ecent advances in communications technology make it possible for manufacturers to transmit data to each other in fractions of a second. However, if these corporations do not use the same software tools, understanding of the data can be delayed for weeks or months while employees purchase and learn to use new tools. This article describes ongoing research(More)
Many integration projects today rely on shared semantic models based on standards represented using Extensible Mark up Language (XML) technologies. Shared semantic models typically evolve and require maintenance. In addition, to promote interoperability and reduce integration costs, the shared semantics should be reused as much as possible. The GSA(More)
New software standards supporting integration of manufacturing and engineering systems are emerging at a rapid pace. Two groups, the OMG (the Object Management Group) 1 and the community producing STEP (formally known as ISO 10303: the Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data), dominate in the production of standards for manufacturing and engineering(More)
In enterprise integration, a data-exchange specification is an architectural artifact that evolves along with the business. Maintaining a coherent, data-exchange, semantic model is an important, yet non-trivial task. A coherent, semantic model of data-exchange specifications supports reuse, promotes interoperability, and, consequently, reduces integration(More)
