The STEP efforts is led by the International Organization for Standardization ISO TC184SC4. This plan also outlines a number of supporting project threads that have been established for the Testbed initiation of the Testbed, development of configuration management systems and services, development of testing systems to validate the proposed standard, specification and testing of application protocols, construction of a prototype STEP-based manufacturing cell, establishment of a product data exchange network, development of conformance testing systems, and management technical support activities....
