Part of any plant’s Machine Safety Management program should also involve Access Management. The goal of access management is to ensure the right people, at the right time, are allowed to complete their jobs safely, while at the same time ensuring the wrong people are denied access. “Wrong” people can include those internal or external to the organization.
Enabling appropriate plant personnel easy and appropriate access to production machinery will help streamline the production process while decreasing machine downtime by ensuring any machine issues are dealt with in a timely manner. The same is true for machine data, where the goal is allowing the appropriate personnel access – from anywhere around the world – to appropriate data that will help in production planning and management, being able to make quicker decisions and take appropriate actions.
While perfect protection unfortunately doesn’t exist, there are many different solutions that provide excellent ways that allow appropriate access and, maybe more importantly, to prevent and minimize the impact of internal and external attacks on your plant’s machines and data.
