Regional seminar on smart manufacturing – November 29th

A new industrial revolution is taking place. At the forefront is the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) that is helping manufacturers of all sizes, and across all industry sectors, with bringing together information and operations technologies built on the open SM PlatformTM.

The goal is to create radically smarter, more productive, and energy-efficient production systems and domestic supply chains across American industry, while empowering workers from the plant floor to the C-Suite with actionable information for real-time decision-making. This transformation aims to unlock the true potential of our people, processes, and technology by transcending barriers of cost, risk and accessibility.

Attend this seminar on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at the University of Louisville, Belknap Campus, to find out more about CESMII’s key strategic objectives and near-term technology road map.
