Hydraulic Institute announces webinar series on electronic data exchange

The Hydraulic Institute and Pump Systems Matter have announced a new webinar series on electronic data exchange (EDE) for the pump industry. Session 1: Getting Started with HI Electronic Data Exchange will take place on January 15 and Session 2: Demonstrating how Electronic Data Exchange Works will take place on January 22. Both session will begin at 1:oo P.M. EST and last approximately one hour each.

Advance  registration is required. Registration for these free sessions is available at www.PumpSystemsMatter.org.

The Hydraulic Institute developed HI 50.7-2010, Standard for Electronic Data Exchange for Pumping Equipment, which builds on the FIATECH project known as the Automating Equipment Information Exchange (AEX) and is one of the components needed to improve interoperability when bidding, quoting, and purchasing pumping equipment for capital facilities.

Session 1 will cover justifications for implementing HI-EDE, the scope and purpose of the HI-EDE 50.7 standard, how data is exchanged using HI-EDE, benefits of implementing HI-EDE in your organization, and steps to take to implement HI-EDE.

Session 2 will cover the type of data used to define the HI-EDE 50.7 standard, describe EDE compliance levels, and explain how EDE was successfully tested for software capabilities. The webinar will also cover XML, data transfer, and pump process design.

The Hydraulic Institute is a Parsippany, N.J.-based group that serves the pump industry as a forum for the exchange of information while also providing services to member companies and pumps users worldwide. Pump Systems Matter is a non-profit educational organization established by the HI and leading utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to educate the industry on the benefits of pumps systems optimization and energy efficiency.
