POSC Caesar Special Interest Groups (SIG)

For assuring high quality of the reference data, POSC Caesar (PCA) has established Special Interest Groups (SIG) for some business domains in the upstream sector of Oil and Gas industry and for descipline areas in Process Plants. The SIGs are accountable for their domains. PCA’s Technical Advisory Board (TAB) is accountable for the consistency and quality of the refernce data across domains.

A 3 step quality process has been defined by PCA:

  • Submission of terminology from research or industry projects
  • Work-In-Progress (WIP)
  • ISO standard

The IIP and IDS projects are examples of projects delivering terminologies of high quality. To obtain status as an ISO standard (become a Part of ISO 15926) for ontology in one or more domains, an ISO standardization process has be carried out. Part 3 and 4 are examples of existing ontology parts in ISO 15926.

This Trac system was initially set up to serve the PCA SIGs. The SIG's will maintain and develop domain-specific areas of the POSC Caesar Reference Data Library.

The SIGs have a mandate.

At the moment there are four active SIGs:

Several SIGs are beeing planned for in late 2010:
