Offering connected products that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT) enables new product functionalities and services, which creates additional revenues. Despite these new possibilities, engineering companies struggle to identify IoT use cases. Available publications mention many different use cases, but a structured overview is missing. This paper thus introduces a structured catalogue with 245 use cases. The catalogue provides a starting point to derive use cases based on analogy building. Initial case studies indicate that the catalogue assists in identifying new ideas for use cases.
