As the world of traditional manufacturing fuses with information technology, organizations are tapping into a level of technical orchestration never attainable before. Symphonies of systems facilitate real-time interactions of people, machines, assets, systems, and things. This is the Smart Factory; the factory ecosystem of the future. It is an application of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) built with set of hardware and software that collectively enable processes to govern themselves through machine learning and cognitive computing.

We have identified nine areas where the IIoT is delivering bottom line business value today. Some applications, such as System-Wide Visibility, can provide value in a broad range of situations. Others, such as Mass Customization, describe a specific but very significant use case. Each application is exemplified by an IIC testbed. Testbeds are real projects, implemented collaboratively to increase our collective understanding.
