Customer: "In future, not only the products in the supply chain, but also supply chain services will be competing with each other." Friedrich Schröder, Vice President Manufacturing at Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices GmbH & Co KG (SHC).
Constantly increasing and changing customer demands
Strong global competition and pricing pressure
Rapid technological changes to products
Extremely high product variance and diversification
Companies within the telecommunications sector are facing many challenges.
Manufacturers of telecommunications components can only survive the rapid pace of technology change and strong competition with superior quality products. Customer satisfaction is the one of most important goals.
With highly complex manufacturing processes for electronic products, manufacturers are asking themselves the following questions:
How can we ensure that we are mounting the right parts?
Who is responsible that each process step is passed and documented?
How can we guarantee that the correct variants are being produced?
iTAC solutions for challenges faced in the telecommunications sector
In past few years, companies within the telecommunications sector have been increasingly implementing automated production processes in order to remain competitive with alternative manufacturers.
The deployment of iTAC' standard software helps companies set up highly automated production plants. It supports 100% production quality despite increasing numbers of variants.
Process interlocking is one of the most important issues here. Only through a reduction in failure rates can the plant increase productivity and achieve the OEE.
With “Built as planned“ as the objective, the iTAC.MES.Suite not only gathers traceable information it also detects faulty parts during the production process in order to come one step closer to “Zero PPM”.
The iTAC.MES.Suite delivers through
improving the quality, thanks to process interlocking and “active traceability”.
improving planning processes, thanks to transparent production processes.
increasing productivity through optimization of production processes.
reducing costs through high automation and the elimination of manual, failure-prone work stages.
