    Performance requirements in aeronautics and the rapid growth of electronics, especially of digital computers, have gradually led to the combination of advanced control theories and fly-by-wire technology. This has resulted in designs for which the control systems are flight-critical. The required reliability is usually achieved by a multiplication of sensors computers and actuators accompanied by ...

    Describes the AMICE project itself, its development environment, overall CIM-OSA content results and status of the work. Being an ESPRIT project with 20 European industrial and research partners, the development work is carried out in a Europe-wide co-operative and distributed mode of operation. An open architecture for CIM is a much needed, but certainly ambitious, undertaking. Nevertheless, the ... View full abstract»

    Highlights the changes in the world of standards. These changes relate to the whole attitude and approach to standards and the attainment of product that has appropriate levels of quality and reliability. Standards being developed within the European standards organisation CECC represent the best industrial practices and are thus, unlike many earlier standards, flexible and user friendly. European...

  • Modelling with CIM-OSA

    Publication Year: 1991 , Page(s): 109 - 117

    Concerns the CIM-OSA approach for an open system architecture. Modelling with CIM-OSA provides a totally integrated approach to enterprise system design which leads, amongst other things, to the identification of a set of co-operating processes which fulfil business objectives and a set of resources required to execute those processes. The resultant CIM-OSA compliant implementation description (mo... View full abstract»

  • The CIM-OSA integrating infrastructure

    Publication Year: 1991 , Page(s): 118 - 125
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (580 KB)  

    In CIM-OSA the specific functions of each particular CIM system are captured in a CIM-OSA implementation description model whilst the general functions, common to all CIM systems, constitute the CIM-OSA integrating infrastructure. The objective of the CIM-OSA integrating infrastructure is to realise these general functions in a way that allows for the integration of the specific functions inherent... View full abstract»

    This introduction outlines the background to the launching in 1986 of the ESPRIT Project on the European Computer Integrated Manufacturing Architecture (AMICE), and the challenges faced by manufacturers in today's fiercely competitive international markets of selling a product, specified by the customer before it is manufactured, or even before its design is finalised. It introduces the open syste... View full abstract»
