Industry standards: ISA releases report on using ISA88 and ISA95 together

A new ISA technical report is targeted for industry stakeholders intending to use the ANSI/ISA95 series for enterprise-to-control system integration and the ANSI/ISA88 series for control system integration within a common project.

08/04/2008


ISA88, the Batch Control Systems standards committee, has completed a technical report on using its standards with the ISA95 Enterprise/Control System Integration standards.
The technical report is targeted for industry stakeholders intending to use the ANSI/ISA95 series for enterprise-to-control system integration and the ANSI/ISA88 series for control system integration within a common project. The report helps individuals understand the key issues involved in using ISA88 and ISA95 together so that they can make appropriate choices. The technical report is the result of an effort to identify key areas of overlap and gaps between the two standards.
ISA88 provides guidelines for the design and specification of batch control systems. The purpose of the committee’s work is to provide standards and recommend practices as appropriate for the design and specification of batch control systems as used in the process control industries. ISA88 defines terminology specific to batch control systems in order to increase understanding between manufacturers and users. A standard data structure batch control language is provided in order to simplify programming, configuration tasks, and communication between components of systems.
The ISA95 series defines the interface between control functions and other enterprise functions based upon the Purdue Reference Model for CIM (hierarchical form) as published by ISA. The goal of using ISA95 is to reduce the risk, cost, and errors associated with implementing interfaces between systems. The standard defines information exchange that is robust, safe, and cost effective. The exchange mechanism preserves the integrity of each system's information and span of control.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
