ISA-95 provides a standard manner to describe the flow of information between Manufacturing Operatipons Management (MOM) and Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems.
The following topics are covered:

  • Overview and concepts
  • Fundamentals which cover meta-model mapping and ISA95 reference
  • ISA-95 Data Representation Model
  • ISA-95 Base Information Model
  • ISA-95 Common Object Model and OPC UA References
  • OPC UA Profiles


Technical overview

Responsible for the definition and maintenance of the ISA-95 OPC UA information model. The first release (in early 2013) of the ISA-95 OPC UA companion specification includes support for the following ISA-95 models:

  • Physical Assets
  • Equipment
  • Personnel and Material Handling.

This mapping of the abstract ISA-95 model provides a high-speed, secure information flow from the lowest levels of the automation hierarchy to Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. ISA-95 was developed for transferring information in Level 3 and 4 of the enterprise; the OPC UA mapping allows this information to be securely transferred between levels 3 and 4 and to be extended down to Level 2 of the enterprise.
