    The OPC Foundation is all about delivering the best specifications, technology, processes and certification procedures. One of the critical things we are doing is partnering with a multitude of companies to help vendors quickly adopt the OPC UA technology, and at the same time certify their products through the OPC Foundation certification program.

    There are many vendors that provide toolkits to help you build OPC UA products. You can easily find the different vendors providing toolkit technology by visiting the OPC Foundation product catalog. In addition to that, we are looking for companies that provide training and consulting services to help you quickly bring products to market that are ready for certification. As more and more vendors incorporate OPC UA technology into their products, the adoption process and training of development staff becomes a priority. One of our members, Beeond, Inc. ( has focused their efforts on helping vendors through the adoption cycle – from concept to certification. Their 5-Step adoption process helps vendors:

    1. Assess and define their requirements
    2. Develop a roadmap
    3. Train development personal
    4. Develop the information model and software modules needed for compliance
    5. Certify their products against the specification

    This process is practical and will reduce the risk, costs, and time to market for vendors.

    Training is a critical component of the process. To facilitate adoption, the Foundation is working with Beeond to provide OPC UA software developer training for vendors who are ready to start on the path to adoption. Training is scheduled for September 25-27 in Redmond, WA , October 2-4 in Toronto, ON, and October 10-12 in Milwaukee, WI. Check out the training outline and register for this training at the Beeond, Inc. website ( These training seminars are being offered alongside the OPC UA one-day seminars listed above. This is a great opportunity to go to the OPC UA one-day seminar and then follow up and get advanced training on the OPC UA technology.
