General description

The technological development of information systems and telecommunications have greatly facilitated the incorporation and dynamic and optimal treatment of information, which has led to very powerful techniques for systematization and interoperability of production processes and decision-making processes in the organizations. Obviously, these developments have been applied to one of the most fundamental activities of the social process, namely: industrial production processes. And their final purpose is not limited to information processing, but rather aims to automate the entire process, integrating manufacturing and administration with a view to achieving what has been called "integration of production systems" or "business integration. ”.

Obtaining a comprehensive automation of production processes must take into account different aspects such as the process itself, the organizational structure of the company, resources and business management. In order to achieve an integrated system that handles the different aspects, it is necessary to have models of the organization's structure and its behavior that make it possible to demonstrate knowledge of the company's business processes.

Therefore, this course aims to study and apply the models and the methodological proposal posed by the ISA88 standard for the functional identification and development of industrial automation projects to benefit the improvement of production processes and intake processes. decision making in the organization.

Course Objectives:

  • Conceptualize and analyze the principles and terminology defined in the ISA-88 standard.
  • Study and understand the methodological proposal posed by the ISA-88 standard for the functional identification and development of industrial automation projects.
  • Apply the ISA-88 standard models in one of the units of a company production process.
  • Discuss the technical implications, advantages and fields of application under the principles and models of the ISA-88 standard.

Learning Methodology:

The concepts and models of the ISA-88 standard will be presented to understand the flexibility of its principles and the diversity of fields of application in the different phases of industrial automation projects. Similarly, in each of the scheduled sessions, the proposed models of the standard will be applied in one of the units of a company production process, with the aim of achieving a better understanding of the course topics.

To meet the proposed objectives, a scheduled hourly intensity of 24 hours is required.
