An open web-based repository for capturing manufacturing process information
Paper i proceeding, 2016

With recent progress in developing more effective models for representing manufacturing processes, this paper presents an approach towards an open web-based repository for storing manufacturing process information. The repository is envisioned to include several new use cases in the context of information use in smart manufacturing. This paper examines several key benefits through usage scenarios engaging existing engineering activities. Based on the scenarios, the desired characteristics of an open web-based repository are presented, namely that it will be (1) complementary to existing practices, (2) open and netcentric, (3) able to enforce model consistency, (4) modular (5) extensible, and (5) able to govern contributions. A repository will support and motivate the ubiquitous and extended use of standardized representations of unit manufacturing processes in order to promote consistency of performance assessments across industries and provide a tangible, data-driven perspective for analysis-related activities. Furthermore, the paper presents additional benefits and possible applications that could result from a shared manufacturing repository.
