Application Scenarios and Use Cases in the Internet of Things and their Impact on Standardization


Digitization enables the organization and management of value-added processes in the manufacturing industry in order to address the rising demands for a shorter time-to-market, a higher efficiency, an increased flexibility and the assurance of the required quality. The Plattform Industrie 4.0 has developed various application scenarios that show various possibilities how to unleash these opportunities. One of these application scenarios is called "Value-Based Service". This application scenario was discussed with the Industrial Internet Consortium in order to understand the different perspectives on the Internet of Things. The application scenarios are currently being refined, in particular also with regard to their impact on international standardization.

The talk will present the context, the current status and future activities in this environment.
