The Open Measured Data Management Working Group leads the implementation of a vendor-neutral Open Source Software platform for the management of test data. In compliance with the ASAM ODS standard, this platform enables an ecosystem and industry standard that includes both automotive companies building inhouse applications and application vendors building commercial and open source solutions, tools and systems. Members of the working group include automotive OEMs as well as service providers and application vendors. The openMDM working group is coordinating the Eclipse mdmbl project, published under the business friendly Eclipse Public License 2.0 (EPL-2.0).

openMDM meets Prostep ivip FDX Working Group 2021

online event: October 27, 2021, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CEST

To deepen the relationship between both groups, Peak Solution organized a presentation by representatives of the Eclipse openMDM working group for the members of the prostep ivip FDX Workflow and Implementor Forum.

On-Demant Presentations:

Michael Plaggge, Ecosystem Development Director at Eclipse Foundation, explains the role of the Eclipse Foundation as a driver of collaboration and innovation on an industrial scale and classified the openMDM project and the openMDM Working Group as part of the Eclipse Automotive Top Level Project:

Gert Sablon, Senior Director Simcenter Testing Solutions at Siemens Digital Industries Software, gives an insight into the background of openMDM, in particular which challenges related to test data management exist, how the openMDM Working Group came to life, and what kind of problems can be solved today with the openMDM Framework. He also gave an outlook on new topics that have to be tackled in the field of test data management, such as e.g. a closer integration with simulation applications , the use of big data and advanced analytics technologies as well as cloud computing. In this context he emphasizes the increasing need for more collaboration between all participants:

Christian Domrös, Product Manager at Peak Solution, presents how the components of openMDM can be used as an integration platform for the transparent management of different data sets coming from physical tests and simulations and what the implementation of coherent tool chains could look like.

The Eclipse mdmbl project implements a server platform that through its scalable backend architecture can serve many ODS compliant servers in parallel for data ingest, data exploration, test management, user and access management and more. It exposes a RESTful interface for clients, hiding much of the complexity of the ASAM ODS interface specification. Security mechanisms at the data and functional level protect the stored information against unauthorized access.

The following commercial ODS servers have been tested for use with the platform:

  • Peak ODS Server from Peak Solution GmbH
  • Avalon from HighQSoft GmbH

Through its open adapter interface, proprietary non-ODS compliant storage systems can be connected, for example, PAK Cloud from Müller-BBM.

With major versions V5.0 released in Q4/2018, V5.1 released in Q1/2020, the team is working towards V5.2 to be released Q1/2021.
