Advanced Scheduling for PCB Assembly
In PCB assembly, work order modifications, time overruns, and material availability issues frequently disrupt the production schedule. Opcenter Advanced Scheduling for PCB Assembly solves these challenges by seamlessly connecting your planners to the shop floor, enabling capacity-based production plans, and real-time schedule changes.
This easy-to-use decision support tool combines data from the shop floor, enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and supply chain. This combination enables accurate short-term scheduling and a production plan that includes groups per line, static feeder settings, trolley usage, kanban/work-in-process (WIP), and resource allocation. What-if simulations empower you to respond immediately to line-down events. With Opcenter Advanced Scheduling for PCB Assembly, you can minimize machine setup by grouping products intelligently, and you can respond rapidly to bottlenecks based on real-time analysis of actual versus scheduled performance.
