XML/B2MML structures consistent with ISA-88 and ISA-95 models, optimized and adapted to the business requirements
B2MML defines XML data structures from ISA-88 and ISA-95 models to facilitate communication between industrial IT applications. Many manufacturers adopt it as their supporting infrastructure for interoperability, favoring open and scalable interfaces with clear guidelines for integration.
Knowledge of standards and XML/B2MML technology applied with a proven method allows to design interfaces that minimize costs and risks, aligned with the language of the industrial system.

Objectives of B2MML mastery

  • Select, develop or identify ISA-88 and ISA-95 structures suitable for the different types of messages
  • Harnessing the power of the W3C XML Schema specification
  • Implement namespaces and extensions
  • Beyond B2MML: create a verticalised XML schemata to optimize the semantic alignment with the business


  • Assistance in handling the technical (XML scheme design) and functional (choice of structures) aspects of B2MML
  • Development of extensions for messages that would not be effectively supported by B2MML / ISA 88 / ISA-95
  • Development of an alternative specification XML schema to take advantage of ISA-88/95 concepts  without introducing a new language and to avoid the complexity of B2MML
  • Training

Jean Vieille participates in the XML MESA working group since its inception in 2002 by the WBF. He is the designer of the extension mechanism that enables to complement data structures and add models to the standards' baseline, as well as an object oriented B2MML version that reduces the code size by an magnitude.
