NEMI Introduces Supply-Chain-Communication Standards

Complied By Deborah Austin To shorten time and reduce cost of information exchange partnerships across the manufacturing supply web, the National Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (NEMI) has introduced the first of a new suite of standards. The product data exchange (PDX) standards were developed by NEMI's Virtual Factory Information Interchange Project. PDX will be formally standardized through IPC -- the U.S.-based trade association for the electronic interconnection industry -- a source for industry standards, training, and public policy advocacy. The IPC standardization process kicked off Oct. 16. The initial PDX standards involve:

  • Generic requirements for supply-chain communication.
  • Requirements for supply-chain communication of as-built product data.
  • Requirements for product-design configuration. NEMI is an industry-led consortium of electronics manufacturers, suppliers, associations, government agencies, and universities.
