Working Groups

All projects undertaken by PI - ranging from writing the original specifications for PROFIBUS and PROFINET to organizing major marketing programs - are delegated to Project/ Working Groups made up of expert volunteers from member companies. Currently there are more than 50 Project / Working Groups, comprising over 500 personnel. Project / Working Groups are organized beneath a set of Committees who have overall responsibility for projects initiated by PI.

Any member of PI has the right to participate in these Prject / Working Groups.

By delivering standardized and consistent solutions across industry PI ensures plant operators can optimize manufacturing lines and maximize profits.
