When worlds collide.....

The International Society of Automation (ISA) has published When Worlds Collide in Manufacturing Operations: ISA-95 Best Practices Book 2.0, by Charlie Gifford, editor and contributing author.

Gifford’s publication is based on the ISA-95/MESA Best Practices Working Group’s 2.0 Methodology Papers. It includes a collection of best practices for transforming a manufacturing company and its manufacturing systems into a structured form to compete globally in the 21st century.

Book 2.0 explains how to implement ISA-95 workflow applications in Manufacturing 2.0 Architecture (Mfg 2.0) to execute operations tasks through the Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and physical process levels while coordinating them to streamline plant operations and align those operations with ever-changing supply chain processes.

It is a collection of white papers, each focusing on a specific component of the manufacturing transformation. These white papers have been authored by subject-matter experts from 14 countries, and peer-reviewed by expert reviewers from 13 countries.

As an industry expert in professional organizations such as ISA, the Supply Chain Council and Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) International, Gifford has contributed to and taught many manufacturing operations standards, such as ISA-88, ISA-95, Next Gen MESA and Supply-Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) models. Gifford has published over 40 papers and four books on the subject of operations and management best practices. He was awarded the 2007 MESA International Outstanding Contributor Award and 1995 Captain’s Citation Award for Innovation.
