The primary focus of IIoT is to connect machines and devices in industry areas such as oil and gas, power utilities and healthcare.
Implementation can be as complex as a fully automated production line that keeps track of productivity and maintenance. Can also keep an eye on the supply and request new materials automatically when supply gets low.
Automation improves productivity by significantly shortening response times to critical events in production lines. This also has a positive impact on energy consumption and saves money.
Predicting maintenance can save companies a lot of money by tackling problems way before they can become real. There are a lot of potential use cases for IIoT. The Industrial IoT Consortium lists these 15 possible uses of IIoT:
