The use of manufacturing software is very specific to the industry in which it is applied. In the electronics industry, processes vary from highly automated, equipment-centric SMT/PCBA to medium or low automation at THT or final assembly operations. On the shop floor often many different software systems are used, resulting in inefficiencies for the operators, engineers, and plant managers. As the workforce relies on personalized user experience and guided navigation at the point of use to execute tasks efficiently and reduce takt time, continuous product and process improvement is achieved.

With our new functionalities, electronics manufacturers now can ensure that quality and efficiency are built into the production process.  

Revolutionizing user experience for electronics manufacturers through role-based, low-code apps, enabled through the industry-leading Mendix platform 

We unleash the power of Mendix by combining our MES, Opcenter Execution, with role-based, fully customizable user interfaces. This makes our solution not only role-based but also industry-specific and process-centric. Customers can take ownership of personalization and can leverage low code to perfectly map processes or even harmonize their end-to-end solutions,?empowering their competitive position.  

With this solution, the workforce comfort is optimized, the MES is easy to adapt, and the personalization is owned by the customer.
