It’s turning out to be a busy week for the Object Management Group, a non- profit consortium that produces and maintains computer industry specifications for interoperable enterprise applications. On the group’s agenda this week at its Boston meeting is adopting software standards for manufacturing, biotechnology, space/satellite computing and other industries.

In manufacturing, a new standard defines Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Services and integrates this key piece of manufacturing software with the OMG's established Product Data Management (PDM) facility. In biotechnology, a new specification defines laboratory equipment control interfaces in OMG Interface Definition Language (OMG IDL), making compatible equipment accessible from CORBA-compliant software. Extending CORBA standards beyond earth's atmosphere, issuance of a new Request for Proposals (RFP) will start work on a standard for the exchange of satellite command and telemetry data.
