Paper Abstract

Object-oriented interfaces (OOIs) have become an important component of automation activity. Object-oriented software techniques have provided some hope to cope with the complexity of modern software development tasks. Object orientation is expressed by many researchers as an important direction in designing and implementing software in the 1990s and beyond. In today's electronics industry, there are several different types of interfaces used for different pieces of manufacturing equipment. It is now possible to create a general, OOI for most manufacturing equipment that is easy to use, easy to learn how to use, and easy to modify. Such an interface can benefit the user in terms of savings in time and money. The laser soldering interface, designed and implemented in the Center for Integrated Electronics and Electronics Manufacturing (CIEEM) at Rensselaer, is one of the 'flexible' user interfaces described above. This paper describes the object-oriented graphical tool (OOGT) development and its final structure.
