Savigent Software becomes first national member of Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute

The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute has announced that Savigent Software has joined the Manufacturing USA initiative as its first national member.

In partnership with the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, CESMII brings over $140 million in public-private investment to enable smart manufacturing technologies and systems to become the driving, sustainable engine that delivers real-time business and energy improvements in US manufacturing.

Jim Wetzel, CEO of CESMII, says: “Savigent is not only our first national member, but will be an important technical partner moving forward. 

“As our organization grows with additional members from industry, academia and non-governmental organizations, CESMII will create an ecosystem for innovation, workforce development and business practices to advance our institutional goals and the productivity goals of our members.”

As the Institute’s first national member, Savigent Software will work with CESMII’s leadership and its regional, resource and consortium partners to develop and leverage nationwide projects focused on making more efficient use of energy and other resources.


Mark Besser, senior vice president of customer success for Savigent Software, says: “We’re eager to share the Savigent Technology and our passion for Smart Manufacturing with the CESMII network.

“These projects and initiatives will validate and increase productivity, energy efficiency and overall profitability, significantly improving the capabilities of participating US Manufacturing companies and their supply chain.”

CESMII defines smart manufacturing as the business, technology, infrastructure, and workforce practice of optimizing manufacturing through the use of engineered systems that integrate operational technologies and information technologies, or OT / IT.

CESMII’s focus is the development of advanced sensors, controls, platforms and high performance computational models to help companies of all sizes across a variety of manufacturing industries realize the benefits of smart manufacturing and make US manufacturers more competitive.

The Institute will accelerate SM adoption through integration of advanced technologies and intelligence, radically improving precision, performance, quality, sustainability and energy efficiency.

As a provider of event-drivens mart manufacturing software, Savigent Software is a key element for CESMII and is an integral part of the core technology offering the Institute will leverage to build these new solutions.
