Smart Manufacturing Community Comes Together With MESA

This blog is a MESA Member Point of View

By: Patricia Panchak


MESA International (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association) is creating a community of manufacturing professionals to explore five common Smart Manufacturing initiatives that it identified in a recent survey. The Association launched the effort at a workshop called “Seeking Common Ground for Smart Manufacturing,” held at the MESA North American Conference, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The community is open to join for members and non-members, and will give manufacturing operations and information technology professionals a venue in which to explore opportunities and successful strategies. A focus of the groups will be sharing current state-of-the-art learning and stories about successful projects and initiatives. The community of MESA members have the opportunity to work together in a safe space to evolve their strategies and build connected Smart Manufacturing ecosystems and value chains.
