With Real-Time Visibility and More Factory Floor Control, Electronics Assemblers Can Better Manage Small Lot Sizes

By giving electronics assemblers tools and information to enforce process control and make fast changes, the OnTrack Production Management and Traceability System supports a highly customized manufacturing environment. Electronic communications, real-time floor monitoring, and controlled routing allow you to effectively manage multiple orders, no matter what their size.

And, with OnTrack, electronics assemblers can more easily achieve ISO 9000 quality management certifications.

In a high-mix environment, OnTrack manages dynamic changes, such as missing material and operators or downed equipment, and provides a real-time production schedule update based on predefined operating constraints. OnTrack monitors production and, in real time, operators know the status of all machines in a cell or on the whole line.

During production, labor related to setup or model changeover will automatically be stored and made available for analysis. After packaging, a barcode reader updates the production count and scans the cartons. Each carton number is archived against the particular production line, manufacturing order, and customer order. As production is completed, the system reports back to the ERP to improve financial reporting and inventory control.

For electronics assembly manufacturers, OnTrack helps to:

  • Support smaller lot sizes
  • Improve product quality
  • Maximize control of the shop floor
