First S95 Standard Issued

The ISA has issued "S95 Part 1 : Models and Terminology" the first in their S95 series of standards for communication between plant control and "MIS" databases. The SP95 committee will continue to meet to develop further standards in this series.

Although SP95 does not address "horizontal" communication between different plant-level databases, and there are still no industry products which have implemented the standard, none-the-less, it represents a truly hopeful step for the Enterprise Integration industry.
