The AEX project works with FIATECH members, equipment manufacturers, software suppliers and industry associations to demonstrate interoperability through the use of AEX XML schemas - thereby accelerating the adoption across various equipment supply chains. The AEX project works with the American Petroleum Institute (API), Process Industry Practices (PIP) and the American Society for Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to ensure that the AEX solutions support industry requirements, equipment datasheets and standards. The Hydraulic Institute, the industry association for pump manufacturers and related equipment and software suppliers collaborates with the AEX project on pump schemas, industry standards and guidelines and interoperability demonstrations. The AIChE Design Institute for Physical Properties (DIPPR) collaborated with AEX on schemas for material properties. The AEX project also works with other FIATECH projects to ensure close coordination on deliverables and to leverage the AEX results in other projects. This includes the Accelerating Deployment of ISO 15926 (ADI) project, the Global Valve Cross-reference e-Catalogue (GVCC) project, and updating of the Capital Projects Technology Roadmap.
