Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) results from the addition of sensing and actuating capabilities to industrial environments to improve the overall manufacturing processes. Some of these systems have highly-complex tasks of monitorization and control and need to be programmed accordingly. The use of visual programming, such as workflows, is common in these systems due to the abstraction they provide to the systems programmer. However, such programming environments have several deficiencies

The work presented in this paper approaches these issues, delving into the design and implementation of a multi-strategy debugging mechanism into a commercial-grade Manufacturing Execution System. To validate the approach, a proof-of-concept was then developed and validated against different debugging scenarios.
