Here is an article at AMT Online on the winners of phase one.
Below is a snippet from the above article with the winners and a brief description of what they proposed.
Uses data acquisition stencils and display objects to virtually connect shop floor equipment, to Visio templates, providing users the ability to develop their own real-time shop floor manufacturing data up-load and visualization programs.
Functions as a plant operations collaboration system that allows ad-hoc groups within an operations team to initiate and control conversations revolving around a snapshot of MTConnect data.
Simulates and visualizes MTConnect interactions against a 3D map of your factory through an elegantly-simple Web site. Uses a drag-and-drop library of virtual equipment to simulate equipment activities.
Uses real-time MTConnect tool path data to automatically scroll to the right page in a set of PDF work instructions, bring real-time simulation corresponding to the feature being machined, and flag any drifts from the intended tool path for operator intervention or material review board action.
Combines processed information from MTConnect data streams with augmented reality technology available through Google Glass technologies. The system will also feedback video and audio information to departments of address production needs.
