Abstract

Computer representations for machine tools, cutting tools, and associated hardware are used within a variety of manufacturing software applications. Currently there is no agreed-upon mechanism for representing such manufacturing resource data and as a result this information is individually entered and maintained on multiple systems within-a single manufacturing which could be shared among manufacturing software applications and thus, would be of great benefit to both the users of the software proposed solution which supports common milling, undergo validat on testing through the integration of a shared database with several manufacturing software applications as described in this paper. Efforts to build consensus for such a manufacturing resource representation through standards-making organizations are also discussed.
