Taxonomy for a Measurement Information Infrastructure (MII):
Letting Metrology Systems Talk to Each Other
Speaker-Author: Mark Kuster, Pantex Metrology

Abstract
Imagine a set of normative standards that define data structures, taxonomies, service protocols and security for locating, communicating and sharing measurement information. Those standards comprise what we call a measurement information infrastructure, or MII. What if your organization’s measurement, analysis and management computing systems spoke this MII language with other world-wide measurement-related systems? How would that affect your business? This session discusses the real-world benefits such an MII will create, the efforts underway to develop a common metrology language (taxonomy) for measurement data, and how you may participate.
