Public review draft of Manufacturing open framework for IVI ecosystem.

IVI starts a public review of the implementation requirements of manufacturing data translation between different platforms. The document aims that individual platforms can become a user of valuable data provided by the other individual platform without huge effort of particular integration.
This document is a basic specification document followed by four implementation sub-system specifications including Hyper Connection Server (HCS), Hyper Connection Terminal (HCT), Hyper Connection Manager (HCM), and Hyper Dictionary Manager (HDM), all of which will be also published later.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in Japan. Finalizing the project by the end of this February, the resulted use case documents and implementation specifications as well as the developed software will be published and provided as open source so as to develop this data sharing approach more and more open bases.

The public review document is available here.
