Abstract
Categorical theory has recently been successfully applied to translate information from one computer system to another. Researchers at MIT have developed a prototype software tool based on category theory for solving information-integration programs. The tool has successfully solved small-scale information-integration problems including a problem identified by NIST about enriching the manufacturing service capability of a distributed supply chain with additional 3rd party information. The goal of this Phase I is to transition MIT’s tool from an academic project to a commercial software project and to demonstrate that the enhanced tool can be used to solve manufacturing-related information-integration problems identified by NIST.
