Material Management 4.0

Speaker: Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., Creative Electron

Over the past years the electronic assembly industry has focused on the development of Industry 4.0, a standard communication protocol that allows production equipment to dialogue. This communication protocol will be a key enabler to improve the quality and efficiency of the production line. This is achieved by creating a feedback loop between inspection and production - thus allowing problems to be identified and corrected as early as possible in the manufacturing line. As a result, the overall cost of manufacturing is reduced as yield rates increase.

In this presentation, we'll introduce Material Management 4.0. More than a set communication protocol between machines that count electronic parts and the machines that store them. From x-ray parts counters to fully automated and intelligent storage towers, Material Management 4.0 embraces the overall infrastructure that needs to be in place to realize an accurate, fast, and efficient methodology for inventory control. This investment is critical to realize the benefits in efficiency unleashed by Industry 4.0. 



Complimentary Lunch



Challenges in PCB Design

Speaker: Vern Wnek, C.I.D., Mentor Graphics

The PCB Design process can be as simple as drawing schematics, doing the layout of the board, and providing the fabrication information to the manufacturing vendor. In this session, we will discuss a few topics that illustrate how technology and the complexity related to the PCB Design process has evolved in recent years and how Mentor solutions can help to overcome the challenges in PCB Design. 



An Intelligent DFM Approach to PCB Manufacturing

Speaker: Patrick McGoff, Mentor

PCB complexity continues to accelerate. It seems we used to be able to speak in terms of a simple progression of technology, but today we know there are advances in materials, construction, manufacturing processes and component technology that multiply the complexities of PCB manufacturing. With such a myriad combination of factors, it makes for very challenging PCB design reviews for manufacturability.

However, just as the PCB technology has advanced, so has the Design for Manufacturing (DFM) software. Best practice companies use the intelligence in the PCB design data to drive their DFM analysis for more accurate, comprehensive and consistent results across users. In this session we will discuss how to use the intelligence in the design data to your PCB manufacturing advantage.

The Journey Towards Industry 4.0
Speaker: Hassan Aluraibi, Flex

Abstract: With ever-growing demand from customers and consumers, manufacturers are taking a closer look at the innovations that have shaped industries around them, and planning for the forthcoming, 4th industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0. This industry wide initiative seeks to integrate the latest in digital and manufacturing technologies, across a wide variety of solutions relating to simulation, machine communication, cloud computing and 3D printing, revolutionizing the way we manufacture. We’ll share a high-level view of this initiative, define key technologies, use cases and opportunities for growth as we usher in this exciting new initiative.

Expo Opens

Electronics and Textiles – Partners in Ubiquity
Speaker: Stephanie Rodgers, Apex Mills

Abstract: It’s happening folks! Successful outcomes of the first and third industrial revolutions are converging together as we begin the fourth; a hybrid of technology and humanity through textile applications.  Yarn has become the next invention and electronics are a topic of laundering performance and next level ubiquity.  Learn about the building blocks of advanced e-textile development, best practices for success, standards development and participation in Manufacturing USA.

Complimentary Lunch

X-ray and CT Scanning in the Context of Industry 4.0
Speaker: Rahul Alreja, VJ Technologies

Abstract: In today’s world, delivering quality products to end-users is absolutely critical.  Social media and the internet have made knowledge instantaneous and pervasive, and a misstep or flaw can cause catastrophic damage to a company – reputations that have taken years to make can come crashing down in days, if not hours.  The challenge is that maintaining quality is not easy – there are too many variables at play, even in the cleanest of environments.  And conditions can change almost instantaneously.  The trick, then, is to be adaptable, and emerging technologies (such as Big Data and Blockchain) are being adopted and harnesses to dynamically (and automatically) alter quality.  Drawing upon some real-world examples from different industries, this session will explore the future of quality and the role that NDE, and more specifically, x-ray plays in it.
