Abstract: “The market globalization and the rapid development of ICT force the chemical industry to new challenges that require enterprise reengineering, introducing new forms of organization, as well as quickly and successfully innovation processes. Main means to cope with these new challenges are the approaches, methods and tools of industrial informatics, which are characterized by great diversity and versatility. This paper aims to provide an overview and analysis of some of the most successful achievements of the industrial informatics in the chemical industry sector in order to achieve better selection and development of combined approaches and scenarios enhancing the agility and efficiency in this sector.”

Comments: this review mentions CAPE-OPEN as one of the technologies of industrial informatics supporting integration. Tge author recognizes that “The CAPE-OPEN project is the first effort of its kind in the domain of chemical engineering.” No assessment of CAPE-OPEN is made; it is mentioned along with other standards like for example ANSI/ISA-S88. Still it shows that CAPE-OPEN is an industry standard.
