The International Society of Automation (ISA) has published the third collection of its Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) methodology white papers designed to help manufacturers transform their paper-based processes into real-time operations intelligence, ISA said May 6.

“The MOM Chronicles: ISA-95 Best Practices Book 3.0” builds on the international books 1.0 and 2.0 and the progress made by the ISA-chartered ISA95 Best Practices Working Group in outlining prescriptive methods for applying MOM standards to advance manufacturing operations technologies.

The book explains how a standards-based framework can be established to create and maintain plant operations process definitions and rule sets so intelligence systems can accurately execute work processes for the entire plant and supply network in a cost-effective manner.

The MOM Chronicles 3.0 explains the standards and methods for supply chain-focused operations management systems, outlines how to construct the system requirements for a plant or set of plants, and defines roles and processes across the supply chain.
