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.
