RFP 2 - Wave 3 Project Resources

CESMII is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP 2 - Wave 3) for institute roadmap projects. The areas of interest for these RFP waves will focus on:

The SM Innovation Platform (SMIP) is an environment that allows individual operational technology (OT) functional components to be able to interoperate, and for data to be orchestrated between these components. At the heart of SMIP are SM Profiles, an innovative way of providing the ability to move "data-in-context" from source to consumption, and between components that consume the data to provide a solution. The SMIP also includes the SM Marketplace from where OT applications and SM Profiles can be configured for developing solutions to manufacturing use cases.
