As a member of the Electrical Sector board, Duffie will work alongside David Oldfather, sector lead and president/CEO of IDEA (idea4industry.com), to achieve the group’s mission of driving adoption of ETIM product classification standards through membership recruitment, product committee engagement and prioritization, industry advocacy and other sector-specific activity.
One of two dozen regional ETIM federations worldwide, ETIM NA is charged with supporting the implementation and adoption of the ETIM Technical Information Model (etim-international.com) in the North American wholesale electrical industry, and associated verticals.
Duffie says he is “looking forward to working with manufacturers and their distribution partners to bring ETIM’s product classification model to the North American electrical channel. Siemens has been involved in ETIM in other countries and we’re very excited about supporting and developing potential use cases across the industry.”
