How the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) at Texas - the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) works with the local institute, Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII)
The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) is the ninth manufacturing Insitute awarded under the Department of Energy.
Smart Manufacturing (SM) enables all information about the manufacturing process to be available when it is needed, where it is needed, and in the form it is needed across the entire manufacturing value-chain to power smart decisions. Islands of efficiency become interoperable, networked, and resilient solutions to drive transformational manufacturing enterprise performance for any size, level of technical sophistication, or resource availability at lower cost.
