OMAC packaging group meets at ISA Expo 2005


OMAC seeks to increase return on investment for industry by working with end-users, OEMs, and suppliers by developing industry guidelines for packaging applications. The organization is updating progress at ISA Expo 2005, “OMAC’s Packaging Guidelines– Increasing the ROI for Industry,” Tuesday, Oct. 25, 3:30-5 p.m.

The session intends to cover the latest on guidelines recently developed and underway in:

  • Common interface language (such as naming conventions for communications) between production machinery within the packaging industry, including adaptation of ISA-88 standards;

  • Control architecture platforms and connectivity options for greater packaging machine automation interoperability;

  • Common software elements and structures within industry languages for improved packaging machinery interoperability;

  • Justifying automation return on investments; and

  • Defining and satisfying the educational and training needs of industry.

OMAC’s Packaging working committees are PackSoft, PackConnect, PackML, PackAdvantage, PackLearn, and Make2Pack.
