IFS, the global enterprise applications company, was selected by the FIATECH Conference Planning Committee to present on Eco-footprint Management during the track on Achieving Success in Safety, Sustainability and Energy Efficiency. The FIATECH 2010 Conference is March 29-31 in Houston, TX.
During the event, IFS will also participate in a special meeting for software developers chaired by FIATECH Director Dr. Richard H.R. Jackson. The meeting will provide an opportunity for software developers to discuss common issues that FIATECH, as a community can address, in particular, the ISO 15926 standard.
According to the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 15926 specifies a representation of information associated with engineering, construction and operation of process plants. This representation supports the information requirements in all phases of a plant’s lifecycle and the sharing and integration of information among all parties involved in the plant’s lifecycle.
FIATECH is an association of companies that build large assets such as refineries, power plants, large commercial buildings, or manufacturing facilities. Members of FIATECH also include leading providers of engineering, design, and construction services.
