InTech;Jan2006, Vol. 53 Issue 1, p58
The article focuses on the collaboration of the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA) with MESA International in January 2006 in order to support the ISA-95 standard. ISA-95 is significant because of the concerns regarding plant integration in manufacturing models of the twentieth century. Companies in the U.S. start to recognize that their manufacturing models are experiencing changes. They need to have a better way to communicate to augment their skills in making decisions in terms of running their businesses.
