Abstract : The Product Data Exchange Specification (PDES) is an emerging standard for the exchange of product information among various manufacturing applications. A software toolkit for manipulating PDES data has been developed at the National PDES Testbed at NIST. This toolkit includes software for processing PDES information models, defined in the Express language, and PDES product models, stored as STEP physical files. The components of this NIST PDES Toolkit are discussed, as are several applications which have been built using the Toolkit.... Data modeling, Express, Product data exchange, PDES, PDES Implementation Tools, Schema-Independent software, STEP, STEP Physical file.
