A Generic Architecture for Computer Integrated Manufacturing Software Based on the Product Data Exchange Specification
James E. Fowler
The Product Data Exchange Specification (PDES) is an emerging standard that is intended to address the problems of data exchange and representation for a variety of manufacturing enterprises. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a long-standing research program that addresses the problems of integration and development of automated manufacturing systems. This document presents a software architecture that incorporates PDES into the software applications that are part of NIST's work in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM).
