SM Interoperability Platform


What is the Smart Manufacturing Interoperability Platform?

The Smart Manufacturing Interoperability Platform is an example of our interoperability solution to deliver Industrial Plug and Play to all of industry – discrete, hybrid and process.  The platform provides secure connectivity to your equipment and processes, and adds valuable context, so that applications can access your information intelligently and in an assisted or automated way. 

The key technology in the platform is the concept of Profiles, the standards CESMII is creating to contextually describe sensors, equipment and processes, as well as the ability to create semantics for your data, showing how variables relate to each other.  The combination of these new concepts in context, will enable the holy grail, the ability to define new systems, without the need for extensive middleware configuration or infrastructure maintenance and management.
