Workshop Product Manufacturing Process Information Integration Based on USBOM


Article Preview

Workshop is gathered place and exchange centre of product manufacturing process information (PMPI), which is divided by enterprise heterogeneous systems. This led to the integration and sharing difficulty of PMPI and constrains the information system application in workshop, like MES. To solve this problem an information integration method based on semantic BOM was proposed. Firstly, a global ontology model USBOM of PMPI was constructed which given the unified semantic description of PMPI. Based on USBOM a PMPI integration framework was proposed. Finally, a workshop product manufacturing monitoring system was used as an example to verify the feasibility of this approach.
