This part of IEC 62264 specifies generic interface content exchanged between manufacturing control functions and other enterprise functions. The interface considered is between Level 3 manufacturing systems and Level 4 business systems in the hierarchical model defined in IEC 62264-1. The goal is to reduce the risk, cost, and errors associated with implementing the interface.
Since this standard covers many domains, and there are many different standards in those domains, the semantics of this standard are described at a level intended to enable the other standards to be mapped to these semantics. To this end this standard defines a set of elements contained in the generic interface, together with a mechanism for extending those elements for implementations.
The scope of IEC 62264-2 is limited to the definition of object models and attributes of the exchanged information defined in IEC 62264-1.
This part of IEC 62264 standard does not define attributes to represent the object relationships.
