The Core Manufacturing Simulation Data (CMSD) specification, developed by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, provides neutral structures for the efficient exchange of manufacturing data in a simulation environment. The CMSD effort is being developed under the guidelines, policies, and procedures of the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) to address interoperability issues affecting simulation systems and other manufacturing applications. This paper describes some of the activities related to the CMSD standards development effort, including comparison of CMSD to other specifications in the domain, pilot implementations of the CMSD specification at automotive assembly plant, and the simulation of inventory systems in a generic automotive assembly simulation.
