ISA-95 for IIoT gives architects a standard for integration

Industrial IoT processes increasingly base IoT implementations on the ISA-95 standard, which means organizations must understand what the standard does and doesn’t define.

Anyone involved in developing industrial IoT (IIoT) products should be familiar with ISA-95, the standard from the 74-year-old International Society of Automation (ISA), but what is ISA-95 and how does it work?

How to define ISA-95 for IIoT

As the name implies, work on ISA-95 started in 1995 and it continues to this day. ISA-95 defines the software interface between enterprise and control systems. Specifically, it defines semantics and operational models for how industrial control systems — also called manufacturing execution systems — exchange information with enterprise resource planning applications. ISA-95 comprises six key components, each of which builds on the other:
