|Title:||Quantifying the Performance of MT-Connect in a Distributed Manufacturing Environment|
|Published:||October 08, 2009|
|Abstract:||In the CNC manufacturing world, the continuing pressure to reduce costs and improve time to market places a premium on smarter ways of manufacturing and intensifies the need to integrate feedback from the shop floor into the enterprise business systems. There have been many efforts to improve CNC factory floor integration with varying degrees of success. Recently, MTConnect has been developed as an open and free communications standard to facilitate the exchange of data on the manufacturing floor for machine tools and related devices. This paper will look at quality of service issues concerned with implementing MTConnect in a "Dual-Ethernet" machine tool network configuration.|
