We offer a set of Engineering and Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solutions with our partner Siemens Digitial Industries which enable you to implement your strategy for the complete digitalization of manufacturing operations. Siemens solutions provide end-to-end visibility into production, allowing decision makers to readily identify areas to be improved within both the product design and associated manufacturing processes, and make the necessary operational adjustments for smoother and more efficient production.
Siemens technologies and architecture adapt to the specific requirements of different industrial processes. The solutions provide a rich ecosystem of industry-specific functionalities developed from deep expertise in electronics manufacturing. The highly scalable platform delivers multiple capabilities and enables customers to combine production efficiency with quality and visibility to reduce time to production.
ADVANCED PLANNING & SCHEDULING FOR ELECTRONICS
Digitalization is changing everything, and manufacturers must react quickly and intelligently to unexpected changes, while being able to respond to shorter lead times and satisfy customer demands. These challenges are faced not only by large enterprises, but also small and medium businesses. Opcenter APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) solutions have been specifically developed to meet this need, using advanced algorithms that balance demand and capacity to generate achievable production schedules.
Opcenter APS products can be used for long-term strategic planning covering months and years, medium-term tactical planning with a few weeks planning horizon and for detailed sequencing and scheduling.
Opcenter APS can be installed out of the box, and can be customised and configured where necessary. It can be used standalone to manage planning and scheduling, and is also designed for integration with other software such as ERP, MES, Data collection, Forecasting, Demand Planning and OEE applications.
PROCESS PREPARATION FOR PCB ASSEMBLY & TEST
The Valor Process Preparation module is a complete engineering solution for DFx, process development and test engineering for PCB assembly operations. It improves the efficiency and quality of PCB assembly with tools such as optimized front-end DFA analysis, BOM validation, stencil design, SMT programming and line balancing.
Process Preparation software by Valor, delivers a complete software solution comprising DFx, SMT, assembly and test engineering for PCB assembly operations. With a single central database of engineering data based on import of ODB++, native CAD, and BOM files with fully configurable manufacturing process definitions, Valor Process Preparation ensures automated, error-free set-ups and outputs for PCB assembly, test and inspection, right first time, in half the normal time.
MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT FOR ELECTRONICS
Opcenter Execution Electronics is a full digital manufacturing solution for the electronics industry. It addresses PCB, mechanical assembly and box-build production. The solution, based on direct connectivity to machines and production lines, includes manufacturing execution, quality management, material management and manufacturing intelligence.
Opcenter Execution Electronics integrates the Siemens Digital Industries Software portfolio and expands the digital thread throughout the entire design to manufacturing flow. Electronics manufacturers can change and reconfigure manufacturing and quality processes at the speed required to meet increased customer demand and quality requirements. Electronics manufacturers are realizing faster NPI and time to market, while improving their ability to compete in a rapidly changing, consumer-driven marketplace.
INTEGRATED ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
Modern electrical/electronic systems are characterized by a huge growth in complexity. One of the biggest challenges is developing these complex, multi-domain systems in a coherent, integrated way, which is driving companies to evolve their electrical/electronic system development approaches to meet the market challenges of tomorrow. The next generation of development approaches must blur the boundaries between software, electrical, electronic, and network development to ensure comprehensive traceability and compliance whilst accelerating product development.
BOUNDARY SCAN SOLUTIONS
XJTAG is a world leading supplier of JTAG boundary-scan hardware and software tools. XJTAG products enable engineers to debug, test and program electronic circuits quickly and easily. XJTAG was the first boundary-scan solution to offer a common platform for use by design and development engineers, test engineers, contract manufacturers and field test engineers, providing testing of not only JTAG-enabled devices but non-JTAG devices as well. As a long term trusted partner, CDT has provided XJTAG products to shorten the electronic design, development and manufacturing processes.
Our solutions are built for the specific needs of individual industries. Based on years of experience understanding key industry requirements, these solutions help companies quickly realize value in their products and processes.
In today’s world of highly specialized products, general software solutions fail to meet the needs of fast-moving companies in competitive markets. Extensive software customization efforts along with complex, time-consuming implementations make it difficult for companies to quickly capitalize on the potential benefits these solutions can offer. Only by working with solutions built for the particular processes and in the specific language of an individual industry can companies leverage these technologies at the speed that today’s products demand.
That’s why more than a decade ago our partner Siemens Digital Industries Software began establishing industry-specific steering groups comprised of select groups of forward-thinking customers considered leaders in their industries and innovative in their use of our technology. These steering groups focus on business processes unique to their industries, the challenges associated with those processes and the new concepts that will dramatically improve them.
No matter what industry you’re with Siemen’s industry specific solutions and our expertise in electronics manufacturing in a variety of industry we can help build your digital enterprise with a software solution that’s right for you.
Automotive and Transportation systems are exponentially adopting sophisticated electronics, sensors, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Electronics manufacturers are using digitalization technologies to deliver more sophisticated and reliable electronics at scale. Our solutions provide a suite of digitalisation technologies used by electronics manufacturers to design and manufacture electronic systems to help achieve this new level of innovation and efficiency.
AEROSPACE & DEFENSE
The future of the aerospace and defense industry is exciting. Next-generation aircraft – powered by advanced electronics, sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) – will differ significantly from what we are seeing today. Aerospace and defense electronics and avionics manufacturers must rely on digital technologies to deliver more sophisticated and reliable electronics at scale. Our solutions enable electronic manufacturers to cope with the demanding needs of the industry today.
INDUSTRIAL & CONSUMER ELECTRONICS
The electronics industry is characterized by extremely short product lifecycles. That is why a smart concept is needed – one that is intelligently adapted to this innovation-driven market. With the comprehensive our comprehensive portfolio: product designers, electronics manufacturers and machine builders can find the right hardware and software to meet any challenge.
Our solutions help consumer and industrial electronics companies achieve real business value by helping them get to market faster and reduce costs while improving quality and market position.
CONTRACT MANUFACTURING /
