The electronic manufacturing industry is very broad in scope (many products have some electronic components) and often have very short product life cycles. Technological innovation characterizes this industry more than other industries. As a result, products change often and can necessitate changing equipment and/or facility configurations. Electronic manufacturers will often use component parts that are manufactured by a supplier and assembled in a third location.
Because machinery is very expensive and run at high volumes, electronic manufacturers need to be able to maintain high machine utilization and a highly skilled workforce. In addition, the amount of scrap incurred during the manufacturing process can impact orders and the bottom line.
Taylor APS allows electronic manufacturers to easily change product specifications (routing) while maintaining high machine utilization (load balancing), and, scrap can be taken into consideration for the effect it will have on downstream operations.
- Easily change product configurations as required by the product life cycle. New products can be incorporated while old products are being phased out.
- Maintain high machine utilization (load balancing).
- Incorporate various levels of scrap reporting into the schedule, improving your overall plant efficiency.
- APS helps you manage your supply chain.
Electronics manufacturers have turned to Taylor products to help them solve these intricate, mission-critical planning and scheduling problems.
