1: The initial Workshop
A proof of concept for ASAM ODS targets at projects or departments which have to process measurement data and do not have an ODS system running. The scope of a proof of concept as displayed below is a slim prototype to evaluate the possibilities of utilizing ODS. The workshop lasts for one day and takes place at the customer’s site.
We involve the customer in the approach beginning with the initial workshop. Thus, the delivered prototype allows the customer to evaluate the system on his own and to familiarize himself with ODS. A PoC is best accompanied with some training to gain some expertise while setting up the project.
The target of the initial workshop is to discuss the requirements as well as the processes of the customer. An important aspect to the discussion is the content of the data format produced, how it is processed and how it is supplemented by information required for data management.
As a result of the workshop we create an ATFx file to contain the application model.
