Enterprise Integration Standards
The following are a number of Key Enterprise Integration Standards. This list
is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather to describe some of the more important
standards, and to direct the reader to additional information on each. The Standards
are presented alphabetically, according to the Standards body responsible for
writing and maintaining these standards.
For more a more detaild list of Enterprise Integration standard see The Engineering
Work Book, which lists several thousand Enterprise Integration standards
from the USA and abroad. In keeping with the PERA structure, the Engneering
Work Book Standards are organized according to the Discipline (Role) responsible
for implementing that standard. For Enterprise Integration, the main Discipline
Groups (Roles) are: 770-Control Systems, 780-Industrial Computing (including
MES), and 790-Industrial Telecom.
APICS - American Production and
Inventory Control Society
is a "not-for-profit" membership group serving industry with supply chain and
operations management educational and reference materials as well as courses
- The APICS Dictionary

- CEN TC310 WG1 is the working group that deals with Enterprise Modelling for Computer
Integrated Manufacturing within TC310, the technical committee for
Advanced Manufacturing Technologies.
TC310 has primarily focused on discrete manufacturing.
- CEN work is coordinated with ISO

In December 1993, the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) released IDEF O as a standard for Function Modeling. This was later extended
with standardsIDEF 1 to IDEF 10, but was withdrawn in 2002. IDEF 0 to IDEF 5

by ISO 15926 .
XML is the universal format for structured documents on the web.
XML is a subset of SGML which was developed by IBM. XML was issued by the W3C
Consortium in 1998. It is has received rapid acceptance at all levels in

It is also the basis for many related
standards. including BPMN and B2MML
TIA / EIA Telecommunications Industry Association / Electronic Industries
- The TIA/EIA 568
TIA/EIA 568 Commercial Building Telecommunication standard was jointly developed
by TIA and EIA.
- The ISO/IEC-11801
Generic Customer Premises Cabling standard is an international cabling standard,
based on the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568, that may be used for industrial control systems
and premises cabling.
- The TIA/EIA 568
TIA/EIA 568 structured cabling standards define how to design, build, and
manage a Structured Cabling System (SCS). An SCS has specific performance
characteristics at each hierarchical level. For example, a workgroup LAN haslower-performance
requirements than the building backbone network, which may in turn connect
to a high speed single or multimode fiber-optic network.
- Category 5 TIA/EIA 568A and 568B Configuration
is not an enterprise integration standard, but very handy if you need to make
an ethernet cable to connect something ! )
