    v18 v19  
    1111It has been under development in various forms for many years, and has had many proof-of-concept trials.  When the standard is mature, any Owner, EPC, Vendor or Constructor will be able to exchange information seamlessly with its business partners, regardless of the commercial plant design software that is used.

    1515Think of all the times we have to copy information from here to there. Even though we get our information today in electronic form rather than printed catalogues, and often over the Internet, it still boils down to someone reading a document, figuring out what it means, deciding what is important, and manually transcribing the appropriate parts to some other document. 
     
    2121ISO 15926 is based on a counterintuitive idea:

    2525Traditionally when we exchange information we first try to know as much as possible about each other’s systems. We carefully examine each other’s data objects so that we know what they mean, and to exploit fortunate idiosyncrasies. We think we are being smart, and of course we are, but the cost is that we are forever locked into the particular software versions of the applications at each end of the exchange; if we change anything the information exchange may break. 
     
    3030As we represent more and more of our information in industry standard form, the logical conclusion is the rather magical sounding phrase:

    3434So that’s easy to say, but we've been working on this for decades.  How does it work?
