Data is collected from the Manufacturing Lab using the MTConnect standard. That data is aggregated and published internally and externally of NIST via web services. Three channels of data dissemination are available or becoming available from the SMS Test Bed: (1) a volatile data stream using an MTConnect agent, (2) a query-able data repository using the NIST Material Data Curation System (MDCS), and (3) pre-compiled data packages that include a collection of CAx Lab data and associated Manufacturing Lab data.
