On 10 February 2022, v2.0 of the proposed MTConnect Standard commenced a 90-day review cycle. Starting with v2.0, the normative MTConnect information model will be an XMI file rather than text documents.
The v2.0 release of the normative, canonical MTConnect data model as XMI is anticipated for Spring 2022. The release package will further include supporting materials generated from the model: XML schema files, JSON schema, and text documents.
The review is being done by a joint DMSC/MTConnect Working Group (WG), with most of the representation being from the MTConnect membership – only two DMSC member companies have been actively participating.
MTConnect Standard Committee members (no fee to join) have access to both the XMI (SysML) file as well as an interactive HTML structured representation of the SysML model for review and comment. The Standards Committee will meet bi-weekly through March to address the 90-day intellectual property and technical review on Version 2.0.
DMSC encourages member companies to join the MTConnect Standards Committee and WG initiative, adding DMSC representation. Also, there is a co-Chair position opening, which was previously held by a DMSC member.
