In the Internet of Things (IoT), it should be possible to create ad hoc and loosely coupled information flows between any kinds of products, devices, computers, users and information systems in general when and as needed. However, this is still challenging to achieve in practice due to the lack of sufficiently generic and standardized interfaces for creating the needed information flows between all of the devices and systems that form the IoT. In the LinkedDesign project, such interoperability is also needed between the different software components that are used for building the Linked Engineering and mAnufacturing Platform (LEAP). This chapter presents the two interoperability standards developed for this purpose, which are published by The Open Group: Open Messaging Interface (O-MI) and Open Data Format (O-DF). This chapter describes the design principles and provides a description of the standards, including implementation principles and examples of real-life implementations.
