This part of IEC 61987 provides a method of standardizing the descriptions of process control devices, instrumentation and auxiliary equipment as well as their operating environments and operating requirements (for example, measuring point specification data). The aims of this standard are
• to define a common language for customers and suppliers through the publication of Lists of Properties (LOPs),
• to optimize workflows between customers and suppliers as well as in processes such as engineering, development and purchasing within their own organizations,
• to reduce transaction costs.
The standard describes industrial-process device types and devices using structured lists of properties and makes the associated properties available in a component data dictionary.
The intention is to produce a reference dictionary which allows a description of the inquiry, offer, company internal and other descriptions of process control systems, instrumentation and auxiliary equipment based on list of properties.
