1. Dynamic Metrology Performance Measurement of a Six Degree-Of-Freedom Tracking System used in Smart Manufacturing
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/31/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Joseph A Falco, Milli Shah, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Multi-camera motion capture systems are commercially available and are typically used in the entertainment industry to track human motions for video gaming and movies. These systems are proving useful as ground truth measurement systems to assess the ...

2. Analysis and Optimization in Smart Manufacturing based on a Reusable Knowledge Base for Process Performance Models
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 11/1/2015
Authors: Alexander Brodsky, Guodong Shao, Mohan Krishnamoorthy, Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, Daniel Menasce?, Ronay Ak
Abstract: In this paper, we propose an architectural design and software framework for fast development of descriptive, predictive, diagnostic, and prescriptive analytics solutions for dynamic production processes. The proposed architecture and framework are b ...

3. Intelligence Level Performance Standards Research for Autonomous Vehicles
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 10/2/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina
Abstract: U.S. and European safety standards have evolved to protect workers near Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV's). However, only recently performance standards have begun development for AGV's and mobile robots. Lessons can be learned for developing such a ...

Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 8/3/2015
Authors: Garretson Ian C. , Kevin W Lyons, Mahesh Mani, Swee Kong Leong, Matthew Carter D. , Ann Simmons E. , Karl Haapala R.
Abstract: Industrial uses of natural resources are increasing at an alarming rate. Engineering and decision support tools are needed for analyzing and curbing industrial consumption of resources. Further, assessment methods to measure and indicate continuo ...

5. Software Tools for XML to OWL Translation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: NIST IR 8068
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, Benjamin H. Marks, Craig I Schlenoff, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Zeid Kootbally, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: This paper describes a set of closely related C++ software tools for manipulating XML (eXtensible Markup Language) schemas and XML instance files and translating them into OWL (Web Ontology Language) class _les and OWL instance files. They includ ...

6. A Generalized Data-Driven Energy Prediction Model with Uncertainty for a Milling Machine Tool using Gaussian Process
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/8/2015
Authors: Jinkyoo Park, Raunak Bhinge, Nishant Biswas, Amrita Srinivasan, Kincho H. Law, David Dornfeld, Moneer M Helu, Sudarsan Rachuri
Abstract: Using a machine learning approach, this study investigates the effects of machining parameters on the energy consumption of a milling machine tool, which would allow selection of optimal operational strategies to machine a part with the minimum e ...

7. Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 4/24/2015
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This paper describes a concept for measuring the reproducible performance of mobile manipulators to be used for assembly or other similar tasks. An AGV with an onboard robot arm was programmed to repeatedly move to and stop at a novel, reconfigurabl ...

Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 11/25/2014
Authors: Guodong Shao, Alexander Brodsky, Seungjun Shin, Duck Bong Kim
Abstract: Sustainable manufacturing has significant impact on a company‰s business performance and competitiveness in today‰s world. A growing number of manufacturing industries are initiating efforts to address sustainability issues; however, to achieve a hig ...

9. Safety and Performance Standard Developments for Automated Guided Vehicles
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Roger D. Eastman
Abstract: The American National Standards Institute/Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation (ANSI/ITSDF) B56.5 Safety Standard committee for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) has been considering several changes to improve the standard. Of interest t ...

10. BPMN Profile for Operational Requirements
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/2/2014
Authors: Conrad E Bock, Raphael Barbau, Anantha Narayanan Narayanan
Abstract: An important aspect of systems and products is how they interact with their environment, including how they are operated. Behaviors external to systems usually involve people not trained in the details of how systems are designed and built, but who ...
