Data capturing, Data collection and Data acquisition standards Organizations and Institutes

Supporting the manufacturers need for process improvement and process optimization through data capturing, data collection and data acquisition to motivate the CNC machine control manufacturers to provide easy access to the required data on the CNC machines to generate process improvement and process optimization; several data capturing, data collection and data acquisition standard institutes and organizations have been formed.

Examples for data capturing, data collection and data acquisition standard institutes and organizations are: the MTCONNECT which is a manufacturing industry standard to facilitate the organized retrieval of process information from CNC machine tools. Another organization is the OMAC, the Organization for Machine Automation and Control, which is a global organization that supports the machine automation and operational needs of manufacturing.
