The Internet of Things in Manufacturing: Key Issues and Potential Applications

  title={The Internet of Things in Manufacturing: Key Issues and Potential Applications},
  author={Chen Yang and Weiming Shen and Xianbin Wang},
  journal={IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine},
With the globalization of the world's economy, manufacturing enterprises are facing severe competition from their worldwide counterparts in terms of product price, function, quality, cost, and lead time. They are also experiencing growing pressure to meet higher environmental standards due to enhanced producer responsibility [1]. Meanwhile, consumers have more diversified and demanding needs, e.g., customized products. These challenges have pushed the manufacturing industry to embrace new…
