- Re-industrialization, which supports industrial upgrading and transformation, promotes smart production and high value-added manufacturing processes, and helps to create new momentum for the economic growth of Hong Kong. Under the current situation, industrialists encounter several challenges to achieve re-industrialization. First, the cost and technical thresholds for industrialists to leverage emerging technologies are high. Second, there are huge quantities and numerous types of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in smart factories, warehouses and offices. The enormous extents of data exchange and communication, management, monitoring and control of IoT devices as well as the establishment and maintenance of a reliable cloud platform hinder industrialists to implement an integrated smart production management. Therefore, to achieve re-industrialization, upgrade and optimize advanced manufacturing processes in Hong Kong, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Suite consisting of a Micro-services-based IIoT Cloud Platform and IIoT-based Smart Hub is proposed, which helps to materialize re-industrialization in Hong Kong and to conduct industrial upgrading and transformation to achieve smart production and high value-added manufacturing processes.
