The 2005 meeting gathered 50 participants for two days of presentations and discussions. The agenda covered basic information about CAPE-OPEN and CO-LaN, reports on recent implementation and interoperability successes.
The primary purpose of CO-LaN is to promote the use and the development of the CAPE-OPEN standards in Computer-Aided Process Engineering (CAPE) software, and more generally to encourage all actions aimed at facilitating the use of CAPE software tools in industry, government agencies and academia.
A thorough inspection of plant equipment following tiny installations can prevent a lot of future problems. Go beyond just checking for compliance with drawings when looking at hardware and physically look at the equipment itself.
