Germanedge and the ISA -95

ISA-95 is the international standard for the integration of business and control systems. By using this standard, a company-wide perspective can be given to system integration, allowing you to carry out thousands of actions and data collections and summarize them in an understandable framework. It focuses on activities and is intended to define and integrate activities between business and ERP on the one hand and MES, MOM and operations management on the other hand.
The ISA-95 model can be used to determine which information needs to be exchanged between systems for sales, finance and logistics, and systems for production, maintenance and quality. The ISA-95 standard can be used for various purposes, for example as a guideline for defining user requirements, for the selection of MES suppliers or as a basis for the development of MES systems and databases.

ISA95 pyramid

The ISA-95 framework consists of 5 levels:

  • Level 0
    The actual physical processes.
  • Level 1
    Detecting and manipulating the physical processes.
  • Level 2
    Monitoring and controlling the physical processes.
  • Level 3
    The workflow to produce the desired end products.
  • Level 4
    Business-related activities required to manage a manufacturing operation.

The Germanedge Group is mainly in level 3 of this complete framework. By working with all 5 companies, each with its own additional specialties, Germanedge can fill in the complete picture of level 3 and can offer a very extensive product.
