PCA provides services for Reference Data according to the ISO 15926 standard "Industrial automation systems and integration—Integration of life-cycle data for process plants including oil and gas production facilities".

Access to the PCA Reference Data Library (RDL) is provided under the terms of the PCA Articles of Association, namely "Reference Data Libraries shall be open, i.e. .... they can be used by everyone for their own purpose, on equal terms."

Service Requests for RDS System Support and/or RDL Content Support are provided for registered users.

This page describes what those services are and how to access them.

RDS(System) & RDL(Content) Operational Support

The purpose of the RDS Operations Support is to ensure high quality and timely handling of requests made to/about/ the RDS (Reference Data Services) System and RDL (Reference Data Library) Content for identified customers. It is defined on ITIL® and the ISO 20000 Specification.

The services offered enable users, based on a common platform, to initiate Service Requests for system failure/ technical problems with the RDS tools/applications provided, user access and general problems encountered by users. The service also supports initiation of Change Requests (CR's) to the RDS System, as well as CR's concerning content development at Work In Progress (WIP) and the ISO 15925 Standard.

RDL Content Change will be operated by POSC Caesar (PCA), but the Operations Support Service supports the process, i.e. the handles incoming change requests logged as tickets in the rdssupport Trac and the delegation of tickets to PCA for operation. Please see: maintenance procedure for further information on this process.

In the RDS Operations Support FAQ you will find answers to common service questions. Create New Ticket describes how to access the RDS Operations Support and create a new ticket.
