This paper discusses the application of Internet of Things (IoT) in manufacturing settings where the drivers are operational effectiveness and productivity. It begins by exploring typical environments where IoT is found, how value is achieved (e.g. IoT analytics measuring the interaction between multiple assets), followed by providing cases to show the impacts and benefits across different functions in organizations. Lastly, it emphasizes the importance of data sourcing as a crucial component of IoT and gives some insights about how early adopters might quickly make the transition from ad-hoc trial test cases to full-scale production.
Key words: Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), manufacturing, factories
