Welcome to the Make2Pack blog, called "Standard profits: Make2Pack and ISA88." Help committee members increase dialog about, completion of, interest in, and use of Make2Pack ISA-88 Part 5. Join in with your comments or questions to help the standard along, on your way to gaining competitive advantage.


Hi, I’m David Chappell, chair of the Make2Pack ISA-88 Part 5 standards development effort (Complete Manufacturing Automation Associates – LLC), and retired Proctor & Gamble section manager for batch technologies. I’m going to blog here, perhaps with comments from other committee members, to help facilitate increased communication, about and completion of, interest in, Make2Pack ISA-88 Part 5. Websites related to the effort are provided above. Join us to discuss, comment, participate, and generally help things along, so we can finish the standard and encourage implementation.

For blog entries, we’ll identify who’s talking; to comment or ask questions, please use the tools provided. Help us continue to define advantages of “Make2Pack’s S88.05: Continuous control to packaging.”
The Make2Pack site lists the sponsors and members in a PDF.

During our meetings, we generally do welcome and introductions, review recent Make2Pack efforts and calendar review, then define and discuss the next set deliverables.

Make2Pack goes beyond batch and packaging with intention to “develop conceptual models and terminology for industrial automation that can be consistently applied to the total manufacturing process,” as we’ve said on the Make2Pack site.
Interest is wide ranging. Members include end users, technology providers and system integrators, and original equipment manufacturers.

We meet online and in-person, raising issues that will be discussed in subsequent posts. Thanks for helping us extend that effort in this blog, to increase manufacturing and packaging efficiency.
