An Automated Documentation System for a Large-scale Manufacturing Engineering Research Project

Abstract

The Automated Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) being implemented at the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) involves the development of a software system integrating the various information processing, communications and data storage functions required in a totally automated manufacturing environment. The project contains a five year software development effort by more than thirty research staff organizationally partitioned into many units working concurrently on different parts of the system and supplemented by software acquired through procurement or contractual effort. As the facility is implemented in modular blocks, new software development will be undertaken as research into factory automation technology continues.
