The Internet of Production (IoP) is based on the vision to enable a new level of cross-domain collaboration by providing semantically adequate and contextual data from production, development and usage in real time and adapted granularity. The central scientific approach is to provide digital shadows as application-specific aggregated and multi-perspective data sets. In the Cluster of Excellence, a conceptual reference infrastructure will be designed and implemented to enable the generation and use of digital shadows.

The research field "Agile Product Development" concentrates on the determination of structures, processes and methods as well as on the facilitation of agile product development for cyber-physical products. In this context, the Internet of Production enables the integration of stakeholders for effective development and eliminates latencies to radically reduce development lead times.
