
February 10, 2022

As industry evolves—as we digitally transform—we can become smarter and more efficient in our applications of energy. That mindset powers the smartest manufacturers among us, and is the common thread in the features that make up this new report from Smart Industry. Get your copy here.
We are happy to introduce a new section dedicated to monthly
highlights of our completed projects and supporting details.
NOTE: RFP3 selection notifications are now expected the first week of February.
OUTCOME: DEMOCRATIZING SMART MANUFACTURING
Smart Manufacturing Infrastructure to Connect Workers and Systems to Improve Productivity
Created affordable, scalable, and portable smart manufacturing systems where IoT technologies can be integrated into mobile sensor platforms. This smart, connected infrastructure empowered workers and operation supervisors to optimize workflows and processes. Resulting in improving energy efficiency and productivity for advanced manufacturing environments.
Used CESMII SM Platform to implement smart manufacturing technologies enabling the identification of yield and operational efficiency improvements. This project quantified the impact of variability in the supply chain and processing of chicken by-products and the resulting impact of yield for four (4) product streams.
Data Production of Zero Defect (ZD) Slabs in Steel Continuous Casting
Improved steel slab quality and continuous caster productivity using Smart Manufacturing (SM) methodologies and technologies, thereby reducing overall energy intensity of the existing steelmaking and casting operations.
Developed technology to drive out wasted energy in manufacturing facilities through improved information technology. Provided technical staff with technology to sniff out unknown or unexpected energy consumption across the facility. Learn More
