ISO 15926 - MPDS4 Plant Design Data Export Service - CAD Schroer
About ISO 15926
The ISO 15926 standard, entitled “Industrial automation systems and integration—Integration of life-cycle data for process plants including oil and gas production facilities” addresses the need for process plant designers (among others) to integrate, share and exchange data across different computers and software systems. Many industry groups and developers are involved in delivering the tools necessary for software vendors to offer their clients a means to transfer their complex data to a format readable by other systems.
MPDS4 Plant Design Data Export and Post Processing
In order to meet this data exchange requirement, a neutral XML file can be exported from MPDS4, containing a fully described plant model and structured in the ISO 15926 proscribed hierarchy, with typical attributes attached to the geometry. The data can then be post processed into many other systems at two levels: as a series of equipment models; or as equipment models and catalog instances. This ISO 15926 transfer is available as a service from CAD Schroer.
The ISO 15926 Transfer Service
There are a number of software and structural prerequisites for extracting XML from MPDS4. The target system requires a data verification and clean-up process to ensure that the information transferred from our customers’ MPDS4 catalogs and models is as accurate and useful as possible. Any components that are too complex for the receiving system must be simplified, and limits as to the number of vertices, faces and objects must be adhered to. Our consultants use two licensed toolsets for this process.
Meeting Your Unique Requirements
The MPDS4 customers who typically use this service tend to be Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers to the world’s largest oil, gas, power and utility companies. We work with customers to ensure that the data transferred meets their exact requirements and those of their clients, partners or suppliers. We can determine the component detail level required, and test the results in different systems. For more information, simply get in touch for a no-obligation chat and quotation.
