Abstract:

This report is a basic guide to the use of the GMAP System Architecture as installed on the NIST AMRF VAX as part of the National PDES testbed Project. An overview of the GMAP System Architecture is provided. The use of the GMAP software to create an implementation environment for the PDES draft Proposal Specification February 1989 is outlined. The software organization on the NIST AMRF VAX and the development of test and validation applications are described. The GMAP System Architecture consists of software system components which meet the three basic requirements of an automated product data environment. The requirements are data definition, application support, and data exchange. The system components are defined and the role they play is described. GMAP is the Geometric Modeling Applications Interface Program, a United States Air Force contract which Pratt and Whitney, United Technologies, was the prime contractor. The installation of the GMAP software deliverables at the National Institute of Standards and Technology was possible under a technology transfer clause of the GMAP contract.
