Received this notice from my old friend Charlie Gifford. I have not seen it yet, but I know the people and bet it’ll be a good read.

The ISA95 Best Practices Working Group, chartered by the International Society of Automation (ISA), has released its its third collection of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) methodology white papers as “The MOM Chronicles: ISA-95 Best Practices Book 3.0″. This collection focuses on MOM system engineering methods to organize the complex 21st-century manufacturing plant and to optimize its role in a global supply chain.

He’ll also be discussing the book with a Launch Webinar, “Transform Manufacturing Operations – A Discussion with the Chairman of the ISA-95 Best Practices Group.” This webinar is hosted by Northwest Analytics on March 7, 2013 from 11:00AM-12:00PM PST USA. Click to register.

Dedicated to Ray Bradbury

The paper collection in Book 3.0 is titled “The MOM Chronicles”, which is derived from the legendary work of The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. Our working group has dedicated the Book 3.0 collection to Ray Bradbury, who passed away on June 5, 2012. Ray Bradbury’s futuristic works were (are) a major influence in lives of many of today’s technologist and scientists who look for positive directions and ways to influence the world for the better.

The Book 3.0 collection addresses the need for true manufacturing system engineering methods to organize the complexities of the manufacturing operations.
The following are the white papers as book chapters:
Chapter 1: Applying Global MOM Systems in a Manufacturing 2.0 Approach
Chapter 2: The Role of Semantic Models in Smarter Industrial Operations
Chapter 3: Applying Manufacturing Operations Models in a Discrete Hybrid Manufacturing Environment
Chapter 4: Defining an Operations Systems Architecture
Chapter 5: A Workflow-driven Approach to MOM
Chapter 6: Scheduling Integration Using an ISA-95 Application in a Steel Plant
Chapter 7: Intelligent Integration Interface: I3, A Real-world Application of ISA-95
