A global alliance solving critical manufacturing challenges

The Open Manufacturing Platform (OMP) brings together business leaders and technologists from manufacturing companies, technology solution providers, systems integrators and more to drive innovation across the manufacturing community and value chain. We bring forward platform-agnostic solutions, open standards and technologies to enable smart manufacturing, break down data silos, and solve real problems for all of us—regardless of technology, solution provider, or cloud platform.
