The CAPE-OPEN Laboratories Network (CO-LaN) is the internationally recognized
user-driven organisation for the testing and management of the CAPE-OPEN
standard. The standard defines rules and interfaces that allow CAPE
(Computer-Aided Process Engineering) applications or components to interoperate.
CO-LaN also helps to facilitate implementation of standard interfaces in
The missions of the CO-LaN are:
User priorities for CAPE-OPEN standards: work with software
vendors to clarify user priorities for process modelling software
component/environment interoperability and also to promote communication and
cooperation among CAPE software vendors to insure that the CO standards actually
translate into commercially valuable interoperability;
CAPE-OPEN interface specifications life cycle management:
organize the maintenance, evolution, and expansion of the specifications;
Testing, interoperability facilitation: supply compliance
testers to support development of components, organize interoperability tests
between suppliers of PMCs (Process Modelling Components) and PMEs (Process
Training/Migration facilitation: ensure that training modules,
guidelines and tools to facilitate component wrapping are developed and
