Step-nc - step-compliant data interface for numerical controlers


The IMS STEP-NC project will develop and implement a comprehensive STEP-compliant data model for the CNC manufacturing process. It will provide a new quality of IT-based manufacturing by integrating the stop floor into the company-wide information and logistics network. By that way machine operators will be provided with full process information. Manufacturing know-how can be captured and re-used. New cross-departmental IT solutions based on the data model will be demonstrated. The project will take the results of ESPRIT 29708 STEP-NC and ISO 14649 DIS beyond their milling-oriented focus into consideration and extend the modelling to all major manufacturing technologies and systems involved. For the implementation of the developed models into the industry use a global teamwork is very helpful for taking into consideration the different applications.
