The ISA-95 standard “Enterprise – Control System Integration” (also known as IEC/ISO 62264) provides a standard terminology and a consistent set of concept and models to describe manufacturing operations in a structured way. This standard provides a company-wide perspective to system integration. It helps to define and integrate the activities between business and manufacturing operations.

The ISA-95 models are used to determine the information to be exchanged between systems for finance and logistics, and systems for production, maintenance, inventory and quality. The ISA-95 standard can be used for several purposes, e.g. as a checklist and guide for the definition of user requirements, for the selection of MOM suppliers, or as a basis for the development of MOM solutions.

Using MOM systems allow manufacturers to standardize and optimize processes across the enterprise, minimizing lead times, optimizing asset utilization, speeding time-to-market, and increasing both production visibility and collaborative abilities. In the global marketplace MOM systems are taking an increasingly central role in enabling manufacturers to compete efficiently and profitably.

Now, in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution, new technologies are introduced making existing technologies obsolete. However, ISA-95 does not become dated over time the way technology would. It provides a smarter way to push ahead. ISA-95 works to improve manufacturing information clarity, structure and consistency independent of anything involving an implementation using either legacy or current technology. ISA-95 is completely technology- and solution-agnostic.

The ISA-95 standard more than ever contributes to improved communication between all parties involved, enabling users to better identify their needs, reducing costs of automating manufacturing processes and reduce lifecycle engineering efforts, as it has done for the last decades and will do into the future.

This online course, delivered in two sessions of approx. 4 hours, includes several exercises which help you to find out about:

  • Scope of manufacturing operations
  • Activities with respect to production, maintenance, quality test and inventory operations
  • Information that must be shared between control functions and enterprise functions
  • Introduction
  • Overview ISA-95 standard
  • Models and Terminology (Part 1)
    • Functional Hierarchy model
    • Role Based Equipment Hierarchy model
    • Functional model
    • Information model
  • Activity Models of Manufacturing Operations (Part 3)
    • Production, Maintenance, Quality and Inventory operations
  • Examples of applying the ISA-95 Activity models:
    • Create requirements for MOM product selection
    • Determine Manufacturing Capability Maturity
  • Demarcation between Enterprise Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Operations Management (MES/MOM)
  • Concept Messaging and Alias Service Model (Part 6 and 7)
  • Conclusions and Wrap-Up

Note: The two sessions are scheduled on two consecutive days.
