SYSTEM INTEGRATION INTECH JULY/AUGUST 2018 29 life-cycle reference model, the rounded rectangles represent the work process- es, or their deliverables, that are directly related to the life-cycle of automated procedures. The intended audience for this re- port includes technical and opera- tions managers and engineering per- sonnel who are responsible for the operation or automation of continu - ous process operations, members of engineering departments of owner operators, and engineering person - nel of engineering and procurement companies, automation vendors, sys - tem integrators, and other process engineering practitioners. Path forward In the two ISA-106 technical reports, the committee focused on the cur- rent state of the continuous process industries. ISA106 is now working on a requirements-based standard. The models and terminology in the first technical report will be reviewed and revised as needed, and the committee will factor in the experiences and ideas gained in usage. The standard will also reflect the work processes set forth in the new technical report. ISA106 is currently working on early drafts of the standard and welcomes new participants, especially end us- ers to share their expertise and experi- ences. The committee currently has 168 members, including 25 voting mem- bers, with 45 percent of members rep- resenting owner-operator companies. The authors also acknowledge ISA106 secretary Charlie Green and editor Dave Emerson. For more information, con- tact ISA106 co-chairs Yahya Nazer or Bill Wray.
