The S88 standard enables clear and concise transfer of information between different disciplines, specifically the Process Engineer and the Automation Engineer. The standard breaks down 'process areas' into 'process cells', 'process units', 'equipment modules' and finally 'phases'. Using these smaller 'blocks' the URS(User Requirement Specification), FDS (Functional Design Specification) and ultimately the final control software, are constructed in a logical 'easy to follow' way.

IEC 1131-3 Standard
This standard describes control languages, including graphical and traditional ladder logic.
MES products based on 'S88.01' generally use this standard for high level control system languages and PLCs such as Siemens and Rockwell are compliant.
