Introducing the OpenMDM(R) Working Group!
Automotive manufacturers AUDI AG, BMW Group and Daimler AG together launched the openMDM® Working Group under the Eclipse Foundation (www.eclipse.org), which aims to promote the development and distribution of open source tools for measurement data management based on the ASAM ODS standard (www.asam.net). Other founding members are the software companies GIGATRONIK GmbH, science + computing ag, Canoo Engineering AG, HighQSoft GmbH and Peak Solution GmbH.
In the automotive industry, verification procedures during product development create an ever growing volume and diversity of data. To ensure that data is interpreted and compared correctly at all times, even from a different location or at different times, test data from different test systems needs to be documented vendor-independently and with descriptive information (referred to as metadata). The industry-wide established format for this is the "Open Data Service (ODS)" standard of the "Association for Standardisation of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM)", in short ASAM ODS.
