Smart Manufacturing “Utility” Resource Platform


There is a need for regional manufacturing revitalization initiatives to offer a shared community smart manufacturing collaboration resource as an “Utility” for small manufacturers individually and as an enabler for large manufacturer supply chain manufacturer participants.  In addition, senior manufacturing executives would be coached with best practices and a path forward.  The proposed collaborative Trusted Smart Manufacturing (TSM)  cloud as a regional “Utility” would host smart manufacturing applications integrated with edge devices such as AMI’s LIMS or Microsoft edge devices all easily accessible over a secure easy to use desktop interface. The working group will discuss this need and how to move the initiative forward.
