New Enterprise Integration Development Projects
The following are "open" initiatives that are intended to develop
standards, methodologies and/or tools to more effectively implement Enterprise
Integration projects. These development projects may be undetaken by standards
groups (e.g. ISA or MESA), research organizations (like Purdue or MIT), or collaborative
industry groups (like API or EPRI). Only "Open" development projects
are included. These Open Projects offer their results to all participants and
(preferably) to all enterprises. Proprietary "in-house" development
programs are not included.
If you click on any of the links below, you will see a short discsussion of
the development project, and/or a link to the development group's website. Where
possible, we will also include a link to an e-learning course for those who
wish to have a more detailed understanding.
Reference Architecture Framework - Nov. 2013
This is a project of the IT Architecture SIG of MIMOSA. It provides:
It is intended for the upstream Oil & Gas industry, downstream Petrochemical
industry, and for Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) projects.
- a Reference Architecture Framework (RAF) for Integrated Engineering
- a guide for defining and designing new IT systems
- and a classification system for describing existing IT infrastructure
The primary objective of EDRC is to establish a common understanding across
industry projects of how to use ISO 15926 and how to assess software
conformance to specified ISO 15926 data structures and capabilities. Collaboration
with MIMOSA on the OGI Pilot is a cornerstone of this project. EDRC will
focus on a narrow scope limited to equipment and system data that is common
with the OGI Pilot and HEED project, and consistent with the objectives of
ISO 15926 Information Patterns (IIP) project.
EDRC provides downloadable software to for "Equipment Data Requirements
Capture" using ISO 15926, including Assessing Conformance.
The EDRC project is run by FIATECH in cooperation with the POSC Caesar Association,
for the benefit of the entire capital projects industry.

The status of each standard development is indicated,including expected publishing
The above web link provides a list of standards that are being currently developed
by IEC concerning:
- IEC 61804 Process Control Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL)
- IEC 61987 Industrial Process Measurement and Control - Data Structures
and Elements in Process Equipment Catalogues
- IEC 62264 Enterprise Control System Integration: Objects and attributes
for manufacturing operations management integration
- IEC 62453 Field Device Tool (FDT) Interface Specification
- IEC 62451 OPC Unified Architecture
- IEC 62714 Engineering data exchange format for use in industrial automation
systems engineering (Automation Markup Language)
- IEC 62769 Devices and integration in enterprise systems
- OGI Pilot
Prototype implementation of a full set of Oil Field systems, including standardized
databases and communications protocols.
Standards Leadership Counsel
Was established to coordinate oil industry automation and systems standards.
Founding rganizations were: Energistics, PPDM Association, PIDX, Open Geospatial
Consortium, OPC Foundation, PODS, POSC Caesar Association, and MIMOSA. SLC
will meet twice a year to coordinate efforts on standards.
- ISA 108 Intelligent Device Management
An "umbrella" standard that is meant to incorporate other standards
and to provide Work Processes to incorporate these standards through all Enterprise
Phases, from Engineering through Operations and Maintenance. It consists of
Part 1: Concepts and Terminology (2nd Draft Done)
- Part 2: Work Process Specifications
- Part 2.1: Configuration and Revision Management
- Part 2.2: Diagnostics Management
- Part 2.3: Field Procedure Management
- Part 3.x: Implementation Guide
In most cases, assistance is available from the support organizations listed
on the websites above.
