SAP, a business enterprise software company, has joined the Open Manufacturing Platform (OMP) initiative. The OMP brings together business experts and technologists from manufacturing companies, technology-solution providers and systems integrators to drive innovation across the manufacturing community and value chain. With this collaboration, SAP seeks to help drive innovation along the digital supply chain using open standards and open source. SAP will participate in all working groups, including Manufacturing Reference Architecture, IoT Connectivity, Semantic Data Structuring and ATS Core Services.
“SAP wants to accelerate supply chain innovations at scale through the power of open collaboration,” said Nils Herzberg, SVP and global head of Strategic Partnerships for Digital Supply Chain and Industry 4.0 at SAP. “Not only do we live in the century of shared economies, but we also live in the time of collaborative development. The focus for the future will be stronger, more resilient supply chains coupled with agile production facilities. SAP has the supply chain applications to achieve this. As a member of the OMP, we will work with our customers and partners to create access to these future-oriented applications.”
