SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 19, 2016, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced the Reusable Abstractions of Manufacturing Processes (RAMP) Challenge, with support from ASTM International, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC) Organizing Committee (81 FR 91912). The purpose of the RAMP Challenge is to familiarize the community with a recent standard for modeling manufacturing processes that was developed under the ASTM's E60.13 Subcommittee on Sustainable Manufacturing. The RAMP Challenge calls on participants (either as an individual or as a team) to model any manufacturing process and demonstrate application of the ASTM E3012-16 Unit Manufacturing Process (UMP) representation for purposes of information sharing and sustainability assessment. That announcement may be found at https://www.federalregister.gov/​d/​2016-30437.

NIST is reopening the deadline for submitting entries and for resubmitting entries to the RAMP Competition from March 20, 2017, to April 9, 2017.
