Software and Tools

Manufacturing Software and Tools

Testing and Evaluation Support

  • NIST DMIS Test Suite - designed to help users and vendors use version 5.2 of the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) and to support DMIS conformance testing.
  • MSID XML Testbed - collection of XML-Related Tools
  • Express Engine - STEP (ISO 10303) development environment which supports the validation of STEP data populations via EXPRESS (ISO 10303-11) schemata and the transformation of STEP data populations from one schema to another via EXPRESS-X (ISO 10303-14) schemata.
  • IENetP Test Tool - Develop metrics, tests, and tools to determine and report the network performance of industrial Ethernet devices in a standardized way.

Semantic Technology Support

Application Support

  • Automating Equipment Information Exchange (AEX) - software and test suites for AEX , a set of XML schemas supporting capital facility equipment engineering, procurement, construction, and operations and maintenance work processes.
  • Exercise Control System- a web application to manage tabletop exercises.
  • Expect - a tool for automating interactive applications.
  • OntoSTEP Plugin- The goal of the OntoSTEP project is to add value to STEP using Semantic Technologies. This goal is achieved by translating the APs defined in the EXPRESS language (ISO 10303-11), and the actual instance files represented using the ISO 10303-21 (or simply part21) format.
  • SIMREST - a set of tools to create distributed simulations using RESTful Web Services

Standards Development Support

  • Sustainability Standards Portal - a comprehensive and searchable list of standards with details and links to the original standards developer websites
  • OntoSTEP Plugin - translates APs defined in the EXPRESS language (ISO 10303-11) and instance files using the ISO 10303-21
  • Open Source EXPRESS Parser - developer tools for EXPRESS (ISO 10303-11), an information modeling language. The core of this project is a Java Express parser using the ANTLR parser generator
  • Reeper - set of Ruby tools for manipulating ISO EXPRESS data models
  • STEP Class Library - a set of C++ class libraries which are capable of representing information conforming to the EXPRESS (ISO 10303-11) data specification
  • STEP File Analyzer - a software tool that generates a spreadsheet from a STEP (ISO 10303) file
  • Sustainable Manufacturing Indicator Repository (SMIR)- provides centralized access to sustainability indicators
