XML for Capital Facilities



T L. Teague, Mark E. Palmer, R H. Jackson


Extensible Markup Language (XML) offers a promising enabling technology for improving the execution of capital projects and capital facility life cycle data management. XML provides the most value when industry practitioners agree to use a common electronic vocabulary. In this article we review the business motivations for achieving software interoperability, introduce XML technology and summarize a joint-industry effort sponsored by FIATECH to develop and deploy a pragmatic common-industry XML vocabulary for the design, procurement, delivery and operation of engineered equipment.
