BPR "Naming of related Documents and their Versions" available

AutomationML e.V. is going to publish ‘Best Practice Recommendations’ to complement the AutomationML standard - IEC 62714 – and to give modelling guidelines for specific use cases.

The AutomationML standard series IEC 62714 "Engineering data exchange format for use in industrial automation systems engineering” already contains many use cases and guidelines of how system engineering information is modelled as well as which meta information could enhance the data excahnge.
In order to specify these definitons with examples, to apply them to specific use cases, and to facilitate the first steps with AutomationML, specific issues for the modelling of data in AutomationML are illustrated in Best Practise Recommendations (BPR). In addition, the BPR shall provide a consistent realization for specific use cases and shall, thus, complement the AutomationML standard documents.
BPRs are no subject of standardization but in case of a concretization of the IEC 62714 series the content could be included in it later on - within a maintenance cycle.

Download the new BPR: Naming of related Documents and their Versions .
Until now, there is no recommendation about how to enable the tool manufacturers to distinguish the different documents and versions which are used within an AutomationML file. This best practice recommendation describes how to name the recommendations and additional documentation and their versions within AutomationML so that all involved tools interpret the data in the same way.
