Information modeling is critical to the integration of conceptual design and process planning. An information model for conceptual design is provided in this paper. Conceptual design is a key activity in early product development. It determines product functions, form, and the basic structure. Major manufacturing cost is committed in early conceptual design(More)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, smart sensor project focuses on the development and support of the IEEE 1451 Smart Transducer Interface Standard for Sensors and Actuators. One of the main objectives of this project is to provide reference implementations and applications of the IEEE 1451 family of standards. This(More)
Intelligent agents can enable the integration of preliminary design with manufacturing planning software systems. These agents execute in a computer-based collaborative environment called “multiagent platform.” A prototype agent platform supporting the integration of preliminary design and manufacturing planning has been developed at NIST. These agents have(More)
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451 standard provides plug-and-play capability of smart transducers (sensors and actuators). Plug-and-play is an important aspect of interoperability, which is the ability of two or more systems to easily communicate each other. Interoperability testing verifies if these systems will communicate(More)
Interoperability is the ability of systems or software applications to communicate with each other. Interoperability testing verifies that systems can work together based on a standard protocol in an operational environment. This paper introduces an interoperability test system for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)(More)
Conceptual process planning is a key activity for designers to evaluate manufacturability and manufacturing cost and time in the early product development stage. Since major manufacturing cost is determined in early design, it is critical to be able to assess manufacturability and cost as early as possible in the design process. The integration between(More)
