Purpose of the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance

The charter of the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance is to create customer value through holistic interoperable Industry 4.0 solutions and services in a common framework powered by an alliance of leading industry partners to drive the digitization of the factory, plant & warehouse of our customers

The alliance aims at accelerating the digitization in factories, processing plants and warehouses and thereby creating mutual benefits for both the customers and members.

Customer Benefits & Values

Operators, owners of the industrial facilities in discrete and process industries, are keen on constant cost savings and production/logistics efficiency and optimization.

Member Benefits & Values

The framework of the alliance enhances the collaboration between customers and manufacturers of assets, through (near) real-time visibility of asset operations and usage. Manufacturers can also expand their services offering, increase services efficiency, build customer loyalty and improve product designs. Additional revenue through value-added services can help differentiate product offerings.

Our customers demand an open and compatible cooperation where each company can bring its own strengths for greater good. The Open Industry 4.0 Alliance is the answer to this demand.
