ARC, NIST among groups presenting at conference
Seven organizations will co-locate their events at the 2009 ISA Expo on Oct. 6-8 at the Reliant Center in Houston.
Co-locating organizations include ARC Advisory Group, Industry2Grid (I2G), MCAA, OpenO&M, Microsoft and the Microsoft Manufacturing User Group (MSMUG), Houston SmartPlant Instrumentation (LTUF) and WBF.
The co-location of these events coincides with the ISA Fall Training Institute, Industry Standards Forum, six technical conferences and the exhibition itself.
The Presentations at this year’s ISA Expo include:
ARC Advisory Group will host an Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) Knowledge Exchange and Technology Showcase that includes a series of educational workshops and presentations by ARC analysts, end users and leading technology suppliers.
The Committee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology industry2Grid (I2G) Summit will provide an overview of NIST and I2G SmartGrid activities.
The Measurement, Control & Automation Association (MCAA), the industry’s trade association, will hold an Industry Breakfast.
The OpenO&M demonstration is a collaborative effort with POSC Caesar, FIATECH and key ISO Working Groups, as well as leading solutions suppliers. It will enable the needed sustainable IT and IS infrastructure spanning Engineering and Construction, Operations and Maintenance, Controls and Enterprise Business Systems.
OpenO&M will also conduct an Executive Summit for those with strategic accountability for plant and platform performance. This summit is designed to help management understand the business value of ISA membership and ISA standards activities through an executive level discussion and private demonstration of the next generation of open standards-enabled plant and platform management solutions.
Microsoft and the Microsoft Manufacturing User Group (MSMUG) will hold their annual Worldwide Manufacturing Operations Forum.
The Houston SmartPlant Instrumentation (LTUF), a group of Intergraph’s SmartPlant Instrumentation Automation Software users, will hold its fall meeting at ISA EXPO this year.
WBF, the Organization for Production Technology, will offer two seminars: Non-Stop 88 %%MDASSML%% Applying Batch Methods to Continuous and Discrete Processes and “Getting Real” with ISA-95 and B2MML: Implementation Case Studies.

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.
