There have been numerous articles written about the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the benefits it can offer industrial organizations such as manufacturers and resource production facilities. Very little, however, has been written about the implementation realities of effectively assembling assorted IIoT technologies and addressing various decision points throughout the process. True IIoT benefits come not from step changes like upgrading equipment to be more efficient, but instead from driving continuous process efficiency by developing a constant feedback loop for data collection and assessment, used to inform IIoT strategy. While there is no one-size fits all approach, this article addresses common questions to help organizations build an effective IIoT framework. MORE
