The Research Data Alliance (RDA) DMP Common Standards working group recently held a work group titled Data Stewardship Realized: From Planning to Action. The work group focused on domain-specific extensions for machine-actionable data management plans. The aim is to migrate ‘not very useful’ succinct descriptions of published research to ‘machine actionable’ fully qualified representations using Dublin Core metadata. The RDA is funded by the EU Commission, the US NSF/NIST and other international research organizations.

The EU is to hold a workshop on ‘advanced and interoperable digital’ business-to-business platforms for smart factories and energy in Brussels on the 15/16 October 2018. The event concerns users and suppliers of B2B digital industrial platforms and will discuss user requirements, existing commercial and community-driven solutions and challenges. At stake is a €300 million contribution from the EU to ‘foster cooperation of stakeholders across value chains, user-supplier integration, and fast adoption of emerging standards’. The workshop is to cover evolving technologies in areas such as artificial intelligence and blockchain.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has revised its ISO 31000 risk management standard. The 2018 edition provides a simpler and clearer guide to risk management principles, planning and decision making. Read the ISO article on changes to the framework here.

ECCMA is providing free certification and registration to master data quality manager level in accordance with the ISO 8000 and ISO 22745 standards. Upon completion of an online quiz, data quality professionals will receive an ISO 8000 MDQM certificate in PDF format. A ‘printed and signed’ edition is available for a fee $50.

Energistics Prodml V2.1 release candidate is now available for review. Prodml provides open, non-proprietary, standard data interfaces between software tools used to monitor, manage and optimize hydrocarbon production. Comments and issues should be submitted before December 3, 2018.

FuelPlus, a provider of aviation fuel management software, has announced eTender, a solution for paperless fuel tenders. eTender uses the 2016 IATA XML fuel tender data standard.

Standards bulimia continues at the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) with (at least) four new initiatives. OGC has announced a teaming with the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) on interoperable modeling and simulation. The idea is to advance 3D geospatial and M&S interoperability with the goal of a global common model. Next up, an OGC initiative to couple artificial intelligence with geoinformatics with in a new domain working group. OGC has also announced a borehole and associated data interoperability experiment, a ‘domain-neutral semantic description’ of the general concept of borehole. Borehole IE addresses geological and geophysical across inter alia, oil and gas, civil engineering and environmental sciences. Finally, OGC is seeking comments on its proposal for a statistical domain working group to investigate the integration of geospatial information into statistical systems for discovery, analysis and use.

The Pipeline Open Data Standards (PODS) body has released PODS Lite 1.1 with implementations for SQL Server, Oracle, and PostGreSQL in addition to the ESRI geodatabase implementation of V 1.0.

PPDM’s hydraulic fracturing model will be included as a component of the PPDM 3.10 (ten) release.

The World Wide Web consortium’s devices and sensors working group has published a working draft of its geolocation sensor specification, an interface for obtaining the geolocation of a hosting device.
