24 November 1999 Toward an open-architecture specification language for machine control

Current machine control operating environments rely heavily upon G codes to specify the desired machine behavior. G codes provide a sequential non-preemptive execution semantics that, together with the operating environment, allow for precise control of the machine. However, G codes do not allow for the type of reactive behavior specification required in the next generation of open architecture manufacturing system and propose the semantics for a language that meets those requirements.
