This report describes a database model currently under development at the Manufacturing System Integration Division (MSID) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The database model contains a set of tables that are mapped onto the machine shop information model developed by MSID. The information model provides neutral data interfaces for integrating machine shop software applications with simulation. The interface data include organizations, calendars, work, resources, schedules, parts, process plans, and layout within a machine shop environment. The database model is implemented using Microsoft Access; it is used to support the integration of manufacturing applications and simulations for machine shops.
