On its way along the supply chain, a product may be exposed to physical actors with very different requirements to the interaction with a DPM. For in-stance, while human users may precisely perceive a given productŽs visual shape, they have to rely on a "mediating device"; in order to create and apply content stored in a DPM. In contrast, robots may directly access the data stored in a DPM, but may require specific data in order to get a better "understanding"; of a physical interaction task. Finally, DPMs may have to interact with other DPMs in their sur-rounding, for instance, in order to delegate communication tasks. This article re-views components of the access layer, a part of the SemProM interaction architec-ture, which have been introduced for supporting tasks particularly common to the interaction of humans, robots, and DPMs with DPMs.
