Abstract

Industrial internet of things (IIoT) is one of the main current hypes affecting the process automation. There are several scenarios on how it will change the control and operations in process and manufacturing industries. On the one hand, through a better connectivity, information will be much easier available, which enables building more complex systems. One the other hand, some scenarios speak for more distributed decision-making and simplicity where one, however, also must consider the optimality aspects. Nevertheless, it can be expected that the importance of optimization will increase and in this paper we discuss some aspects related to the challenges and changes that are triggered by IIoT.
