Manufacturing standards provide the means for industries to effectively and consistently deploy methodologies and technologies to assess process performance. These assessments set the stage for controlling the manufacturing systems and processes and enabling continuous improvement within the enterprise. Several evolving manufacturing-related standards impact the manufacturing simulation community and software vendors. This panel explores standards that enable modeling and simulation to play a larger role in manufacturing enterprises through tighter integration of simulation with manufacturing operations. Standards that are highlighted through a panel discussion include Core Manufacturing Simulation Data standard, ASTM E60.13 for sustainable manufacturing, SysML and BPMN from the Object Management Group, automation and integration standards: ISA-95 and ISO 15746, standards used in data-driven modeling and simulations including PMML from the Data Mining Group and new work items of codes and standards on Computational Modeling and Simulation for Advanced Manufacturing from a subcommittee in ASME's Verification and Validation (V&V) committee.
