Our initiatives

The Internet of Production Alliance works to make the knowledge and tools that are needed for a world of decentralized production, openly available.

Open Standards & Protocols

These initiatives are part of a series of open infrastructures that the Internet of Production Alliance is working on, aiming to build a new web that will do for products what the web has done for information – give everyone the chance to participate in production. In the long run, we aim to make it possible to contract 100+ nearby manufacturing capability with local machines to make the same quantities as mass production overseas.

Future open standards we envisage cover skills and people, materials and components and contracts and business models. We will continue to develop open standards, models, tools, and protocols.

Is there something you think we need to be working on - a standard, tool or protocol? Let us know!
