Repository systems have emerged recently as a cornerstone to information management. Their envisaged purposes include (1) applications development in a CASE (Computer-Aided Software Engineering) environment, (2) enterprise information resources management (as a passive kernel for information integration), and (3) global information processing and management(More)
An underpinning to the notion of Computer Integrated Enterprises is information integration; that is, the integration of information resources and decision logic across the enterprise so as to achieve fundamental synergies. This concept requires certain basic extensions to two previously separate paradigms: information modeling and metadata management. In(More)
Information integration is always a driving force underlying many major efforts in manufactwing systems, ranging from MRP and MRP II lo the current research on Computer Integrated Manufacturing. The problem of integration, however, has not been sufficiently studied previously from the perspective of information. We r e port in this paper an effort analyzing(More)
Integration has become a self-evident goal in today’s manufacturing enterprises. Since the late 1970’s, numerous major efforts have been launched worldwide to develop, employ, and deploy information technology for integration as a strategic weapon to compete in the global marketplace. Important results have been obtained, including Computer Integrated(More)
The Metadatabase project is a multi-year research effort at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Sponsored by industry (ALCOA, Digital Equipment Corporation, GE, General Motors, IBM and others) through Rensselaer's Computer Integrated Manufacturing Program, this project seeks to develop novel concepts, methods and techniques for achieving information(More)
