HOME About Us
FAOPEN was founded to provide "Remote Engineering" service to products and resources industries. Remote engineering would enable your fabs/factories to perform e-manufacturing and effective SCM, which include e-diagnostics, e-monitoring, e-billing, e-procurement, etc.

Our mission is to create a world standard of remote engineering service based on general business resources such as XML in order to dramatically reduce cost in capital-intensive industries.

Throughout the world, the change of economy from analog to digital to IT has influenced strongly on manufacturers of all capital-intensive industries. In particular, recent worldwide economic downturn has made manufacturers pile up inventories and have excessive number of production machines. These facts require manufacturers to broaden their business fields from domestic to world market and to lower production cost. In this situation, our remote engineering service - remote monitoring, maintenance, control - must be the important and critical service when you do your business or do some market research, and produce and sell your products in the global market.
Our company again provides services such as secure data transmission and line connectivity, e-billing and other skill-added services for data on general public phone line as well as consulting services of system integration. These services are based on computing network and have been co-developed with worldly famous R&D lab of NTT.
