A Case Study for Modeling Machine Tool Systems Using Standard Representations
Paper in proceedings, 2020

Machine models play an important role to support decision making for purchasing, scheduling, and routing in manufacturing. However, it is challenging to share a machine model that is developed using proprietary formats. A model of a fully assembled machining system in a neutral format can help overcome this challenge. Standard-based machine tool models will not only facilitate information reuse but also enable model exchange between systems. In this paper a case study is discussed to demonstrate the initial effort of a standard representation for a machining system including both component geometric and kinematics information. This standard-based machine model will be easily imported to another tool.
