Experiences with a Manufacturing Framework



Selden Stewart, James A. St Pierre


This paper describes the first year of a joint project between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and SEMATECH. After studying the SEMATECH CIM Framework, we present a roadmap for adoption and use of manufacturing frameworks with four components: developing a specification, reaching consensus, standardization, and testing and certification. Results of our study include numerous recommendations about online specifications, supplier involvement, standards organizations, usage scenarios, reference implementations, and a testing and certification plan.
