An Operations and Maintenance Information Open System Alliance

OpenO&M Initiative

The OpenO&M Initiative involves multiple industry standards organizations collaborating to provide a harmonized set of information standards for the exchange of Operations & Maintenance data. By mutual consent, MIMOSA maintains the Intellectual Property Rights Agreement for the OpenO&M initiative.

Industry-focused Joint Working Groups (JWG) have been developed with key open standards partners

  • OpenO&M Manufacturing Joint Working Group – ISA-SP95, ISA-SP88, WBF
  • OpenO&M Facilities Joint Working Group – National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS)
  • OpenO&M Military Joint Working Group – US Army SED & Navy TOSA
  • OpenO&M JWG participants harmonize the key standards from their respective organizations
  • OpenO&M JWG participants develop and demonstrate reference implementations based on their harmonized standards

Participating organizations work together to cross-reference their related standards and to collaborate on the content thereof.
