Abstract

With recent progress in developing more effective models for representing manufacturing processes, this paper presents an approach towards an open web-based repository for storing manufacturing process information. The repository is envisioned to include several new use cases in the context of information use in smart manufacturing. This paper examines several key benefits through usage scenarios engaging existing engineering activities. Based on the scenarios, the desired characteristics of an open web-based repository are presented, namely that it (1) complements existing practices, (2) is open and net-centric, (3) enforces semantic integrity, (4) is modular (5) is extensible, and (5) supports contributions. A repository will support and motivate the ubiquitous and extended use of standardized representations of unit manufacturing processes in order to promote consistency of performance assessments across industries and provide a tangible, data-driven perspective for analysis-related activities. Furthermore, the paper presents additional benefits and possible applications that could result from the deployment of a shared manufacturing repository.
