MESA International Releases KPI Markup Language

MESA International, a global, not-for-profit community of manufacturers, producers, and solution providers, released a new XML markup language called KPI-ML. KPI-ML is based upon the ISO 22400 standard: Automation systems integration - Key performance indicators (KPIs) for manufacturing operations management.

According to MESA International, KPI-ML will help manufacturing companies implement the ISO 22400 standard thereby increasing the flow of key performance indicators within a business. This will enable manufacturing companies worldwide to reduce the cost of developing software for exchanging KPI data between systems, plants and business units.

KPI-ML consists of XML schemas allowing for a standard representation of generic KPI definitions, specific instances of use of KPIs (such as related to specific equipment), and KPI values for specific KPI instances. The information in KPI-ML is based on the data models and attributes defined in the ISO 22400 standards and complies with the ANSI/ISA 95 and IEC/ISO 62264 Enterprise-Control system integration standards.

KPI-ML continues MESA's work of developing markup languages to help manufacturing companies implement international standards by providing a common XML vocabulary based upon standards. Other MESA markup languages are B2MML (Business to Manufacturing Markup Language) based upon ANSI/ISA 95 and IEC/ISO 62264 and BatchML (Batch Markup Language) based upon ANSI/ISA 88 and IEC 61512. Both B2MML and BatchML are widely used in the manufacturing industry by operating companies, automation suppliers and IT companies providing a common actionable data framework to implement the standards.
