Osterwalder AG is now member of the umati community.
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
“Providing a standardized “language” for common use cases is essential to drive the numerous IoT initiatives. Umati should bring together machine builders and their users to pursue common interests. Osterwalder is aiming to establish umati in our specific customer segment.”
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
“The possibility of using a companion specification significantly simplifies the implementation of such a communication interface. It is also a great help in communicating with our customers as numerous questions in respect of interface contents and semantics have already been answered. A standardized language facilitates our customers to do the integration in their ecosystems such as MES and ERP.”
How do you evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
“We welcome the expansion to include the various machine manufacturer segments. The more participants the easier it should be to establish umati as a worldwide standard. It is important to strongly coordinate the further development of upcoming companion specifications to avoid to many overlapping coverages of common uses cases.”
