    This revision will be focused on extending and strengthening the schema presented in ASTM E3012-16. One of the key goals of ASTM E3012-16 is to characterize and record unit manufacturing process (UMP) models in a consistent manner to promote re-use and sharing of the UMP models. The current schema provided in the standard does not explicitly support this activity. This was apparent when the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) hosted a modelling challenge in 2017 with ASTM E3012-16 as a requirement. The submissions rarely conformed to ASTM E3012-16. In response, NIST has designed a more detailed schema to ensure that the standard is followed more closely by process modelers. NIST also proposes some additional revisions to the standard that are captured in the new schema, including the inclusion of more specific elements within the product and process information element as well as other elements and attributes to promote traceability of the models.
