Integrating Data Visualization Software with Manufacturing Facility Databases: Reference Implementation and Lessons Learned

Published

Author(s)

William Z. Bernstein

Abstract

This paper enumerates challenges and limitations faced as an open source visualization software, namely Keshif, was paired with an SQL database from the NIST manufacturing shop located in the Fabrication Technology Division. The goal of this project is to demonstrate the utility of interactive data exploration of traditional manufacturing shop floor data housed in SQL databases. First, we describe the purpose of the project. Then, we showcase a Keshif instance representing 6340 active jobs in the NIST shops. Lastly, we enumerate challenges associated with this effort.
