MESA's B2MML and Integration Fundamentals Certificate of Competency Program details the elements involved in business-to-manufacturing integration using the MESA B2MML (Business To Manufacturing Markup Language) and ISA-95 standards.

Business system to manufacturing system integration projects involve multiple business departments, IT departments, and engineering departments making them a difficult project to coordinate and execute. The ISA-95 Enterprise/Control System Integration standards and the MESA B2MML schemas are effective tools for these projects. However, effective use of these tools requires 1) detailed knowledge of the business and shop floor / operations processes involved in integration, 2) knowledge of how the processes are interrelated through transactions, and 3) representing exchanged information in a commonly understood format. As a result, MOM integration projects spend considerable time on isolated project discovery that re-defining of the operations interactions that are actually common interactions used across similar plants using similar technologies, business processes, and production processes.

IT organizations often view integration projects as just a technology problem, without an understanding of the impact that integration may have on existing manufacturing operations and their real-time work processes. To significantly reduce project time and effort, a good understanding is required of the 1) best practice integration methods and 2) best practice methods for integration requirements.

The course covers the following areas:

  • The typical IT environment used in integration projects and the IT tools used for integration
  • A discussion on typical business process that require integration, the business terminology typically used, and how shop floor/operations system work through transactions that support the business processes
  • A definition of the B2MML elements that are used in integration projects, including Process/Operations Segments, Properties, Schedules, Product/Operations Definitions, and Material
  • Methods and techniques for mapping data from modern and legacy systems into the common B2MML format
  • A definition of the ways to extend the basic B2MML definitions for projects

This is a comprehensive program for MES/MOM Consultants, System Analysts, Industrial IT Architects, Programmers, and Project Managers.

A Competency Test will be administered for the program, requiring a 85% score or higher in order to receive the program’s Certificate of Competency. There are two parts to the B2MML Competency Test:

  1. In-course test consisting of 20 questions answered as the course progresses
  2. Post-course test consisting of 20 questions answered within eight weeks after course completion

This program will be taught by Gerard Ipskamp, MESA Authorized Instructor.
