When Worlds Collide in Manufacturing Operations

When Worlds Collide in Manufacturing Operations

Author: Charlie Gifford Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/05/2020

Book 2.0 is the second collection of public methodology white papers from the ISA-95/MESA Best Practices Working Group. The methodology white papers focus on applying the ISA-95 standards to accelerate the adoption of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) systems and the Manufacturing 2.0 Architecture (Mfg 2.0) approach. There is a focus on how to build a Manufacturing Transformation Strategy where manufacturers discover that using MOM systems combined with continuous improvement methods dramatically accelerate transformation and time-to-benefit. The business benefits from optimizing operations are realized by structuring plant workflows in ISA-95 models as a common definition foundation for Mfg 2.0 architecture. This enforces effective data structure, definition, integrity and governance across manufacturing applications. Book 2.0 explains how to implement ISA-95 workflow applications in Mfg 2.0 to execute operations tasks through the MOM and physical process levels while coordinating them to streamline plant operations and align those operations with ever-changing supply chain processes.

MOM Chronicles ISA-95 Best Practices Book 3.0

Author: Charlie Gifford Format: eBook Release Date: 19/02/2013

Springing from the international success of Books 1.0 and 2.0, the ISA-chartered ISA-95 Best Practices Working Group, chaired by Charlie Gifford, brings out its third collection of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) methodology white papers. The Book 3.0 collection focuses on MOM system engineering to organize the complex 21st-century manufacturing plant and to optimize its role in a global supply chain. The methods do not trivialize the complexities as simply equipment optimization or material quality or consumption problems. In the twenty-year evolution of computerized manufacturing solutions, most manufacturers primarily applied and still apply point solutions to department issues. Book 3.0 explains how to develop an overall operations process definition. This definition determines operations dependencies for the entire plant in the supply network. The operations process definition as the MOM Master User Requirement Specification maps out the "e;As-Is"e; inefficient operations and the "e;To-Be"e; reengineered efficient operations. Current leaders and managers of most manufacturers have a very limited vision of how their plants must operate in the global market in five or ten years to be competitive in 2020-2025. Today's manufacturing managers generally do not have a concept of the total engineering cost to transform their paper-based operations into real-time manufacturing using artificial intelligence for their work processes. The proven reality of manufacturing operations is that manufacturing innovation requires an iterative continuous improvement process through MOM systems engineering. This requires leaders to accept innovation with managed risk to move manufacturing operations technologies forward. Operations intelligence is high-risk innovation. Period. But by 2025, those manufacturers who have not adopted paperless processes for intelligent operations will simply not be able to compete globally and will fail in business. Book 3.0 lays out the foundation to succeed.

Hitchhiker's Guide to Manufacturing Operations Management: ISA-95 Best Practices Book 1.0

Author: Charlie Gifford Format: eBook Release Date: 20/08/2012

Do you want to dramatically lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for manufacturing IT architectures and manufacturing, as well as reduce supply chain operational costs? The methodologies and technical applications presented in this first annual ISA-95/MESA Best Practices book will help get you started on the right track. This book provides in-depth coverage on how you can apply ISA-95, Enterprise-Control Integration Standard, to help lower TCO of manufacturing operations management (MOM) systems and their enterprise and plant interfaces. It consists of a series of related "e;how-to"e; white papers described in the context of ISA-95 models, definitions, and data exchanges. To be competitive, actual manufacturing operations activities must be highly interactive in supply chain and enterprise processes for effective collaboration and competition. This is the domain of collaborative and flexible MOM system architectures. This book explains the business cases for using evolving ISA-95 methods to effectively design, implement, change and optimize the MOM business processes and supporting MOM system architectures within the distributed pull supply chains.
