Where can ISA95 be used for?

ISA-95 is the international standard for the integration of enterprise and control systems.

ISA-95 consists of models and terminology that can be used to determine which information has to be exchanged between systems for sales, finance and logistics and systems for production, maintenance and quality.

This information is structured in UML models, which are the basis for the development of standard interfaces between ERP and MES systems.

The ISA-95 standard can be used for several purposes, for example as a guide for the definition of user requirements, for the selection of MES suppliers and as a basis for the development of MES systems and databases.

The Concept is based on a free exchange of General, Technical and Commercial information. When there is a question anywhere in the world, ISA-95 gives the answer.

The mission is to develop a platform for Knowledge Development and to create a Knowledge Community for all who are interested in ISA-95. ISA-95.com functions as an organization where Leading Suppliers, System Integrators and End Users work together. They all have something in common: they want to work according the International Standard ISA-95.
