This week at FIATECH, we are demonstrating this same high level of interoperability among our other design tools, as well as with our partners in the iRING community. This success validates our decision to embrace the ISO 15926 standard – not only to achieve seamless interoperability among the Bentley applications our users employ, but also to enable interoperability with third-party software and systems using a single standard interface. At the same time, we can provide our users with full and open access to their plant data without the need for a particular software provider’s application.”
Through the ISO 15926-based interoperability now available with Bentley AXSYS.Process, Bentley Data Manager, Bentley Instrumentation & Wiring, OpenPlant PowerPID, OpenPlant Modeler, and OpenPlant ModelServer products, control system vendors such as Emerson Process Management can benefit from error-free read/write data and information exchange. As a result, they can, for example, import all instrumentation data from Bentley’s P&ID applications, as well as add and export their control system data, which Bentley applications can then automatically acquire.
Added Adamson, “This level of interoperability means any supplier, EPC, or other infrastructure organization can be brought into a project at any phase, and if its software and systems have ISO 15926 interfaces, it can begin sharing information with other project participants immediately because all of the data is in a common standard format.”
