One of the tasks of the working group is to represent the companies in OR.NET e.V. The AG Industrie serves as the first point of contact for interested parties from industry. It is responsible for the definition of the quality assurance processes, the coordination of the subsequent integration of the results of the other working groups into commercial solutions and all other commercial aspects of the association (certification, market situation, exploitation…). In cooperation with the other working groups of the association, for example, general consultations or active cooperation and coordination regarding requirement analyses, recommendations for interface standards or the prototypical implementation of interfaces are coordinated. The aim is to achieve the broadest possible consensus on the definitions of open standards for commercially feasible surgical work systems and components.
The objectives of the working group are to work towards further increasing the visibility of OR.NET e.V., to recruit further industry partners to strengthen OR.NET e.V. and to support the other working groups with the combined expertise of the industry partners.
