CESMII – The Smart Manufacturing Institute is excited to add GE Digital to our rapidly growing ranks of partners and members. Interoperability, community, and innovation that can scale are essential for a more competitive and resilient manufacturing environment, and it’s a pleasure to welcome market leaders that embody these values to our Smart Manufacturing (SM) ecosystem.
The ecosystem engagement and collaboration with industry leaders, like GE Digital, is the engine at CESMII that accelerates the democratization of Smart Manufacturing. The ecosystem works on Smart Manufacturing technology, innovation, education, and demonstrations in collaboration with CESMII’s regional SM Innovation Centers.
“CESMII is focused on enabling and accelerating the adoption of Smart Manufacturing for all manufacturers,” says Matt Wells, Vice President – Digital Product Management at GE Digital. “We see ourselves as a driving force in this industry and working with CESMII enables us to tackle data and application interoperability as one of the great challenges facing this ecosystem. We see this as a major benefit for manufacturing, but also for our system integration community, and look forward to engaging with them in these strategic endeavors.”
“This is a pivotal time for CESMII,” states John Dyck, CEO of CESMII. “We are making great progress on many fronts, addressing the real challenges preventing manufacturers from accelerating their Smart Manufacturing and digital transformation initiatives. Our focus on enabling manufacturing application interoperability will have a dramatic impact on our productivity and competitiveness as a manufacturing nation. A big part of that is defining and enabling the adoption of de facto standards that will dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of deploying Smart Manufacturing solutions. We’re pleased to see GE Digital take this step with us, advocating for standards, for interoperability and creating a community of thought leaders that can truly transform this industry.”
