IIoT stands for Industrial Internet of Things and is often used as a synonym for the term Industry 4.0. IIoT refers to digitally networked, intelligent machines or plants in an industrial context, especially in manufacturing.
The goal is efficient, self-organized production in which machines, plants, products, and people communicate and cooperate with each other. This networking is intended to optimize the entire value-added chain in the company, from the idea of a product to development, production, marketing and sales, use, maintenance, and recycling.
