15 April 1993 Standards required for implementation of CIM in optics

Abstract
Computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) environment consists of several standalone software packages that are capable of transferring and receiving data from each other. The resulting data should be configured and controlled in a well defined format. Each of the separate software tools operates on various configurations of hardware platforms. Standards are required to enable networking all those platforms and other standards are essential to enable each individual user with his own hardware platform access to operate the various software tools that he needs. The latest trends in the development of numerically controlled (NC) lens production machines, innovative automated testing equipment, and the extension of CAE in CAD packages, are the major contributors for turning CIM in optics from theory to practice. Lack of the appropriate standards within the optical community as well as the status of other standards in computers and CNC, is partially responsible for its limited implementation. Recent developments, the current state, and the standards that are essential for CIM in the optical industry are presented.
