Smart Manufacturing Project Case Stories
Case Studies Smart Manufacturing
We will be gathering and publishing stories about the projects manufacturers and producers have implemented on their journey
to smart manufacturing. Our goal is to publish 50 of these stories so that community members can learn from other production
companies and share those easily. When we find trends we may also create topic-focused papers based on these and the
community discussions. Share my story.

Workshops Smart ManufacturingWorkshops

Our first workshop had over 100 participants at the 2018 MESA North American / IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology
Conference. This started the new topic-focused community discussions described above. 

We plan additional workshops at events worldwide. Community members will be instrumental in ensuring workshops include
your peers, suppliers, customers, and partners.

Online Surveys Smart ManufacturingOnline Surveys
Results of our first survey show that most manufacturers have already implemented at least one Smart Manufacturing initiative,
