On Migrating ISO 10303 PMI Models to a Common Core

January 4, 2023
Allison Barnard Feeney, Thomas Thurman
Industrial users of ISO 10303 STandard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (STEP) protocols needed the ability to exchange design product data that is in conformance with recently updated ISO geometric product specification (GPS) standards, the American

Speed, the double edge sword of the Industry 4.0

October 31, 2022
Marion Toussaint, Sylvere Krima, Allison Barnard Feeney, Herve Panetto
The recent digital transformation of the manufacturing world led to numerous benefits, from higher quality products to increased productivity and reduced time to market. In this digital world, data has become a critical element in many essential decisions

Requirement elicitation for adaptive standards development

September 27, 2021
Marion Toussaint, Sylvere Krima, Allison Barnard Feeney, HERVE PANETTO
The recent digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the fourth industrial revolution (or Industry 4.0), heavily relies on information standards for the exchange and integration of digital data across manufacturers and their partners. Standards


September 1, 2021
Allison Barnard Feeney, Keith A. Hunten
Composite structures have been developed for use in aerospace, automotive, sports and marine industries since the early 1940s. Compared to conventional metallic structures, high-performance composite structures provide benefits such as decreased weight and

Defining requirements for integrating information between design, manufacturing, and inspection

May 11, 2021
Thomas D. Hedberg Jr., Michael Sharp, Toby M. Maw, Moneer Helu, Mostafizur M. Rahman, Swati Jadhav, James J. Whicker, Allison Barnard Feeney
Industry desires a digital thread of information that aligns as-designed, as-planned, as-executed, and as-inspected viewpoints. An experiment was conducted to test selected open data standards' ability to integrate the lifecycle stages of engineering

Towards model-based integration specifications to secure the extended enterprise

September 30, 2020
Sylvere Krima, Marion Toussaint, Allison Barnard Feeney
With the growing digitalization of manufacturing and the associated reliance on digital data, manufacturers, their supply chains, and their customers are exposed to many and varied digital threats. One such digital threat is compromised integrity of the

On Practice and Theory of Constructive Composite Geometry and Topology

November 25, 2019
Thomas D. Hedberg Jr., Allison Barnard Feeney, Vijay Srinivasan
This paper synthesizes a theory from industrial best practices codified in recent standards. Recent editions of ASME and ISO standards codify the evolving industrial best practices in defining and modeling the information about products made from fibrous

On-Machine Measurement Use Cases and Information for Machining Operations

August 2, 2019
John A. Horst, Thomas D. Hedberg, Allison Barnard Feeney
Digital thread standards for both dimensional metrology and industrial machine tool operations have been defined in standards organizations and successfully implemented in several commercial manufacturing production operations. A next step is to define a

Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection Data for a Three-Component Assembly

February 12, 2019
Thomas D. Hedberg, Michael E. Sharp, Toby M. Maw, Mostafizur M. Rahman, Swati Jadhav, James J. Whicker, Allison Barnard Feeney, Moneer M. Helu
To better understand and address the challenges faced in linking all stages of a manufacturing and design process, an investigative fabrication process was designed and enacted as part of a collaboration between the National Institute of Standards and

Contextualizing Manufacturing Data for Lifecycle Decision Making

March 12, 2018
William Z. Bernstein, Thomas D. Hedberg, Moneer M. Helu, Allison Barnard Feeney
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems manage the flow of data about the product and the processes that are used throughout the product's lifecycle so that the right information is delivered at the right time to the right systems. Manufacturing in the

Extending and Evaluating the Model-based Product Definition

December 22, 2017
Nathan W. Hartman, Jesse Zahner, Thomas D. Hedberg Jr., Allison Barnard Feeney
Industrial practice is in a state of transition, away from the use of drawings towards the use of annotated 3D CAD models as a means of communication. Working as a representation of an object or a system, a model-based product definition (MBD) is used to


July 4, 2017
Shaw C. Feng, William Z. Bernstein, Thomas D. Hedberg Jr., Allison Barnard Feeney
The need for capturing knowledge in the digital form in design, process planning, production, and inspection has increasingly become an issue in manufacturing industries as the variety and complexity of product lifecycle applications increase. Both

Cyber-physical Systems Engineering for Manufacturing

October 7, 2016
Allison Barnard Feeney, Simon P. Frechette, Vijay Srinivasan
There is a convergence of interests in cyber-physical systems, systems engineering, and manufacturing innovation in the United States. The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has undertaken research programs in smart manufacturing

Promoting Model-Based Definition to Establish a Complete Product Definition

August 31, 2016
Shawn P. Ruemler, Kyle E. Zimmerman, Nathan W. Hartman, Thomas D. Hedberg Jr., Allison Barnard Feeney
Most of the manufacturing and engineering industries, especially aerospace and defense, are evolving and starting to use 3D models as the central knowledge artifact for product data and product definition, or what is known as Model-based Definition (MBD)

A Summary Report on the Model-Based Enterprise Capability Index and Guidebook Workshop

August 22, 2016
Joan Pellegrino, Yannick Tamm, Allison Barnard Feeney, Thomas D. Hedberg Jr.
