Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: University Programs in Computer-Aided Engineering, Design, and Manufacturing
Abstract: Product Data Exchange Specification (PDES) is an ambitious project with the goal of developing a standardized format for representing and exchanging information about almost any manufactured product. The National PDES Testbed has several functions, including the obvious ones of testing particular implementations for compliance with the emerging PDES standard, and seeking out and diagnosing unsolved problems in the developing specification. Other tasks for the program will include providing a demonstration site for applications of PDES technology, helping to coordinate a national network of other PDES test facilities, and conducting an information and technology transfer program to speed the implementation of PDES standards.
