Research & Development

Research and development provides opportunities to connect academia, laboratories and other scientific associations with practical industry environments to better understand and evaluate advanced technological solutions across manufacturing sectors. 

enabling infrastructure

Access to the SM Platform; a set of cloud services that integrates disparate systems into a marketplace of solutions, tackling the interoperability and security challenges that industry faces. The platform interfaces with new and existing infrastructure, reducing cost and risk.


A phased implementation approach allows for easy, affordable and low risk access to trial and test products. Industry cross-collaboration enables accelerated adoption. SM Platform infrastructure reduces the risk and cost to adopt new manufacturing technology and solutions.

Industry testbeds

A diverse portfolio of industry testbeds accelerate development, testing, and adoption technologies. Training, testing and evaluation in simulated, real-time production environments reduce cost, time, and risk of new implementation with existing assets. 

Marketplace of Solutions

An open, cloud-based SM Marketplace enables real-time access to data-analytic applications and tools driving innovation. Members can implement lower-cost solutions for applications. Vendors will reach a broader market with new business opportunities.



Wide adoption of SM results in improved economic development, increased jobs and a highly skilled labor force. SM equips manufacturers with affordable energy and decision management tools, leading to environmental sustainability and safety considerations.
