HMI User Management

The management of users on any software system is critical to the security of the system and the organization. Proper procedures should be in place within the organization to identify the proper permissions each new user should receive.  Each person or user may not have equal rights, for example, an expert-level user who knows how the system works as compared to an entry-level worker does not know. So there might be potential risks of misusing the system. This section just describes different features with samples for the TwinCAT environment.
