INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY FOR ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING (ITEM 2000) CONFERENCE.

NIST hosted the ITEM 2000 conference in June 2000, at NIST. Experts from industry and NIST were featured in six sessions and panel discussions designed to examine integration and interoperability problems facing manufacturers as they deploy information technology products to increase productivity, to decrease time-to-market, to lower supply chain costs, and to expand their global reach. Session topics included product data management, manufacturing simulation, knowledge-aided engineering, process representation, electronic commerce, and eXtensible Markup Language (XML) for systems integration. Samples of questions addressed in the panel discussions are:

* What are the impediments to integration?

* What interfaces are appropriate and in what context?

* What standards are applicable?

* What integration approaches work?

* What applications need to interoperate with each other in order to improve business activities?

* What are the issues looming ahead?
