INDUSTRIAL SCALE DEMONSTRATION OF SMART MANUFACTURING ACHIEVING TRANSFORMATIONAL ENERGY PRODUCTIVITY GAINS

University of Texas at Austin - Austin, TX

A Smart Manufacturing (SM) platform can integrate information technology, performance metrics, and models and simulations driven by real-time plant sensor data. This integrated platform allows manufacturers to optimize energy productivity in real-time, and, in turn, reduce waste and improve energy efficiency up to 30%. The SM platform would allow manufacturers to evaluate and assemble a rigorous system of monitoring and process control regardless of company size or industry type.
