Welcome to this 15926.blog about industrial data modelling and implementing the ISO 15926 interoperability standard.
The scope of ISO 15926 is "Integration of life-cycle data for process plants, including oil and gas production facilities".
Of course that is not a goal in itself, but it serves two main purposes:
- global semantic interoperability, defined as:
"Semantic interoperability is the ability of computer systems to exchange information with unambiguous, shared meaning.
It is a requirement to enable inferencing, knowledge discovery, and data federation between information systems."
This allows applications and systems, used globally during the life of a facility, to share information.
- archiving, collecting and integrating plant life-cycle information that can be used for:
- interoperability during day-to-day activities
- reasoning with integrated data
- CAE - Computer Aided Engineering
- Digital Twin software
- knowledge mining
- operations optimization
- root cause analysis
- the next revamp
It also explains how the standard can be implemented with W3C Semantic Web technologies.
ISO 15926 is generic and can, given a domain-specific vocabulary, be used for other domains.
