Solving Remote Manufacturing Challenges using the Cloud
Remote manufacturing of products is challenging to manage and control. How do we keep secure control of the firmware IP used to program a product? How can we authorize legitimate builds of our product while preventing over-production and counterfeiting? How do we update the firmware IP being used during manufacturing? How do we keep a detailed accounting of every device programmed, including recorded unique device identifiers?
In an ideal production flow, we should be able to answer these questions regardless of where a product is produced. This talk is a discussion of how cloud technologies can be leveraged to provide the necessary control and visibility over our programming IP to achieve this in remote manufacturing facilities. A demonstration of such a novel system is shown.
