Production schedules are like intricate domino lines. As long as each piece is perfectly positioned, everything goes like clockwork. However, one small problem or change can disrupt the entire operation.
It can be challenging for electronics manufacturers to achieve that level of accuracy when dealing with small-batch customers—the unpredictable nature of their business can create ripple effects that disrupt even the most carefully constructed schedule. For example, if a customer calls and asks for a deliverable on a tight deadline, manufacturers need to consider not only whether their production facilities have the capacity to produce the new order on time, they must weigh how the rush project will impact other works in progress (WIP).
Setting the stage for seamless production with intelligent simulation
The demand for high-mix, low volume products is on the rise and the only way for manufacturers to overcome the challenges it presents is to become smarter, faster and more efficient in managing their manufacturing priorities.
Intelligent simulation gives electronics manufacturers the tools they need to optimize dynamic production schedules and avoid downtime and scheduling errors. By combining data from the shop floor, ERP systems and the supply chain to create a digital model of the manufacturing process, high-quality PCB assembly can be executed quickly and safely on any manufacturing line, with rapid and automated adjustments to fit changing production schedules.
