Application of Machine Shop Data Model in Manufacturing Simulation



Yan Luo, Yung-Tsun Lee


Simulation technology holds tremendous promise for the manufacturing industry. A machine shop data model has been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to represent neutral machine shop data for supporting machine shop manufacturing simulation [1]. This paper discusses the data model and its application in manufacturing simulation. The paper also proposes an application framework that integrates the simulation model, machine shop database, and machine shop XML (Extensible Markup Language) data document. A prototype system is developed to present the application of machine shop data model using the proposed framework.
