c.a.p.e. IT is co-founder of the new OSBAlliance working group „Industrie 4.0“
In may some members of the Open Source Business Alliance (OSBA) constituted a new working group „Industrie 4.0“. It addresses the needs of smaller and medium-sized enterprises for a timely implementation of industrial digitalization.
This working group is supposed to create a link between industry and for a digitalization relevant Open Source-solution providers.
The main emphasis lies on open interface functions which are the mandatory basis for digitalization of industrial operating processes. Through experience exchange and provision of best-practice-scenarios the OSBA-working group „Industrie 4.0“ helps to solve typical problems when entering a process of industrial digitalization.
In a first step the working group will gather successful scenarios (use cases and referential projects using open interfaces and software) and make them available to industrial enterprises. At the same time a catalogue of solutions will be compiled, serving as a guideline to businesses for an effective planning and realization of an industrial digitalization.
Rico Barth was appointed to spokesman.
