HMI design in the age of the Smart Factory
Connectivity is a central effect of the development of production equipment through to the Smart Factory. Production machines and equipment communicate with one another and so the Internet of Things is a basic requirement for Industry 4.0. However, as a result, production equipment also changes and the tasks of the machine operator change quickly and frequently. The response to this challenge is user-defined HMIs.
The requirements for HMIs in a smart factory result from quickly-changing production requirements and user needs. Ergonomics and the best-possible support when performing tasks are central requirements of a machine operator.
You can find ideas for the implementation of situation-amended HMIs in this article.
