Beyond Product Design Data: Data Standards for Manufacturing Resources
Kevin K. Jurrens, Mary B. Algeo, James E. Fowler
The benefits of industrial standards are well-known. They facilitate common markets, influence marketing patterns, and augment the operations of distributed enterprises. Standards for representing, using and exchanging manufacturing data, like standards for other aspects of manufacturing, play a significant role in deeming and enhancing the capabilities of the manufacturing industry. In the domain of mechanical design and manufacturing, information sharing between computer-aided engineering applications (CAE) typically is synonymous with product design data exchange. Other information elements which are relevant to and necessary for the functions performed by CAE applications frequently are overlooked. Current CAE applications require and employ computer-interpretable representations of manufacturing resources (MR) --that is, the equipment, tools, supplies, and facilities which enable industry to perform manufacturing processes. However, since no common representation exists for this information it cannot be shared or accessed readily by CAF applications.
