Who developed cfiXML.org?

This web site was established by cfiXML sponsors to foster widespread, practical, cost-effective use of XML in the capital facilities industry.  cfiXML.org has been run on a volunteer basis under the supervision of sponsoring organizations.

The goal of this web site is to act as a public domain source of open source software tools, test environments and XML schemas being developed and used by the cfiXML user community.  Anyone may actively participate in and submit software tools or schemas to cfiXML, provided they use the W3C XML Schema standards and follow the cfiXML procedures and use principles described in the XML Schema Development Guidelines.


Organizations involved in the development of cfiXML have included: FIATECH; Alar Engineering Software; National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); Hydraulic Institute (HI); Process Industry Practices (PIP); American Petroleum Institute (API); American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE); Heat Transfer Research Inc. (HTRI); Design Institute for Physical Properties (DIPPR).
