    Our Ecosystem

    We’re better by the sum of our parts. Our membership is made up of the following stakeholder groups allowing us to accumulatively make significant impacts on throughput, quality, cost and energy productivity through Smart Manufacturing. Don’t just take our word for it, hear what our members have to say.

      “We are a small tier 3 and 4 supplier of synthetic and natural rubber raw materials.  We have a small team wearing many hats.  Our engagement with CESMII is delivering value on many fronts, exposing us to the right technologies and techniques, but most importantly, letting us engage with a community of forward-looking manufacturers and technology providers that we would never have found otherwise.  We needed digital transformation expertise for our business, and CESMII put us in touch with Flexware Innovation, an excellent system integrator with whom we were able to engage.  We never would have found them without CESMII.”

      Manufacturer

       

      James Lawrence

      Plant Manger, ECM Performance Materials Group

      “With CESMII’s mission to “democratize Smart Manufacturing”, clearly Systems Integrators can benefit from the success of that outcome.  Since there is so much variation and customization in the way integrators solve problems for manufacturers, a standard approach would be valuable for OEMs, Systems Integrators and the ultimate end-user – the manufacturer.  The momentum CESMII is gaining is clear evidence there is demand for this thought leadership.”

      System Integrator

       

      Scott Whitlock

      CEO, Flexware Innovation

      “We strongly believe in standards, as exhibited by our work with CESMII on key OPC Foundation initiatives, and we appreciate that CESMII is addressing some of the great challenges preventing the adoption of digital transformation at scale. The focus on interoperability, openness, and the crowd-sourcing of information models for manufacturing assets is an essential accelerator for our mutual vision to accelerate the democratization of Smart Manufacturing. We’re pleased to engage with CESMII and their ecosystem as an enabling force in this industry, working broadly to bring real transformation to this industry.”

      Technology Provider

       

      Sam George

      Corporate Vice President, Azure IoT, Microsoft

      “Being a part of CESMII gives us access to a network of smart manufacturing technologies and users that can provide valuable insights and direction around technology development and education and training needs in the industry. “
