says, "It's going to get bloody."
The heart of the challenge for
the past decade has involved quick
transfer of critical plant data to operators, maintenance personnel, and plant
management. For some time, industrial networking
and interoperable plant-floor platforms prevented
data exchanges that provided actionable items for
operators and managers.
Advances in industrial networking technologies,
however, including encrypted messaging based
don the industry operability standard OPC UA
(opcfoundation.org), has moved manufacturers
to data solutions that don't involve ripping out
existing infrastructure. Also, ISA-95 has provided a
standardized interface process for moving control
data from the plant floor, i.e., from manufacturing
execution systems (MES) to business enterprises.
According to Charlie Gifford, senior advanced
manufacturing consultant and contributing member
of the ISA-95 Manufacturing Operations Management Working Group, "As explained at the recent
ISA-95/International Electrotechnical Commission
(IEC) meeting, BHP Billiton presented the application of ISA-95 as a corporate Industrie 4.0 standard
and how they invested $2 million (US) dollars in the
upgrade of ISA-95."
As part of the smart manufacturing initiative
within ISA-95, major updates include Parts 2, 4, and
5, along with the new standards for Parts 8 and 9,
the smart manufacturing framework. In conjunction with this effort, the ISA-95 Process-Centric
Message Working Group created an "event-driven
architecture" for IIoT applications that decreases
data movement between systems.
"If I send an order to the quality lab using the
typical request-response messaging approach, there
can be anywhere from four to ten messages sent as
part of request-response messages," said Gifford.

In a recent ProFood article

identifying 20 to 30 common
operation events (Level 3) in the
new Part 9 of the ISA-95 standard.
"Those common 30 Level 3 operation
events-dispatching production, scheduling,
reliability, etc.-we're defining the data sets and
objects, so when those events occur, I simply publish
the whole block of information for the event in one
message," he explained.
