The concept of “industry 4.0” or “smart factory” refers most often to new technologies and the revolutions they bring. In our opinion, it is essential to understand and place the human at the center of the factory’s digital transition.
Indeed, the increases in production rates and quality constraints lead to a rethinking of the working methods of the operational staff. To remain competitive, industries must optimize their resources by giving them the means to be responsive and efficient.
It is then that new technologies can allow them access to the current activity, a regular and optimized monitoring of their performance. Digital is changing the very organization of the factory because all operators can access the information they need on their operator station or on digital display screens hung on the ceiling or on trays.
