PERA web site for enterprise integration

09/01/2001


West Lafayette, Ind. -The Purdue Enterprise Reference Architecture (PERA) website's ( www.pera.net ) mission is to provide a reference site for PERA materials, and a forum for sharing information on recent developments and products in Enterprise Master Planning and Systems Integration. Intended visitors to this site are computer and telecommunications network professionals, control engineers, enterprise management, and project managers who are responsible for the design of industrial and corporate control and communication systems. Purdue University professor Theodore Williams provided the guiding hand in the development of the Purdue Reference Model for computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) and PERA. The PERA site is being developed and hosted by Professor Williams and Gary Rathwell.

Visitors to the PERA site will find available for viewing and downloading:

  • The PERA Enterprise Model including the three main components of any enterprise: production facilities, people, and control and information systems;

  • The Purdue Reference Model for CIM;

  • Basic concepts to help design and execute enterprise control and information systems including: project execution principles, master planning, architecture levels, and reference architectures;

  • Other enterprise models and methodologies;

  • Relevant enterprise integration standards;

  • Engineering tools used to design and implement enterprise architectures; and

  • Risk factors in design and operation of enterprises.
