11. An Integrated Data Model for Quality Information Exchange in Manufacturing Systems
Published: 7/27/2012
Authors: William G Rippey, Yaoyao Fiona Zhao, Thomas Rollin Kramer, John A Horst, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Quality measurement is an integrated part of modern manufacturing systems. As the manufacturing industry has entered a digital and virtual era, information technology has become increasingly important for both machining and measurement systems. Effec ...

12. Enabling Machining Vision Using STEP-NC
Published: 6/8/2012
Authors: Martin Hardwick, Frederick M Proctor, David Loffredo, Sid Venkatesh
Abstract: STEP-NC is a new data format for manufacturing control. One of its applications is to enable integrated on machine measurement of machining processes using vision systems and other sensors. In this paper we describe the manufacturing process and manu ...

13. A Roadmap for STEP-NC Enabled Interoperable Manufacturing
Published: 6/17/2011
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Frederick M Proctor, Martin Hardwick, Sid Venkatesh, David Odendahl, Xun Xu
Abstract: STEP-NC is the result of a ten-year international effort to replace the RS274D (ISO 6983) G and M code standard with a modern associative language. The new standard connects CAD design data to CAM process data so that smart applications can understan ...

14. Mixed Pallet Stacking: An Overview and Summary of the 2010 PerMIS Special Session
Published: 2/4/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Henrik I. Christensen, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. A special session of the 2010 PERMIS workshop was held to exami ...

15. Metrics for Mixed Pallet Stacking
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. Many billions of dollars are spent each year in preparing, ship ...

16. Using Simulation To Assess The Effectiveness of Pallet Stacking Methods
Published: 11/19/2010
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Henrik I. Christensen
Abstract: Stacking objects onto pallets is the most widely used method of bulk shipping, accounting for over 60% of the volume of goods shipped worldwide. Due in part to the wide variation in size, shape and weight of objects to be palletized, successful stack ...

Published: 11/18/2010
Authors: John L Michaloski, Byeong Eon Lee, Frederick M Proctor, Sid Venkatesh, Nils Bengtsson, Anders Skoogh, Benjamin Raverdy
Abstract: In manufacturing, Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can be effectively used to model production and provide sustainability analysis of equipment and system operation by measuring throughput, capacity, and bottlenecks. DES allows analysis under differen ...

18. A Machining and Measurement Process Planning Activity Model for Manufacturing System Interoperability Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7734
Published: 10/29/2010
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Frederick M Proctor, John A Horst
Abstract: Manufacturing systems consist of many activities. Each of these activities may include one or more software and hardware. In order to make these software and hardware systems interoperable, the data exchange and share among them must be seamless. How ...

19. TOWARDS DATA DRIVEN SUSTAINABLE MACHINING Combining Mtconnect Production Data and Discrete Event Simulation
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Nils Bengtsson, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, Guodong Shao, Sid Venkatesh
Abstract: Recently there has been an increased focus on the environmental aspects of the manufacturing industry across the world. Boeing and NIST have studied the incorporation of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) parameters into Discrete Event Simulation (DES) as ...

Published: 8/18/2010
Authors: Byeong Eon Lee, John L Michaloski, Frederick M Proctor, Sid Venkatesh, Nils Bengtsson
Abstract: Kaizen is a part of Lean Manufacturing that focuses on the concept of continuous improvement to reduce waste. For implementing Kaizen on the factory floor, comprehensive and efficient tools for data acquisition, process measurement and analysis are r ...
