Recent advances enable data from manufacturing systems to be captured and contextualised relative to other phases of the product lifecycle, a necessary step toward understanding system behaviour and satisfying traceability requirements. Significant challenges remain for integrating information across the lifecycle and enabling efficient decision-making. In this paper, we explore opportunities for mapping standard data representations, such as the Standard for the Exchange of Product Data (STEP…

Standards for Smart Manufacturing: A review
TLDR
The landscape of existing standards in the context of smart manufacturing is reviewed and guidance on the selection of the standards for different smart manufacturing applications is offered.
Recommendations for collecting, curating, and re-using manufacturing data
This report provides general recommendations for collecting, curating, and re-using manufacturing data from both additive and subtractive processes. The intended audience includes researchers,
Feasibility study for an automated engineering change process
TLDR
A feasibility and performance analysis of automating engineering change requests is presented to demonstrate the promise for increasing speed, efficiency, and effectiveness of product-lifecycle-wide engineering-change-requests and the genetic algorithm is selected to demonstrate feasibility.
Industry Review of Distributed Production in Discrete Manufacturing
TLDR
The technological challenges that have hindered distributed production in discrete manufacturing are presented as is a state-of-the-art review of the standards and technologies that have been developed to overcome these challenges.
A proposed mapping method for aligning machine execution data to numerical control code
TLDR
This work proposes a mapping technique for standard manufacturing data representations that focuses on relating controller data from machining tools in the form of MTConnect, an emerging standard that defines the vocabulary and semantics as well as communications protocols for execution data, and G-Code, the most widely used standard for numerical control instructions.

Toward a Lifecycle Information Framework and Technology in Manufacturing
TLDR
LIFT is a conceptual framework for lifecycle information management and the integration of emerging and existing technologies, which together form the basis of a research agenda for dynamic information modeling in support of digital-data curation and reuse in manufacturing.
Promoting Model-based Definition to Establish a Complete Product Definition.
TLDR
Information about how models are used in industry within different workflows needs to be understood to help establish a Common Information Model, and to retrieve this information, a survey mechanism was administered to industry professionals from various sectors.
Identified research directions for using manufacturing knowledge earlier in the product life cycle
TLDR
Recommendations for investigating the relationship of manufacturing knowledge with shape, behaviour and context characteristics of a product to produce a better understanding of what knowledge is most important are proposed.
A traceability information model for CNC manufacturing
Towards Identifying the Elements of a Minimum Information Model for Use in a Model-Based Definition
TLDR
This study identified the information used within the specific workflows, the capabilities of 3D CAD models to carry this information, and the implications for doing so, and found what is the minimum set of required information to carry out all the tasks in a given workflow of a model-based enterprise.
Business Intelligence Roadmap: The Complete Project Lifecycle for Decision-Support Applications
TLDR
The authors walk readers through every step of the process--from strategic planning to the selection of new technologies and the evaluation of application releases and conclude by crystallizing their many years of experience in a list of dos, don'ts, tips, and rules of thumb.
A system and architecture for reusable abstractions of manufacturing processes
TLDR
The development of a system for managing a repository and conducting analysis and optimization on manufacturing performance models through the use of Unity Decision Guidance Management System is reported on.
Gaps Analysis of Integrating Product Design, Manufacturing, and Quality Data in The Supply Chain Using Model-Based Definition.
TLDR
The main goal of the study is to test the hypothesis that model-based-data interoperability from CAD-to-CAM and CAD- to-CMM is feasible through standards-based integration, and to explore the interaction between CAD and CMM processes and determine if the concept of feedback from CAM andCMM back to CAD is feasible.
Knowledge Maturity as a Means to Support Decision Making during Product-Service Systems Development Projects in the Aerospace Sector
TLDR
The concept of knowledge maturity is explored as a means to provide practical decision support, which increases decision makers’ awareness of the knowledge base and supports cross-boundary discussions on the perceived maturity of available knowledge, thereby identifying and mitigating limitations.
A Portrait of an ISO STEP Tolerancing Standard as an Enabler of Smart Manufacturing Systems
TLDR
The attributes of smart manufacturing systems, the capabilities of STEP AP 242 in handling tolerance information associated with product geometry, and how these capabilities enable the manufacturing systems to be smart are described.
