Guide explains how to integrate ERP and MES systems using standard
ISA recently announced the publication of "The Road to Integration: A Guide to Applying the ISA-95 Standard in Manufacturing" by Bianca Scholten.
This handy resource explains how to apply ISA-95 in manufacturing enterprise systems and vertical integration projects, as well as revealing the most important ISA-95 models and terminology. It’s written for those just starting out who need to get up to speed on ISA-95's background information but also for those who have some practical experience with ISA-95 and require additional support in carrying out analyses to determine a specific company's MES strategy and to define user requirements. Additionally, if you develop MES functionality or realize interfaces based on ISA-95, then this guide is designed to help you understand and apply the ISA-95 object models.
The guide also explains how to integrate ERP and MES systems using ISA-95. It places ISA-95 in the broader context of modern information exchange technologies, thus offering a complete picture for project managers, consultants, programmers and information architects who want to integrate ERP and MES systems based on the international standard.
