The radical evolution of internet into a network of interconnected objects that create a smart environment is characterized by the term Internet of Things (IoT). The adoption of IoT in manufacturing enables the transition of tradition manufacturing systems into modern digitalized ones, generating significant economic opportunities through industries re-shaping. Industrial IoT empowers the modern companies to adopt new data-driven strategies and handle the global competitive pressure more easily. However, the adoption of IoT, increases the total volume of the generated data transforming the industrial data into industrial Big Data.
The work demonstrated in this paper presents how the adoption of IoT in manufacturing, considering sensory systems and mobile devices, will generate industrial Big Data. Moreover, a developed IoT application is presented showing how real industrial data can be generated leading to Industrial Big Data. The proposed methodology is validated in a real life case study from a mould-making industry.
