Location: Calit2 Building Seminar Room 3008

Abstract: 21st Century Smart Manufacturing (SM) is manufacturing in which all information is available when it is needed, where it is needed and in the form it is most useful. The 21st Century SM enterprise (from suppliers, OEMs and companies to supply chains and industries) are data driven, knowledge-enabled and model rich with cross enterprise visibility such that all operating actions are determined and executed proactively by applying the best possible information and a wide range of performance metrics. SM also encompasses the sophisticated practice of generating and applying data-driven "Manufacturing Intelligence" throughout the lifecycle of design, engineering, planning and production. Manufacturing Intelligence is the deep behavioral understanding of the manufacturing process through data and modeling and creates a new capacity to observe and take action on integrated patterns of operation through networked data, information, analytics and metrics. It produces new insights through a broader base of innovators, and creates significantly greater ability to reuse and repurpose integrated practice through common infrastructure. SM systems use networked, information-based technologies to integrate manufacturing intelligence in real-time throughout the enterprise.

The Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC) is a non-profit organization including 40+ organizations from academia, government agencies, national labs, manufacturing consortia, practitioners and solution providers. SMLC brings together thought leaders and stakeholders from across the nation to take action, and develop the nation's first Open Smart Manufacturing Platform and Marketplace that will revolutionize the manufacturing industry. Access list of partnerships: https://smartmanufacturingcoalition.org/membership-list.

UCLA as a co-founder of the SMLC, is working with the coalition on a response to DOE's NOI on a Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute on Smart Manufacturing.
