The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII), launched in 2016, is the ninth institute in the Manufacturing USA network. The focus of this Institute is the research and development of technologies and solutions that can capture, share, and process in real-time the increasing amounts of information available at manufacturing facilities. These technologies are expected to enable dramatically improved process control and operation, and enable benefits such as improved energy efficiency, equipment reliability, productivity gains, as well as related improvements in safety, quality, and yield in manufacturing processes.
