Standards and Interoperability in Digitized Industry

Learn how standards enable interoperability in a digitized information environment

The smart industry is a fully connected and flexible system that can use data streamed from connected operations and engineering- and production systems. In a digital environment, information will flow through many different computer systems and services. Interoperability is fundamental, since that is what makes it possible to exchange and share information in a digitally connected environment. What is more important is that there are well-defined information protocols that can represent the types of information that different computer systems and services conform to.
