communication (COM)

Communication is the understanding between humans, humans and machines or between machines. It is used for the one-way or two-way exchange of messages. If these messages occur in the form of speech, text, graphics or data, they are also referred to as telecommunications.

The prerequisites for communication are a sender who generates the messages, a transmission system for transmitting the messages, and a receiver who receives them. An essential component of communication is a common language of understanding.
