Smart Manufacturers: Provide Your Input to ISA

July 17, 2017
As part of the ISA-95 Committee’s work to update the standard, input from the smart manufacturing community is actively being sought.

Over the last three-and-a-half years, the ISA-95 Committee has been working with corporate partners that have invested over $2 million to drive Smart Manufacturing updates to the standard. These updates are being made to meet ISA-95’s manufacturing and supply chain operations information modeling requirements for the standard’s Industrie 4.0 initiatives related to integration and Big Data analysis.

Having completed a number of working drafts, the voting drafts for ISA-95 Part 2 and Part 4 CVD01 (L3-L4 exchange objects and L3-L3 exchange objects, respectively) are now released for vote and comment. Part 5 (MOM Transactions), Part 8 (MOM Exchange Profiles and Specification) and Part 9 (Common MOM Event Transactions) are in working draft.

To help familiarize all interested parties on these parts of the standard a three-part webcast series will be conducted. The series will take place twice in two global time zones during July and August. All Smart Manufacturing and MES/MOM professionals are welcome to attend these webcasts.

Voting drafts will then be reviewed at the Joint ISA-95/JWG5 meeting in Boston on September 18-21, 2017, with the goal being to resolve all comments prior to release of the final versions of Parts 2 and 4.

The webcast sessions are as follows (all times listed as Eastern Standard):

Session 1: New Information Models

Wednesday, Aug. 2—8:30-10 p.m.
