The Process Specification Language (PSL) defines a neutral representation for manufacturing processes that supports automated reasoning. Process data is used throughout the life cycle of a product, from early indications of manufacturing process flagged during design, through process planning, validation, production scheduling and control. In addition, the notion of process also underlies the entire manufacturing cycle, coordinating the workflow within engineering and shop floor manufacturing.
The tool, 20 Questions, is intended to help map process characteristics into PSL Ontology concepts. Each form contains a questionnaire that is required to obtain PSL semantics corresponding to your answers to the questions.
