ISA-95 Is Necessary for Smart Manufacturing

An information model used to define the interface between control functions and other enterprise functions, ISA-95 does not become dated over time the way technology would. It provides a smarter way to push ahead.

What impact will the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have on your plant floor data? Smarter manufacturing is the intention. There is a belief floating around that the move toward IIoT will flatten the ISA-95 information model, thus making the standard obsolete. I’m here to offer a differing view, and explain why it matters.
