Lifecycle of Service Creation using the ISA-95 MOM White Paper Published

The white paper details the lifecycle of MOM Service creation using the ISA-95 MOM standard for services oriented architectures (SOA) for manufacturing.

It discusses the process of decomposing the ISA-95 Part 3 core functions from the global and strategic levels of the manufacturing enterprise to the atomic level of the plant's manufacturing operations. The outcome of this process is 1) the MOM atomic functions are mapped to manufacturing reusable Services across different manufacturing types or forms and 2) an MOM Functional Services Gap Analysis is applied to identify manufacturing automation and operations gaps.

This paper was produced as part of the MESA/ISA-95 Best Practices Working Group through an international peer review process involving 5 or more subject matter reviewers. This MESA White Paper will also be published in one of two methodology best practices collection, Book 2.0, The MOM Chronicles, or Book 3.0, When Worlds Collide in Manufacturing Operations (Collections published by ISA, 10/1/10).

This white paper is available at: All of MESA's white papers are available at for $25.00 per paper for individual papers, or become a MESA premium member and have complimentary access to over 250 white papers, presentations, MOM/MES guidebooks, industry studies and web casts.
