Aspect Model Editor 

The Aspect Model Editor is a visual editor for aspect models, which automatically validates the models against the BAMM Aspect Meta Model. All concepts, possibilities, and restrictions defined by the BAMM are incorporated in the Aspect Model Editor in a convenient way with a smart user flow. Typically, aspect models are edited as code, that is, text-based. With the Aspect Model Editor, such code gets visualized so that relationships and dependencies within the model can be understood quickly and easily.

Manufacturing Reference Architecture Working Group releases a new Whitepaper on Condition Monitoring

With this third publication, the group covers Condition Monitoring in depth by addressing the underlying business goals, essential features, and functional requirements for the system as well as the quality goals for the architecture. It contains descriptions of each component as well as schematic blocks, identifies and defines patterns for data ingestion or deployment between the cloud and the edge.

The working group is envisioning to use such use cases to develop the OMP Manufacturing Reference Architecture.

Semantic Data Structuring Working Group releases  BAMM v2.0 Specification, BAMM Aspect Meta Model

In November of 2021, the SDS-WG published BAMM version 2.0.  The major feature update is around the idea of Entity Inheritance. The new abstract entity meta model element together with the extends attribute can be used to define a hierarchy of entities in an aspect model. This allows a user to define a collection of different components sharing a common set of properties, for example.

Introducing the BAMM Aspect Meta Model SDK

This Semantic Data Structuring Working Group (SDS WG), authors of the BAMM Aspect Meta Model, have delivered the first BAMM SDK. The BAMM SDK is a set of tools and guidelines to help developers implement an aspect model in their own organization.  It contains artifacts and resources for all parties intending to use, extend, or integrate with the BAMM Aspect Meta Model, including solution developers, domain experts, or OEMs.

Semantic Data Structuring Whitepaper

This whitepaper by the Semantic Data Structuring Work Group, describes the challenges manufacturing enterprises of all sizes are facing today as they seek to compete in the world of IIoT and Industrie 4.0. The paper then goes on to feature a typical manufacturing use case from the automotive industry and a series of working hypotheses for how to address the problem of disparate data sets and sources. Finally, the paper presents a detailed architecture and digital twin approach for not only ingesting and storing data but also for contextualizing the data such that it can be used effectively across environments.

Edge Computing in the Context of Open Manufacturing

This is the second publication from the IoT Connectivity Working Group and it seeks to define a reference application for edge computing in the manufacturing context.  The paper approaches the topic of edge computing from a manufacturing use case perspective with an infrastructural, an application, and an operational viewpoint. An edge computing framework’s core characteristics and components are identified and described. The paper outlines edge computing in a manufacturing setting with a goal of moving the sector towards a common understanding.

Semantic Data Structuring Working Group’s  BAMM Specification, BAMM Aspect Meta Model

This is the first publication from the Semantic Data Structuring working group.  The specification serves as an introduction to how an aspect meta model fits into digital twin technology, how an aspect meta model should be structured, and what types of publications this working group will deliver in the future.
