Printed Circuit Boards, HDI, IC Substrates
New Industry 4.0 uses mean PCB manufacturers must focus operational excellence efforts on the challenges of high mix and complete traceability.
New applications in IoT, communication, automotive, medical and aerospace bring higher product complexity, high mix, as well as cost, and agility to deliver. At the same time, pressures mount from material availability and cost, regulatory requirements and handling constant change and traceability requirements.
With an array of complex products moving through a demanding manufacturing environment. PCB manufacturers need more than manufacturing visibility. With mistakes now more costly, companies need a flexible manufacturing system capable of connecting to the latest IoT and automation as well as office-based systems.
