- Multi-part effort
- Define in detail an abstract model of the enterprise, including manufacturing control functions and business functions, and its information exchange.
- Establish common terminology for the description and understanding of enterprise, including manufacturing control functions and business process functions, and its information exchange.
- Define electronic information exchange between the manufacturing control functions and other enterprise functions including data models and exchange definitions.
To create a standard that will define the interface between control functions and other enterprise functions based upon the Purdue Reference Model for CIM (hierarchical form) as published by ISA. The interface initially considered is the interface between levels 3 and 4 of that model. Additional interfaces will be considered, as appropriate. The goal is to reduce the risk, cost, and errors associated with implementing these interfaces. The standard must define information exchange that is robust, safe, and cost effective. The exchange mechanism must preserve the integrity of each system's information and span of control.
