Abstract: The shift of the computational paradigm to a model where there is a multiplicity of computational devices capable of feeling and acting on the environment allied to the digital transformation of manufacturing processes, with an increasing real-virtual fusion, are two of the pillars of the ongoing industrial revolution industry coined as Industry 4.0. In the context of new manufacturing environments, the development interfaces that are usable, intelligible, interactive and easy-to-implement and deploy across multiple device is a major aspiration to be achieved. This paper describes the design process of an interface, supported by web standards, adapted for additive manufacturing appliances. This interface aims to allow the monitoring of the production parameters, providing the operator with all the information related to the manufacturing process and the equipment and materials involved. Beyond providing an effective tool to monitor and control of the real manufacturing proces s, it also allows to virtually simulate the process, thus enabling optimization and anticipation of possible issues. The adopted user-centered design methodology is described, as well as the proposed architecture. Details are presented on the developed prototypes, the users studies, and about the information collected from users for the requirements elicitation process and from the tests. The interface was developed through several iterations and was evaluated very positively by the users (operators) using established usability assessment instruments and methods. In the near future it is intended to generalize the approach and architecture to move towards a framework dedicated to the design and implementation of universal interfaces for industrial environments.
