Abstract:

The PIEBASE vision is: "Companies in the process industries shall be able to share and/or exchange electronically the information needed to design, build, operate and maintain process and power plants using internationally accepted standards. By the year 2000, this vision will be achieved for a high impact subset of this information." The process industries include chemicals, petroleum, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals/fine chemicals, power, and engineering support for these industries. This document describes the PIEBASE Roadmap for achieving defined milestones of industry data exchange capabilities. Current projects with goals of data exchange and of data sharing are addressed. The Roadmap also describes the paths to success for several projects which have been discussed but not yet started.
