Recent advances in communications technology are making it possible for manufacturing corporations to transmit data to each other in fractions of a second. However, if the corporations use different tools, understanding of the data may be delayed for weeks or months while employees purchase and understand new tools. This paper describes ongoing research into an information infrastructure that seeks to use standards (formal and defacto) to reduce the problems that occur when corporations want to use different tools to process each others'' data
