CESMII & SME are thrilled to announce the formation of a Smart Manufacturing Executive Council to Accelerate the Adoption of #smartmanufacturing in the U.S. The council will focus on Ecosystem, Technology and Workforce.
The Smart Manufacturing Executive Council will act as ambassadors for the vision of Smart Manufacturing in the U.S., working to accelerate the transformation of the entire manufacturing ecosystem and to inspire a vision for the future of manufacturing.
Smart Manufacturing Executive Council Gains Visibility
For a more in-depth dive into how the Smart Manufacturing Executive Council hopes to transform manufacturing, listen to the Peggy Smedley podcast featuring John Dyck, CEO, CESMII & Jeannine Kunz, Chief Workforce Development Officer, SME.
The advent of low-cost sensing, ubiquitous connectivity, and cloud computing has fundamentally transformed the ability of manufacturers to leverage real-time information to make Smart decisions that dramatically improve precision, productivity, and performance, from the shop floor level to the supply chain level. This is what Smart Manufacturing (SM) is all about, and its origins can be traced back to as early as 2006 according to a recent article that celebrates the 15th anniversary¹. Smart Manufacturing has gained visibility and acceptance throughout the world since then and has become a universal term.
The report showcases the manufacturing technology and workforce development innovations underway at the Manufacturing USA institutes, which are delivering value for manufacturers and the American public.
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.

Guidewheel joins CESMII in hopes that it will give them greater exposure to industry trends, best practices, and the broader CESMII manufacturing ecosystem so that they can stay close to their customers and continue building towards exactly what this industry needs. The institute offers them a unique opportunity to have their “ear to the ground” of what manufacturers are prioritizing. Guidewheel hopes to engage with manufacturers but also with every leg of the ecosystem.
