The OIIE enables organizations in asset intensive industries to bring their people, processes, systems and software spanning engineering, automation, operations and maintenance functions into alignment with each other, to achieve sustainable operational excellence along with improved operational and enterprise risk management. It establishes a breakthrough value proposition, enabling both existing Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) and bespoke applications to be used in a supplier-neutral, open specification ecosystem, supporting high priority industry use cases, without custom software development. The OIIE also helps organizations to manage, incremental adoption and migration spanning differing functional domains, Information Technologies and applications, with a consistent, yet adaptive approach to Information Management.
- The OIIE follows the Purdue Reference Architecture and provides a complete, Supplier-Neutral, Solutions Architecture, which enables organizations to directly implement their own OIIE instances.
- The OIIE is driven and defined by a portfolio of industry standard Use Cases, which are broken down into reusable, standardized OIIE scenarios.
- The standardized OIIE scenarios leverage a portfolio of published, supplier-neutral standards and specifications, which are used in a repeatable, scalable manner.
- Suppliers of Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) solutions build, license and maintain their own OIIE adaptors, substantially eliminating the need for traditional systems integration.
- Adaptors for bespoke or obsolete applications and systems can be developed on a cost effective basis using standardized scenarios, adaptor development methods and adaptor development kits.
- OIIE Administration is supplier neutral and logically independent from individual applications and supplier-specific, proprietary ecosystem administration.
- The OIIE leverages MIMOSA's industry leading CCOM information model for Life-cycle Asset Information Management and Associated Technical Master Data Management.
- The OIIE enables the use of Cloud Infrastructure and Software as a Service implementation models.
- OIIE implementations can be more secure, adaptable, sustainable and cost effective than most traditional systems integration efforts, due to the standardized development, testing and maintenance process, shared by the industry.
- The OIIE is developed and published by MIMOSA, in cooperation with multiple other industry standards organizations and key suppliers of industrial equipment, systems, software and services.
The Oil and Gas Interoperability (OGI™) Pilot
The publicly available, OGI Pilot is an instance of the OIIE, using Oil and Gas industry asset classes, which are also applicable to many other asset intensive industries, associated with critical infrastructure. The OGI Pilot demonstrates how the OIIE works and provides the Industry Interoperability Test-bed, largely eliminating the need for integration testing in individual implementations of the OIIE.
