Abstract

We have started a national research and development project of the manufacturing technology information infrastructure, called MZ-Platform. MZ-Platform is a component-based software development framework designed for the support of manufacturing enterprises to enhance digitized technologies in a innovative way. The most notable characteristic is that it can alter running programs by changing their components dynamically. It can load JavaBean components found by a component mining method, make connections with other active components, and execute them. We show some application examples related to design and manufacturing, such as CAD (Computer Aided Design), a data check tool, and a manufacturing process-scheduling system.
