Abstract

The major activity of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Systems Integration (MSI) project is the development of an open architecture that incorporates an integrated production planning and control environment with provisions for the detection and recovery from anomalous situations. This document defines the details of the interfaces for control entities (schedulers and controllers) which are incorporated into an integrated system that conforms to the NIST MSI architectural model as revised in 1992.
