Device management can be hard with a big variety of devices from multiple vendors. This can lead to situations where each device manufacturer has its own tools. The open smart grid platform currently supports basic device management features such as:
Adding and removing devices to the platform
These functions are related to domains for now. The OSGP community is planning to make these device management functions generic. With generic functions the Open Smart Grid Platform can be used for device management independently form the existing domains. This could make device management easier for organisations who manage many devices in the field.
