SAP adopts ISA-95

SAP AG is addressing concerns about the lack of adoption of defined standards which is preventing the efficient movement of information from the shop floor execution layer to the enterprise business layer. SAP is starting with support for ISA-95 and is developing a roadmap for the adoption of process industry standards.

“Given SAP’s reputation in the global manufacturing ecosystem and the breadth of SAP’s manufacturing solutions, SAP’s support of any standards gives those standards immediate validation,” said Bob Mick, V.P. Emerging Technology, ARC Advisory Group. “We believe that the adoption rate of standards like ISA-95 can also be positively impacted should SAP decide to build the requirements into its solution.”
