    e-Maintenance expresses the emerging synthesis of two considerable trends in today’s society: the rapid development of information and communication technology (ICT), and the growing importance of maintenance as a key strategy for managing the product life cycle. In this research I studied and analyzed novel ICT models and technologies that can support innovative methods of e-Maintenance for the management of machines in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In particular, I designed a platform systems for the automatic and remote management of processes and/or machines, distributed throughout a region and the development of a specific operating platform in the IIoT. I expect my efforts made it possible to identify the technologies that enable intelligent factories, as well as new business and manufacturing models. As of today, significant results include publications and patents. The research project has also driven the design of Carpigiani operating platform able to confirm how e-Maintenance has reach a level of confidence worthy of being successfully applied to machines, processes, and industrial systems, guaranteeing rapid, cost-efficient, and reliable implementation. In this dissertation I initially analyze the context of the Industrial Internet of Things and the critical aspects that characterize its development. Then, I describe the subject of e-Maintenance and present the Carpigiani project. Finally, I studied the main related works, and draw conclusions.
