Smart Manufacturing Knowledge Embedded Facilities

Smart Manufacturing envisions the enterprise that integrates the intelligence of the customer, its partners and the public. It responds as a coordinated, performance-oriented enterprise, minimizing energy and material usage while maximizing environmental sustainability, health and safety and economic competitiveness.

Greater manufacturing complexity and radically different performance objectives will require the pervasive application of networked, real - time information - based technologies, knowledge - embedded facilities, a reactive operational approach to one that is predictive and compliance to performance.
