Abstract

Targeting the improvement of environmental analysis of manufacturing systems, ASTM 3012-16 provides guidelines for formally characterizing manufacturing processes. However, the difficulty that has arisen in the early use of the standard illustrates the need for intuitive tools for helping modeling experts to conform to the specified information model. In response, we present the UMP Builder, a browser-based tool integrating symbolic mathematical and guided textual inputs, helping to consistently record and exchange manufacturing process models for environmental sustainability. The tool provides an initial layer of governance and verification with respect to the conformance to ASTM 3012-16. In this paper, we (1) detail the requirements with developing such a tool, (2) propose an improved schema to represent unit manufacturing process (UMP) models accommodating data-driven techniques, and (3) demonstrate the tool using a contributed model from an open challenge for modeling manufacturing processes.
