The IMS MISSION Architecture for Distributed Manufacturing Simulation
Charles R. McLean, Frank H. Riddick
This paper presents an overview of a neutral reference architecture for integrating distributed manufacturing simulation systems with each other, with other manufacturing software applications, and with manufacturing data repositories. Other manufacturing software applications include, but are not limited to systems used to: 1) design products, 2) specify processes, 3) engineer manufacturing systems, and 4) manage production. The architecture identifies the software building blocks and interfaces that will facilitate the integration of distributed simulation systems and enable the integration of those systems with other manufacturing software applications. The architecture is being developed as part of the international Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS) MISSION project.
