What is openMDM?
OpenMDM is a measurement data management application. It consists of a kit of components and concepts used to compose specific applications for measurement data management systems.
The community targets at building component-based features to whole data management systems. These features may differ in functionality and use case. The concept inherits an openMDM API, representing a common platform for business applications, and the application itself, represented by business and GUI components. It is possible to construct new applications from existing components, but they vary in implementation of business and GUI components.
All applications describe measurement data with a full syntax defined based on the openMDM Application Model. The application model is a predefined model based on the ASAM ODS standard, therefore inheriting its benefits, too. The applications are naturally bound to the openMDM application model.
Unique to any application is, that it is possible to design the data model based on templates by the integrated configuration and administration tools. This allows the application model to evolve during runtime.
Key aspects to any applications are features to manage the data, evaluate results and descriptions (metadata). Integrating measuring systems and tools of 3rd party vendors in the openMDM application is possible by utilizing given interfaces.
The openMDM Eclipse Working Group furthers the development of components and concepts . All components and concepts are published under the Eclipse Public License.
