The complexity and precision of advanced packaging and testing has increased significantly with the advancement of technology, thus making production output and quality the key factors in competitions. The necessary functions for the implementation and monitoring of the complete shop floor production process must be ensured via production material traceability, quality inspection, non-conforming/defective product handling process, operational skills, statistical analysis reports, and so on. The accurate batch-to-batch, whole life cycle traceability and quality mgmt. of the products must also be ensured. During the digital upgrading, the biggest difficulty lies in the integration of operation and mgmt. systems from different factories, which required firstly, the seamless connections of ERP, EAP and other systems, and secondly, the integration of mapping systems and B2B systems, and finally the reserved docking interface for AMHS/OHT systems. The key step of digital upgrading for the enterprise is to converge rich OT experiences with advanced IT capabilities. Sufficient training and knowledge transfer were provided in order to ensure that IT team can provide front-line technical support, system management and secondary development work initiatively.
GETECH, through its in-depth research on onsite production process and on the client’s future development plans, after through communication with the client’s mgmt. teams, has made the IT system architecture that can both satisfy the operation demands of existing factories and the demands of future development. The architecture is fundamentally supported by such systems as EAP, MES, SPC, RMS, and RTD, with integrated top-level systems such as SAP and B2B, and is open to the future expansion of the automated and intelligent systems such as PLM, APC, Cloud App, WMS and AMHS, and to their digital twin technology in order to improve the transparency of factory operations.
GETECH has improved the client’s operation efficiency significantly through upgrading MES and SPC systems from an early stage, achieving the closed-loop scheduling, execution and automation of info. system. The process scheduling has optimized the operation sequence, and the vertical integration has achieved the info. close loop. The scheduling timeliness and reliability has been improved, production errors and dullness prevented and full-process production traceable. In terms of quality control, several functions have been realized including: the closed-loop craft and quality control systems; product BOM and craft process and change mgmt.; partial info. integration of PDM system; the closed-loop treatment process of defective/non-conforming goods, and the ensured standard shop floor operation through MES to establish the equipment tracking and lifecycle management system. The launch of MES has helped the client to improve equipment utilization rate. With the integrated OEE system, which has enabled the automated equipment data collection and the integrated OEE analysis, the client has established the PM execution and maintenance management system.
