Abstract

Manufacturing systems consist of many activities. Each of these activities may include one or more software and hardware. In order to make these software and hardware systems interoperable, the data exchange and share among them must be seamless. How to standardize data sharing and exchange is one of the key issues that impede achieving manufacturing interoperability. A machining and measurement process planning activity model was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to address the current information exchange situations and some of the barriers. This model represents functional activities in manufacturing systems with emphasize on process planning activity. Current standards and specifications for information exchange between different activities are identified. The purpose of this model is to provide a broad view for standard developers and industry experts to comprehend the common data flow between these activities and therefore to avoid multiple definitions for the same data.
