ASAM (Association for Standardisation of Automation and Measuring Systems) is a worldwide organization that standardizes data models and interfaces for measurement, simulation and evaluation systems. One of its most important standards is ODS (Open Data Services), that has proven itself for over a decade as a reliable basis for the management of test and simulation data. Today the standard is used by a large number of well-known companies all over the world.
In 1999 openMDM® originated as an idea for a reusable systems building block in multi-year planning and implementation projects for measurement data management systems in the Technical Development Department of AUDI AG.
From 2008 openMDM® was published by Audi as open source. From then on large vehicle manufacturers and suppliers such as Bosch, BMW, DAF, Daimler and FEV joined the open MDM community as active users and started in collaboration with different tool vendors and service provides their own openMDM® projects.
User components The user components of openMDM® support the user in carrying out different steps in the measurement process and allow the standardization and automation of repetitive workflows. Alongside the storage of the measurement data, the recording of descriptive data (metadata) is a central aspect in each process step. Metadata are important for the usability of any data management system since they are used for navigation, exploration, searches and for the ability to compare the measurement data.
openMDM® 5 is a kit of components and concepts, which can be used to compose applications for measured data management systems. The development of components and concepts is driven by the openMDM® Eclipse Working Group. All components and concepts are published under the Eclipse Public License.
Based on open standards and open interfaces, the key features of openMDM® 5 include high reusability, flexible expandability and universal usability.
Using the openMDM® 5 building block, data management systems, differing in form and function, can be configured to offer a professional management of measurement data, evaluation results and their descriptions (metadata).
You have been storing your measurement data for a long time in different, more or less proprietary and department specific data storage solutions. Now you find that you’re in one of the following situations:
You are no longer able to assign your measurement data, you can’t find them now, or you don’t know where to look for them.
Using openMDM® you can document your measurement data in your own terminology. You can ascribe descriptors, standardize terms and classify information.
