Welcome to 15926.org, the home of an industrial data modelling team implementing the ISO 15926 interoperability standard.

 The scope of ISO 15926 is "Integration of life-cycle data for process plants, including oil and gas production facilities".

 Of course that is not a goal in itself, but it serves two main purposes:
 * global interoperability, defined as:
        "a characteristic of a product or system, whose interfaces are completely understood,
        to work with other products or systems, present or future, in either implementation or access, without any restrictions."
        This allows applications and systems, used globally during the life of a facility, to share information.
 * archiving, collecting and integrating plant life-cycle information that can be used for:
     -  operations optimalization
     the next revamp
     knowledge mining
     root cause analysis

 This website provides ample exegesis of ISO 15926 Parts 2, 4, 7, 8, (9) and 10. See 'Topics' in the top bar.

 It also explains how the standard can be implemented with W3C Semantic Web technologies.
 ISO 15926 is generic and can, given a domain-specific vocabulary, be used for other domains, such as patient registers in the medical domain.
