The IoP is a complex, evolving socio-technical network of interconnected devices, software, data stores, and humans, as users and contributors of expert knowledge and feedback. In its cross-domain production engineering and worldwide collaboration focus, it goes deeper than the typical use cases within, for example, the German Industrie 4.0 projects, the Industrial Internet Consortium, or the German/European Industrial Data Space Initiatives – all in which we actively participate.
