Enabling Workforce Tracking and Process Optimization Through Secure Operator Authentication.

May 31, 2023
Operator identity is often a missing link in manufacturing data. To optimize plant processes, manufacturers need to know not only what machines and materials were used and at what times but also who was in control.

Industry 4.0 revolves around data, particularly through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which enables manufacturers to meticulously track various metrics throughout the production cycle. However, an essential piece of data often overlooked is operator identity. By incorporating operator identity into the collected data, manufacturing facilities can gain valuable insights for improved workforce and production management decisions. Moreover, implementing a machine authentication system enables access control for individual users, safeguarding expensive machinery, production processes, and valuable intellectual property stored on the machines, such as part or tool specifications.
