Michael Ford of Aegis Software Discusses the Balance Between Privacy and Manufacturing Data Exchange

Michael Ford, Sr. Director Emerging Industry Strategy at Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software (MOM),  recently discussed manufacturing data exchange in the August/September issue of Global SMT & Packaging. Read the full article here.

According to Ford, the greatest irony with data driven manufacturing is its inverse relationship with security and privacy. The wider the data exchange, the greater the scope for misuse and unauthorized appropriation of IP.

“There are very real issues across many familiar datasets that are holding back the adoption of digital manufacturing. Industry 4.0 now faces a problem that is as old as intellectual property itself. There is a solution to this conundrum, and it may have been thought up by some very clever people over a beer or two,” shared Ford.  

As digitalization in manufacturing increases, the great the risk of competitive losses. Being digital in nature, copying, altering, and making use of manufacturing data only takes an instant, as compared to days or weeks to put together all the related paper-based documents, or weeks/months in the case of competitive reverse engineering of end products.

Global SMT & Packaging is a global media brand that delivers print magazines, websites, newsletters, podcast, and video programming to electronics manufacturers across the world.
