Introduction

In early 2009 the membership of the POSC Caesar Association (PCA) and FIATECH organizations formed an implementation project called Camelot whose mission was to provide an implementation of ISO 15926, Part 7 and include support for a prototype Part 8 & 9.

The Camelot project demonstrated and delivered a set of free, public domain, open source software tools, now called iRINGTools, that were intended to be used in production settings and also provide software vendors with a usage pattern of ISO 15926.

With the success of the Camelot project and availability of an open source solution, the next step was to establish a user group to guide the development of iRING protocols and the iRINGTools software. That user group is the iRINGTools User Group.

Charter

The iRING user group charter defines the iRING online community user group. The charter will introduce the user group, now renamed to the "iRINGTools User Group" (iUG) and declare its mission, objectives, scope, organization, and governance. View the iRINGTools User Group Charter

Vision
Establish delivery and usage of fully operational software products and reference data content and services that provide seamless interoperability via the ISO 15926, Part 7, 8, & 9 standards.
Mission
The iRINGTools User Group will establish an online community of users, companies, and organizations that have common interest in solutions that implement ISO 15926 reference data and protocols to address their information interoperability and integration challenges. With the existence of the iRINGTools User Group, participants can seek and provide, guidance and support, from and to the iRINGTools User Group online community.
Scope
Facilitate the iRING user’s communication and collaboration, drive the extension of ISO 15926 reference data and information modeling, drive the direction of iRINGTools via the iRINGTools Software Control Board, manage the iRINGSandbox services, establish and maintain a live iRING reference system, establish iRING certification tools, and provide requirements to the developers of the ISO 15926 standard. The iRINGTools User Group is the organization for iRING.
Participation
Participation in the iRINGTools User Group is open to any user, company, or organization with an interest in learning, using, or improving ISO 15926. There are no requirements for explicit membership to the iRINGTools User Group. Participation in the iRINGTools User Group requires no fees or dues and is considered free. The iRINGTools User Group will maintain an active list of iRING users and volunteers to facilitate the online collaboration of iRING users.

iRINGToday.com is a community site dedicated to keeping our industry up-to-date and informed about the latest developments, news, and events surrounding ISO 15926 and iRING. At iRINGToday you will find information that is specifically geared towards a business audience and explores the business value that can be realized from industry-wide adoption of iRING reference data and implementation technologies.

ISO 15926 Reference Data
The reference data in ISO 15926 is the most important part of the standard. It establishes the “standardization” in ISO 15926. All aspects of iRING are dependent on ISO 15926 reference data. For recommended reference data usage patterns go to ISO 15926 Template Information Patterns (TIPs). For more details on how to use ISO 15926 reference data please go to Beginners Guide to ISO 15926 Modeling

ISO 15926 Information Patterns (IIP) Project
The ISO 15926 Information Patterns (IIP) Project has been formed to develop consensus based Template Information Patterns (TIPs) and to create iRINGTools Data Layer software for key industry software tools. The IIP project will also engage in various standards harmonization initiatives such as the EPRI Plant Information Model (PIM) Project.

IRINGTools_logo_small.png
iRINGTools is a set of free, public domain, and open source (BSD 3 license) software applications and utilities that implement iRING protocols. iRINGTools provide users with production ready deployable solutions. iRINGTools also provides technology solution providers with usage patterns for the implementation of iRING protocols in their respective solutions.

IRINGSandbox_logo_small.png
iRINGSandbox is an internet hosted, publicly accessible and publicly downloadable, iRING reference system that will showcase the use of iRINGTools and other technology solution provider’s products that implement iRING protocols. This reference system will also include an example iRING community sandbox which will hold sample ISO 15926 RDL extensions.
