Title: Interoperability and the DMIS experience
Published: October 30, 2009
Abstract: Because they enable true interoperability, information exchange standards can help manufacturers reduce cost and improve product quality, but only if the standards are developed and implemented correctly. We will answer questions manufacturers and suppliers commonly ask, namely, what are information exchange standards, what is true (and false) interoperability, what's the return on investment (ROI) for information exchange standards, what is required to achieve the maximum ROI, and what are the pitfalls and common criticisms of information exchange standards. As we offer answers to these questions, we will give illustration through the experience of working on the Dimensional Measurement Interface Standard (DMIS).
