The Smart Manufacturing Journey: Walk? or Quantum Leap?

By Mike Yost, President, MESA International

Some say Smart Manufacturing is a walk - a methodical progression of manufacturing capabilities, beginning with a hodgepodge of disparate systems and processes that ends in a connected enterprise of smart devices and systems and plants.  Sounds logical…

But, that implies any manufacturer in a digital/connected/smart state today had to start long ago; and, doesn’t that contradict the argument that Smart Manufacturing is new?  That it’s only possible now because of Cloud Computing, Cyber-Physical Systems, Big Data, Analytics?

The Smart Factory Shifts from Reactive to Predictive – An ASME and NIST Workshop

Michael Brundage, Ph.D. and Brian Weiss, Ph.D., NIST

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, hosted a “Workshop on Advanced Monitoring, Diagnostic, and Prognostic Technologies”, on June 8-9, 2017, at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together key subject matter experts to identify manufacturing needs and wants with respect to advanced monitoring, diagnostic, and prognostic technologies (collectively known as Prognostics and Health Management (PHM)), along with ways of verifying and validating their performance to enhance maintenance and control strategies within manufacturing operations at the factoryfloor.
