The Open Manufacturing Platform
A new initiative to accelerate innovation in the manufacturing industry. A powerful technology platform, reference architecture and open data model combined with a community approach to addressing the common challenges faced in industrial production today.
Future focused product vision that augments members’ unique domain skills.
Aligning technology visions to create industry-leading competitive advantage including joint deliverables and resources.
Together, execute on detailed integration plans to deploy solutions under controlled risk.
How it works
The Open Manufacturing Platform is an open industrial IoT platform to accelerate production and logistics optimization efforts.
- Data standardization across data producers for faster insights correlation
- Central auditability and dashboards
- Data monetization opportunities through controlled sharing and ownership
- Open source for OMP components
Community approach ensures requirement prioritization. All partners contribute and can shape the future of the platform, focusing on common industrial use cases and challenges.
Any company or organization interested in joining the OMP community can reach out to the BMW Group or Microsoft directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or OMP_enquiry@microsoft.com. The OMP Advisory Board is expected to be in operation with an initial set of 4-6 partners in place and a minimum of 15 use cases rolled out into select production environments by the end of 2019.
Organizations that share the values and spirit of the OMP are invited to join the community. All partners can contribute to shaping the future of the platform by focusing on common industrial use cases, sample code, and challenges. In addition to facilitating cross-industry collaboration, the platform approach unlocks and standardizes data models that enable analytics and machine learning scenarios, which has traditionally been inaccessible in proprietary systems. Community members and other partners will be able to develop their own services and solutions while maintaining control over their data.
The shapes and forms of membership will be further developed over the next few months into various tiers. The mindset of the OMP community typically requires members to contribute to use cases with open standards and open source components defined by OMP, cooperate and share a set of information with the OMP community about the roadmap of use cases to be developed and made available for the OMP community, and ultimately, to help define the list of requirements for the benefit of the community.
We promote an open community approach. Thus, there is no membership fee.
Community members submitting a use case own their data and IP.
We cooperate with communities, organizations, and initiatives (e.g. ROS community, OPC Foundation) and will share solutions back to enable interoperability and data exchange.
