The SIMATIC IT family of products from SIEMENS A&D AS MES, addresses the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) market. One of the products is explicitly aimed for manufacturing execution management.The ISA 95 standard is of highest relevance for products targeting this market since the standard addresses the Manufacturing Operations domain as well as its integration with the Business systems domain.The MES market was identified in the late 80-ies and for quite some years, this was undiscovered and virgin territory. Entering, as a vendor, in this new an unexploited market can be tough. The launch of a good product is required in order to be successful, however, launching a good product that is in line with the newest and hottest standards promises for an even more successful start.The paper presents and discusses – in a vendor neutral way - how a standard can be used from a vendor’s perspective and it lists some of the benefits recognized when applying a standard to a product.
