Enhancing the Value Chain with the PI System
Manufacturers are always looking to reduce their product’s time to market and differentiate their product with value-added services.
The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII), a partner of the Department of Energy, is a consortium of academia and industry chartered to develop a platform for smart technologies and systems for use in advanced manufacturing, to keep US companies competitive through data insight and advanced analytics. The speaker will describe how the platform can be used to expedite the optimization of an additive manufacturing process.
