    19 Currently, plant design software has no industry-wide standard for interoperation.  This means that when information needs to be transferred between applications, some means must be developed from scratch, taking care to preserve the meaning of all the data values.

    2121This is true even for applications within one vendor's portfolio.  Applications may have been developed over different time periods, or acquired from other vendors.  With no industry-wide standard for exchanging information, point-to-point data exchanges are often the only alternative, leading to a Confederation of Applications joined by custom maps.  But a network of point-to-point data maps are just as difficult to maintain for a software vendor as for any other organization. 
     
    2323But if the software developer instead adopts ISO 15926 as the protocol for transferring information, the individual applications are encapsulated, or decoupled from the System Landscape.  Each application can be updated on its own schedule without impacting any other application.

    2727Developing a data model for plant applications is not a trivial matter.  If improperly designed, the data model can constrain the utility of the eventual software.   But the data model and templates for ISO 15926 are already developed, and since they are open source can be used without incurring royalties and without legal risk.
