What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
We expect Umati to kick-start UPC-UA utilization at our customers.
Using UPC UA companion specs as a foundation, we expect a more standardized & efficient use of OPC-UA.
Having this in mind, Umati can be an important key technology in the Industry 4.0 strategy of our customers.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
Reducing complexity for our customers is a huge advantage of Umati. OPC UA itself has a great potential, umati makes this potential experienceable for everyone.
Umati will be our gateway to improve processes, add value and increase reliability through data.
How do you evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
The expansion to the mechanical engineering industry is a innovative and consequent step.
Mechanical engineers can improve and adapt their designs based on real life data.
Especially for companies without a strong software background, it was very challenging to gather & use this data.
Umati will lead to better and more focused mechanical designs by tearing down walls between machanical & software engineering.
