What is OMP?

The Open Manufacturing Platform: Building the Future of Manufacturing, Today.

Founded in 2019 under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, the Open Manufacturing Platform (OMP) is a global alliance helping manufacturing companies accelerate innovation at scale through cross-industry collaboration, knowledge and data sharing, and access to new technologies.

The OMP brings together business leaders and technologists from manufacturing companies, systems integrators, independent software providers, 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 silos, and solve real problems for all of us—regardless of technology, solution provider, or cloud platform.

The OMP consists of a member alliance and community. The alliance includes three membership tiers, all of which may propose working group priorities and contribute and consume code, reference architectures, ideas, publications, and other output. We work alongside leading manufacturers in working groups to define and use a common open data model, influence existing and future standards, and build open solutions.

Members must apply, sign a contract, and pay membership fees. At the highest tier is the steering committee, which provides governance and ultimately decides on the working groups.

The OMP member alliance consists of manufacturing industry leaders, including The BMW Group, Microsoft, Bosch Group, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, etc.
