Summary


The concept of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has gained significant momentum in the industry recently, heralding a variety of associated solutions and values. Most of these unfortunately represent little more than desperate marketing stories from legacy providers, or unsubstantiated promises from exploitative startups, triggering significant needless investment in narrowly focused, often bespoke technologies, that ultimately represent unnecessary deployment and ongoing ownership costs.

Conclusions


It is vitally important that the right path towards Smart manufacturing is followed. Technologies should be chosen that represent building blocks towards the ultimate end-goal, each generating benefits along the way.
