Technical Program of the Factory Automation Systems Division 1991
Howard Bloom, Gary Carver
The Factory Automation Systems Division (FASD) provides a focus for national research and standards efforts related to information systems for manufacturing. In carrying out its mission, the FASD contributes to the strength of manufacturing in the United States and to the ability of the United States to remain competitive in world markets. A major objective of the FASD is to provide leadership in the development of national and international standards relating to information technology and manufacturing systems to meet U.S. industry needs for the twenty-first century. The work of the FASD is based on the principle that this leadership must be founded on experience in implementing and testing new information technologies and engineering concepts. Such experience is used by Division staff to develop and promote appropriate standards and technologies (and the engineering disciplines needed to support them), particularly for manufacturing systems.
