Interoperability in feedback loops is a very old problem within the digital thread and is an underserved aspect of the contemporary standards community and R&D initiatives in general. While downstream information data flows have received much attention, and have matured significantly over the last decade, this presentation will highlight many potential opportunities for interoperability standards such as the Quality Information Framework (QIF), to provide a transport mechanism for many use cases in digital manufacturing that require feedback loops.
