ANSI/ISA-95 (S95) Consultancy

The international standard ANSI/ISA-95 (S95), was introduced in 1995 to resolve the issues encountered in the integration of enterprise and control systems. The standard provides a common understanding of terminology, information exchange, workflows, best practices, models and activities and functions. ISA-95 is relevant to all manufacturing and processing industries, and the principles can be applied to batch, continuous, discrete or repetitive processes using different technologies.

The ANSI/ISA-95 (S95) standard consists of models and terminology, used to establish which information can be transferred between the sales and finance ERP systems and the production, maintenance and quality MES systems. This information is organised in models, which form the basis for the design of interfaces between the ERP and MES systems.

With extensive experience in the design and implementation of MES systems following the ANSI/ISA-95 (S95) standard, ITS offers advice and consultancy to help companies get the most from the standard. We also have a team of engineers, experienced in the successful integration of enterprise ERP systems with MES and control systems.

Companies following the ISA-95 standard benefit from a common understanding, which enables employees responsible for different types of systems to communicate effectively with one another. The standard increases simplicity, provides best practice across the site and reduces risk and misunderstanding, which in turn reduces the integration process and cost.  

ISA-95 (S95) Training Courses

ITS also offers open and onsite ISA-95 (S95) training courses.  The courses offer an overview of the ISA-95 (S95) standard and help learners to visualise the purpose of the individual functional modules that constitute the various forms of manufacturing system, and how they interact with each other. 

The learners will understand how manufacturing systems bridge the gap between corporate systems and equipment control, and identify the data interchanges involved at the ‘manufacturing/corporate boundary’ and the ‘manufacturing/equipment control boundary’.
