Use of UCUM in industrial applications

Hello UCUM Team,

in your UCUM introduction you are stating: "We are still looking for the best way to establish this specification as a widely used industry standard." Therefore I want to inform you that we are currently planing to make a huge step forward to reach this goal.

I am currently member of a joint working group of VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association), VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) and OPC-Foundation hosting the OPC UA standard. OPC UA is the base protocol for industrial communication under the "Industry 4.0" label. We are currently developing a new data model for expression of engineering units associated to a variable and we are planing to recommend the use of UCUM expressions to name the units.

I would like to double check that we are not violating any of your license terms. Could you please get in contact with me so that I can show you what and how we are planing to do ?

Best Regards Carsten Born
