Applied SmartFactory automation software plans, coordinates and optimizes your factory—the processes, equipment and people—to provide a competitive advantage. Success is measured by reduced variability and cycle times, increased product output and line balance, and reduced operator costs. This allows manufacturers to meet on‐time delivery commitments within a planned cost structure. Capabilities of SmartFactory that provide this value include control and execution of manufacturing and material handling. Additional capabilities include our real‐time dispatching, scheduling, simulation, and SenseDecideRespondTM workflow methodology.
Meeting product specifications in terms of functionality, reliability and performance in a timely manner is critical to a successful manufacturing business. Properly reducing cost of non-conformance (ConC) events impacts operating margins. To help manufacturers meet these challenges, Applied SmartFactory automation software detects problems through statistical process control and fault detection with a strong emphasis on the system and human component. Our SenseDecideRespond methodology is employed for resolving non-conformance events. Real-time strategies such as advanced process control (run-to-run) and electronic control action plans reduce mean-time-to resolution for inline measurement, defects, contamination, tool qualification and electrical test. These strategies increase yield and reduce lost product in manufacturing.
To be competitive in advanced manufacturing, getting high efficiency and performance from your costly and complex equipment is vital. By increasing yield; reducing scrap, excursion, and rework; reducing false alarms; improving Cpk; and increasing tool utilization, Applied SmartFactory equipment control capabilities give users a distinct competitive edge. With Applied SmartFactory, you can learn how—using your own tool data—to perform cutting edge fault detection, preventive maintenance, run-to-run control, recipe management and equipment automation. The top consumer electronics and displays in the world have improved equipment efficiency using our Applied SmartFactory suite. Why not your factory?
Managing beyond the borders of the factory is required for a successful manufacturing enterprise. To compete in today’s manufacturing climate, using real data for business decisions in an automated fashion is necessary. Applied SmartFactory automation software solves these challenges by improving on-time delivery and lead times. Our ability to integrate data and decision making capabilities in a diverse and dynamic environment enables an agile manufacturing supply chain. These capabilities deliver better precision and improved business decisions to meet market demand and forecast materials and resources.
