The International Society of Automation (www.isa.org) is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure. Founded in 1945, ISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 36,000 members and 350,000 customers around the world.
ISA owns Automation.com, a leading online publisher of automation-related content, and is the founding sponsor of The Automation Federation (www.automationfederation.org), an association of non-profit organizations serving as “The Voice of Automation.” Through a wholly owned subsidiary, ISA bridges the gap between standards and their implementation with the ISA Security Compliance Institute (www.isasecure.org) and the ISA Wireless Compliance Institute (www.isa100wci.org).

ISA’s products and services are organized by technical topic – a selection of technologies, trends, and areas of focus that are relevant to your on-the-job performance:
The data structure arrangement allows multiple enterprises to be divided into multiple sites, areas, process cells and units. This is suitable for both the grass roots engineering disciplines and the plant maintenance engineers and technicians for managing initial design data and long term maintenance data for each instrument. The transition from the design to the maintenance of the instruments couldn’t be easier.
Included within the application software are displays to import data from other software formats to initially populate the instrument index. You can add new instrument tag numbers in the instrument index, prepare ISA data sheet specifications (1981 and 2007 formats), and assign tags to scheduled preventive maintenance. In the maintenance module, you can log the "As Found" and "As Left" field data collected for each analog instrument as well as log service comments. The software includes advanced capabilities for maintaining a robust instrument index that defines over 120 instrument attributes including drawing references, calibration ranges, set point, serial number, associated equipment, systems, links to a document book for drawing cross referencing and opening for viewing, and more. Many database display fields have a "type-ahead" feature with pick lists attached to enable selecting pre-programmed field data values. The 2007 specification format includes pre-programmed data field drop down pick lists values compiled with over 60,000 pre-programmed pick items for ease of selection. Outputs are included to print directly to a display, portable document format “pdf” or printer for instrument index lists with different sort and filter selections. Included are utilities to determine available loop numbers, quick I/O type lists, system grouping and many specialty reports. Links to web sites for manufacturer, vendor and model number, and password access level for unit level record edit, view, print and file utilities as well as audit trail activation are included.
This application software includes modules to manage electrical motor schedules and specifications, mechanical equipment lists and specifications, piping line lists and systems. Also included is an interface to the PROCOMSOL® HART configuration software to provide data storage for each instrument's HART configuration data.
Adding this application software will enhance your instrumentation documenting system for small, medium and large instrument systems as a standalone or multi-site installation.
