How to cut new product introduction (NPI) time by 75%

By Shirley Segev

Phuntronix B.V. is an international Printer Circuit Board (PCB) assembly manufacturer based in the Netherlands. With a fully-automated SMT line that positions up to 100,000 components per hour, Phuntronix provides high-quality manufacturing services for the automotive, medical, defense/security, industrial/robotics, retail, and other industries.

Seeking a way to minimize the time-consuming new product introduction process, Phuntronix looked into a variety of market solutions, but could not find one that met their requirements. They needed worry-free, reliable software that would upload data, design panels, create machine programs, make drawings, upload BOMs, and basically conduct their entire, customized process preparation.
