1. Dynamic Metrology and ASTM E57.02 Dynamic Measurement Standard
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/29/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Mili Shah, Steven Legowik
Abstract: Optical tracking systems are used in a wide range of fields. The market for optical tracking systems has dramatically increased over the past several years to $1.2B revenue in 2014. This paper describes the new ASTM E3064 Standard test method proce ...

2. Mobile Manipulator Performance Measurement Towards Manufacturing Assembly Tasks
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/13/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Sebti Foufou, Steven Anthony Legowik, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Mobile manipulator performance measurement research is relatively minimal as compared to that of robot arms. Measurement methods, such as optical tracking systems, are useful for measuring the performances of mobile manipulators, although at a much ...

3. Implementing the ISO15746 Standard for Chemical Process Optimization
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/4/2016
Authors: Guodong Shao, Peter O Denno, Albert W Jones, Yan Lu
Abstract: Integrating advanced process control solutions with optimization (APC-O) solutions, within any factory, enables more efficient production processes. Currently, vendors who provide the software applications that implement control solutions are isolate ...

4. Survey of Research for Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/30/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This survey provides the basis for developing research in the area of mobile manipulator performance measurement, an area that has relatively few research articles, as com-pared to other mobile manipulator research areas. The survey begins with a li ...

5. Analysis and Optimization based on Reusable Knowledge Base of Process Performance Models
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 4/29/2016
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, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytics solutions for dynamic production processes. The proposed architecture and framework will ...

6. Mobile Robot and Mobile Manipulator Research Towards ASTM F45 Standards Developments
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 4/21/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Performance standards for industrial mobile robots and mobile manipulators (robot arms onboard mobile robots) have only recently begun development. Low cost and standardized measurement techniques are needed to characterize system performance, compar ...

7. 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 ...

8. Measuring and Representing the Performance of Manufacturing Assembly Robots
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8090
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/10/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Elena R Messina, Craig I Schlenoff, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Joseph A Falco
Abstract: With the growth of robotic technology, there is a need for performance measures to characterize and compare robots and to help determine which features are most suited to a particular application. Robot systems are complex and involve a wide range of ...

10. 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 ...
