Moderator, Ken Sinclair.
AutomatedBuildings.com is hosting an online connection to the emerging Web Services Information Model. Web services can provide an information platform that is high-level, cross-platform, cross-discipline, and multi-vendor. A new vehicle is needed to define a comprehensive information model for the facility. It is called an information model to be above standards and protocols. As an industry we request the support of the necessary key players to move this model forward with minimum administrative overhead and open ownership in true internet fashion. Where possible all proposed information models will follow existing internet protocols.
This resource is a collection of articles from our web resource and others.
The development of our industry Web Services Information Model is an interactive process so please provide your input and connections to known resources for all to share sinclair@AutomatedBuildings.com
