Solving large-scale, Industrial Internet problems has the potential of creating huge cost savings, new products, and market opportunities. However, beyond the technical challenges, understanding human motivations and values underpinned by the Internet of Things is difficult.

As data collection and connectivity grow exponentially, the interface to remote storage, analytics and connected systems become an inflection point through which potential value is delivered to end users and equipment operators thus, increasing the importance and value of how we interact with connected hardware.

Examples are shown of how the Industrial Internet of Things can unlock value propositions such as increased productivity, better analysis, and business intelligence by better understanding human motivation.

Tangible design methodology to understanding patterns in the data lifecycle for Connected Infrastructure products is provided for designers and product teams when approaching Industrial Internet problems.
