Workshop #1: State of the Art in Smart Manufacturing

Participants will discuss national priorities and explore opportunities in various industry sectors, including continuous, batch, and discrete manufacturing, software and hardware providers, smart manufacturing original equipment manufacturers, and supply networks. 

Workshop #2: Education, Training, and Workforce Needs for Smart Manufacturing

Participants explored a wide range of impacts that smart manufacturing could have on industry, the U.S. economy, and the environment. You are invited to register and attend the workshops virtually or in person and/or provide comments to the study.

Workshop #3: Broader Impacts of Smart Manufacturing

The workshop will explore and prioritize the industry sectors that could be most impacted and under what conditions smart manufacturing could improve efficiency and scale of impact. 

At the encouragement of Congress, and based on the national imperative and need to address smart manufacturing challenges, the Department of Engineering sponsored the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NAE) to commission an official study called “Options for National Plan on Smart Technology Development and Deployment.” A committee, comprised of a cross-section of industry, academia and non-profits was appointed by NAE to help develop the study recommendations which will inform policy, funding, and potential legislation. Over the past month, 3 separate workshops have taken place to gather information

CESMII CEO John Dyck had the opportunity to present in the Workshop on the Broader Impacts of Smart Manufacturing focusing on the Top 5 Challenges faced by US Manufacturing on our current trajectory and CESMII’s impact.
