Providing improved production efficiency, visibility and quality

We are excited to announce that the latest version of Opcenter Execution Electronics 8.6 has been released!

The pressure to rapidly deliver a broad variety of high-quality products to market, along with the shift from mass production to mass customization, affects the ability of electronics companies to satisfy their customers’ needs while improving business performance. Using digitalization for modern manufacturing execution technologies helps printed circuit board (PCB) and box-build manufacturers to change and reconfigure production and quality processes at the speed required, while meeting increased customer demand, strict quality requirements and profit-ability constraints. They can contemporaneously realize faster time-to-market and improve their ability to compete in a rapidly changing, consumer-driven marketplace.

The solution includes best-in-class manufacturing operations management (MOM) capabilities, such as manufacturing execution, quality management, materials management, planning and scheduling as well as manufacturing intelligence, facilitating direct connectivity to machines and production lines.

Opcenter Execution Electronics 8.6 brings a lot of valuable capabilities, here are some of them:

  • KPI matrix
  • Carrier operations page enhancements
  • Operational dashboard defects per million opportunities
  • Manufacturing order network for consuming materials
  • Material list/BOM item assembly sequence
  • Material Management/IoT integration enhancements

Benefits of Opcenter Execution Electronics 8.6:

  • Analyze and report target KPIs against actual KPIs
  • Improved efficiency of carrier operations on the shop floor
  • Improved quality KPIs visibility, user interfaces and usability
  • Secure production process and quality through forced assembly sequence
  • Improved compliance through enforced material origin
  • Improved shop floor connection and higher automation to laser printer equipment
