ICONET: Layered Protocols Analogies to the Physical Internet

The Open Systems Interconnection model (OSI model) is a reference model that characterises and standardises the communication functions of the digital internet with regard to its underlying internal structure and technology. Its goal has always been the interoperability of diverse communication systems with standard communication rules. The model comprises of abstraction layers each serving the one above and being…

Generic PI Case Study (GPICS) and PI Hubs Plan

GPICS represents an abstraction of a PI supply chain network, based on the four Key PI capabilities which correspond to a different LL within ICONET. GPICS makes a representation of a real-world system by creating a conceptual model for a generic geographic area, a series of descriptive elements, the logical relationships relative to the components…
