CESMII Institute Roadmap Projects

CESMII has a well defined and documented roadmap for the democratization of Smart Manufacturing in the USA.  This roadmap includes themes, Pillars, that taken together, will deliver on our mission.

See the CESMII Institute Roadmap

CESMII manages Department of Energy (DoE)-funded projects executed in partnership with member companies, to drive research and innovation that advance the roadmap of the institute and benefit our members.

CESMII executes five (5) types, or classes, of projects. Each project class aligns with at least one pillar of CESMII’s Institute Roadmap and serves to deliver value against the documented objectives and timelines of each pillar.  As these independent yet interrelated projects move throughout their lifecycle, they are actually working in concert to move the entire institute forward, and deliver on the CESMII mission of the democratization of Smart Manufacturing.
