OEM Automation, or original equipment manufacturer (OEM) automation, is a form of product development and manufacturing control, using specialized software and hardware. These solutions are often used to improve the quality and productivity of production lines in automotive, aerospace, defense, pharmaceutical, medical device, and other industrial sectors.
Quality of service tiers
For OEM automation, tiers can be a great way to create consistency and quality of service for end users. This can be achieved through the development of incentives for channel partners and the setting of clear goals for service capabilities and inventory commitments. By doing this, OEMs can differentiate between high and low performers and focus their efforts on underperforming distributors. In the end, they can also improve the overall efficiency of their supply chain.
If a company decides to work with a variety of tiers, they will need to be diligent in the implementation of each tier. These different tiers will enable them to live alongside one another, while still providing the necessary services for their customers. All tiers should be based on healthy business practices.
While each tier focuses on one aspect of the product, each one will help enhance the quality and functionality of the product. As a result, the end users will receive a premium product, and the company can work with experts who know their products inside and out. Additionally, the company can benefit from remote data analysis and more uptime.
Security vulnerabilities in the data bridge
A recent cyber-based attack on an industrial system revealed that existing systems are vulnerable to a range of attacks. These include SQL Injection, which allows an attacker to spoof identities and access sensitive data. By using specially-crafted software, an attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access to a network or other systems.
Another security vulnerability that can be easily exploited is the application programming interface (API). APIs allow communication between applications. APIs are easy targets for attackers because they can communicate over the internet. An attacker can then leverage the privileges of a system to gain unauthorized access.
There are a number of different ways an attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, including compromising authentication credentials, executing malicious scripts or taking advantage of a system’s misconfiguration. Once an attacker has gained unauthorized access, they can begin to manipulate the system in their own interests.
As an example, a successful SQL injection is one of the most common security vulnerabilities. This allows an attacker to use a compromised system to sabotage other systems, steal sensitive data, or even commit other harmful activities.
