Paper Abstract

Rapidly evolving information technology, especially World Wide Web (WWW), brought many innovative changes to people's lives and businesses. Information technology not only influences people's daily lives and business but also impacts on manufacturing. As computers become powerful and affordable, factories introduced computers to their shop floor to integrate manufacturing since 1980's. Because manufacturing industries tend to acquire world-wide manufacturing facilities, it got difficult to set up, control, maintain, and optimize to facilitate manufacturing resources on global sites. However, little work has been done in the area of global manufacturing until recently. A Web-Based Machine Control System (WMCS), which controls remote manufacturing resources using a general-purpose web browser has been implemented at Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) laboratory of Northeastern University. This research presents a framework and Java implementation of WMCS for Manufacturing. The general-purpose web browser has been used as a front-end interface to interact with WMCS through HTTP (Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol) protocol.
