"Smart and Advanced Manufacturing Innovation in DOE"
Smart manufacturing is an emerging field that combines physical systems with big data and intelligence. It is also referred to as Advanced Manufacturing, Digital Manufacturing, Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), the Internet of Things (IoT) and in Germany “Industrie 4.0.” It can mean different things to different people, but essentially it is about smartly extracting information from the system to improve overall efficiency of manufacturing. Smart Manufacturing provides effective and secure human-system platform for better decision making and improving the overall productivity and efficiency of manufacturing across the networked enterprise. The talk will describe the objective of the “smart” manufacturing and the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII). The talk will cover, among other things, the critical aspects of smart manufacturing that includes, reference architecture, data analytics, verification, validation and uncertainty quantification, standards and protocols, and workforce training and education.
