Many manufacturing firms have made significant investments in flexible shop-floor execution systems (MES/MOM) and in sophisticated enterprise planning (ERP) systems. Those investments, however, cannot yield their full potential until each has access to the information and capabilities of the other. The MESA B2MML (Business to Manufacturing Markup Language) and ISA-95 (Enterprise – Control System Integration) standards address that coordination problem by providing a sound, robust definition of business activities and the information that must flow between those two realms of Enterprise Planning and Manufacturing Operations Management.

This course defines an approach to integrating manufacturing systems (MES/MOM) with other applications in the business planning & logistics domain as well as in process control domain and explains applicable standards. This is a comprehensive program for MES/MOM Consultants, System Analysts, Industrial IT Architects, Programmers, and Project Managers.
