59bc - Smart Manufacturing For Chemical Processing: Energy Efficient Operation Of Air Separation Unit

The goal of this project is to develop a number of SM Platform™ ready tools and deploy them on Praxair’s commercial Air Separation Unit for improving energy efficiency.

Haresh Malkani, CESMII, Pittsburgh, PA

59bd - Inferential Modeling For Driving Out Energy Waste

The goal of this project will drive out wasted energy in manufacturing facilities through improved information technology. The primary objective of this project will provide technical staff with technology to sniff out unknown or unexpected energy consumption across the facility. Prove the hypothesis that energy waste can be detected without the use of expensive energy meters.

Haresh Malkani, CESMII, Pittsburgh, PA

59be - Smart Connected Workers In Advanced Manufacturing

The goal is to develop design tools and open source reference architectures that will enable engineers to reliably assess and implement data flow requirements for affordable, scalable, accessible, and portable smart manufacturing systems (A.S.A.P.) for smart connected workers across all manufacturing sectors.

Miguel Corcio, CESMII, Los Angeles, CA

59bf -Energy Management Systems For Subtractive And Additive Precision Manufacturing

The objective of this effort is to mitigate energy waste in manufacturing facilities, and specifically subtractive precision manufacturing, using model-based systems engineering principles.

Miguel Corcio, CESMII, Los Angeles, CA

59bg - Smart Manufacturing Of Cement

Using predictive process models, data analytics, sensors and machine learning, a Smart Manufacturing for cement control system platform will be developed in partnership with ARGOS USA cement in an effort to provide a more energy efficient clinker production process with better quality control.

Hilton New Orleans Riverside – Marlborough A

Industry 4.0 Topical Conference

Session 102:  Democratizing Smart Manufacturing:  CESMII

Democratizing Smart Manufacturing CESMII's Refreshed Vision for Unleashing the Next Wave in Manufacturing Innovation. The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII), established by the US Department of Energy, is part of a network of institutes under the Manufacturing USA Initiative with a goal to secure the future of manufacturing in the U.S. through innovation, collaboration and education. CESMII's mission is to radically democratize and accelerate the development and adoption of Smart Manufacturing (SM) technologies (sensing, control, data analytics, predictive modeling and platforms) to become the driving, sustainable engine that delivers energy efficiency and real-time business improvements in U.S. manufacturing. A critical enabler for this mission is the creation of a collaborative Smart Manufacturing Platform for industrial applications. The CESMII team will provide an overview of the institute, its refreshed vision, a glimpse into the Smart Manufacturing Platform and an overview of the R&D project portfolio.\
