New Versions of B2MML and BatchML Released

Companies interested in following ISA-95 for integration projects may use B2MML to integrate business systems such as ERP and supply chain management systems with manufacturing systems such as control systems and manufacturing execution systems. B2MML is a complete implementation of ISA-95.

The ISA-88 standard is recognized worldwide as the standard for the batch processing industry. BatchML provides a set of XML type and element definitions that may be used in part or in whole for batch, master recipe, site and general recipe, production record and equipment data. BatchML is an excellent tool to use when exchanging ISA-88 based data. Any company may use BatchML royalty free, provided credit is given to MESA.

Starting with V0401, the BatchML schemas were integrated into the B2MML namespace and BatchML now uses the B2MML common and extension files. Therefore B2MML schema and documentation downloads include BatchML files.

The MESA XML Committee maintains B2MML and BatchML. It is fully staffed by volunteers and is open to all interested parties. To join the committee or to send feedback on B2MML or BatchML, send a request to b2mml@mesa.org.
