Technology

Driving the next wave of Energy Productivity, Manufacturing Productivity and Competitiveness through Smart Manufacturing innovation.

SMART MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES

CESMII’s goal is to accelerate Smart Manufacturing (SM) adoption through the integration of building block technologies such as advanced sensors, controls, platforms and modeling (ASCPM) to radically improve productivity, precision, performance and energy consumption. While each individual building block may on its own be useful in eliminating specific barriers to SM implementation, the information flow between these building blocks is essential to ensure that the solutions developed with these technologies are implemented in a cost effective, re-usable, secure, scalable and repeatable manner.

SM INNOVATION PLATFORM

The Smart Manufacturing Innovation Platform™ (SMIP) is one of four strategic pillars of CESMII’s integrated strategy for democratizing and accelerating the adoption of Smart Manufacturing by small, medium and large manufacturers. The platform enables seamless, vendor-agnostic interoperability of manufacturing-centric technologies, including sensing, control, modeling and analytics, using core capabilities of data ingestion, data contextualization, data management, workflow-based integration and a marketplace of CESMII-approved apps.

The SM Innovation platform 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. The core capabilities of the SMIP can be broadly classified into the following:

  • Connectivity (ability to connect to different data sources)
  • Data ingestion (ability to acquire/capture data)
  • Data Contextualization (ability to organize data into a structured form)
  • Secure Data access, management, exchange (ability to access, store, retrieve the structured data)
  • Workflow orchestration (ability to orchestrate data movement between OT components)
  • Interoperability (ability for OT components to access/interact with the structured data)
  • Platform management (ability to create instances of the platform for creating solutions)
  • Marketplace (ability for applications to be integrated into the platform for use in developing solutions
