CDP is now part of the umati community

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?

We expect a long-awaited uni­fic­a­tion of many viable approaches into a com­mon com­mu­nic­a­tion stand­ard that will be well received in industry due to the broad range of part­ners and to net­work with com­pan­ies that approach imple­ment­a­tion in dif­fer­ent ways. We expect the part­ner­ship to give us addi­tion­al insight into the expect­a­tions and needs of engin­eer­ing companies.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

As a cur­rent top­ic in man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­no­logy umati allows us to fol­low the latest devel­op­ments and imple­ment find­ings accord­ingly. We can offer our pro­ject part­ners from vari­ous branches of the man­u­fac­tur­ing industry a pro­found insight into the latest devel­op­ments. In addi­tion we and our part­ners bene­fit from an exten­sion of our Industry 4.0 net­work on an inter­na­tion­al level.

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

If umati is already recog­nized in man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­no­logy, it is a good approach to extend it to a wider range of devices and machines and to deal with the cor­res­pond­ing open issues as well. How­ever, we are still curi­ous about the role umati will play in com­par­is­on to oth­er already recog­nized and exist­ing standards.

About CDP

As a research cen­ter the CDP Cen­ter for Digit­al Pro­duc­tion GmbH, loc­ated in Vienna, Aus­tria, aims to assist and sup­port com­pan­ies with reach­ing high­er levels of digit­al­iz­a­tion and auto­ma­tion. We look for solu­tions that not only cor­res­pond to the cur­rent state of the art but also go bey­ond it. Spe­cial dif­fi­culty is involved with auto­mat­ing pro­duc­tion pro­cesses that are inde­pend­ent of batch sizes. This is where we focus the com­pet­ences of our ded­ic­ated research engin­eers. We offer expert­ise such as vir­tu­al rep­res­ent­a­tion of products and pro­duc­tion sys­tems, the auto­ma­tion of design tasks, machine-to-machine com­mu­nic­a­tion, sensor integ­ra­tion and pro­to­typ­ing of pro­duc­tion assist­ance systems.
