Many improvements have been realized in various domains, whether commercial or societal, through the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) vision, since the introduction of the IoT concept some two decades ago. Nowadays, the benefits that IoT technologies promise are becoming highly attractive for the industrial domain, in particular. There is no doubt that manufacturing of products, processing of big data produced in the production phases and gathering of customer behavior profiles, increases the efficiency of production, reduces the time to market and decreases the operational costs. This new approach that uses IoT based smart devices and intelligent sensors is called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Major global companies from various sectors such as manufacturing, automotive, mining and aviation are all taking advantage of the IIoT paradigm. The related technologies also provide limitless opportunities for the calibration industry. In turn, the world of IIoT needs to be provided with accurate and timely calibration information to increase the efficiency of processes. Having many sensitive measurement devices from customers to be calibrated by certified experts calls for networked and automated solutions. This chapter proposes an IIoT-based solution that could evolve into an architectural framework for the calibration industry.
