CESMII, established under UCLA by the Department of Energy, focuses on smart manufacturing and 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. Their technology roadmap identifies five main focus areas: (1) Advanced sensors; (2) Real-time big data analytics and control systems; (3) Standardized open software and communication platforms; (4) Advanced high fidelity modeling; (5) First-of-kind application toolkits for smart manufacturing. Request for proposals are issued each year, with the RFP-2, Wave-1 deadline on Oct. 28, 2019. For more information on membership, please visit https://www.cesmii.org/membership-information/.
