SmartPlant Enterprise is a comprehensive product suite of next-generation plant software. It offers increasing value from IT to improve project execution, handover, and plant efficiency.
SmartPlant Foundation is the world's most proven, industry-standard engineering information management solution in the process, power, and marine industries.
Intergraph has been, and continues to be, an active contributor to the ISO 15926 industry standardization initiatives of POSC-Caesar and FIATECH since their inceptions. Through the combined POSC-Caesar-IDS and FIATECH-ADI umbrella projects, Intergraph is leading those activities which are defining pragmatic ISO 15926 compliance levels and practical engineering business mapping methodologies.
The Superior Technical Achievement Award (STAR) was established to recognize the personal contributions of FIATECH members who have given immensely of their own time and energy to help FIATECH achieve its vision. Each year, FIATECH honors those individuals whose leadership, commitment, participation, and sacrifice of personal time has advanced our goals and benefitted the capital projects industry. Without these people, FIATECH would not be the internationally recognized and respected organization that it is today.
Allen Egnor, executive manager at Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, received the award on April 26, 2011 in recognition of his work in bringing together two proof of concepts for iRING in recent years. These were not just on the Intergraph side, but also collaborating and supporting others.
“Without his successful persistence, the current interest and forward motion likely would not have been sustained. Allen tirelessly provided support and technical competence over the years. He has also provided support for the Proteus (Matrix 1, 2, 3 XMpLant) demo, as well as iRing, providing strong leadership with a level of balance and objectivity that is pretty rare. There was a lot of work behind the scenes by Allen to ensure those went well. Without his help, these simply would not have shown integration with Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise,” said Ray Topping, director of FIATECH.
Intergraph and its SmartPlant® Enterprise integrated solutions support ISO 15926. SmartPlant Foundation is the information management and integration component of SmartPlant Enterprise. The underlying SmartPlant Foundation data model has shared a common basis with ISO 15926 Part 2 since their joint origins in the 1990s.
SmartPlant Foundation therefore has proven implementation data structures, using Interfaces and Views that enable engineering business-friendly views and mappings of the highly generic object-relational schema. These mature implementations are directly equivalent to the latest ISO 15926 Part 7 Template methods, which apply at external interfaces, independent of actual internal product schemas.
As a result, Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise interfaces are able to support compliance with ISO 15926 from the simplest 15926 Part 4 Reference Data Library exchange mappings to the most sophisticated managed interoperability capabilities conceived by ISO 15926.
