Chemical plants are engineered to yield high output, while also complying to regulations. In initial R&D phases, experts gather large amounts of information to ensure an optimal design. Here, the influence of the optimization of the process on planning and operation of the plant is important. However, during operation of the facility, little of the information required for R&D work is available in electronic and interoperable form. It is described how this challenge can be overcome by a systematic data integration approach using international standards, centered around the DEXPI working group.
