Author: Jay Gorajia Company: Siemens Industry Software Date Published: 9/22/2019
Abstract: Having a digital enterprise strategy is required to remain competitive. Traditionally, electronics manufacturing has been a separate and siloed part of the overall product development process. Electronics assembly manufacturing has predominantly been siloed, disjointed ecosystems, organizations, and processes. This paper focuses on the business challenge that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and vertically integrated manufactures have that design large and/or complex products. We will review how the challenge of designing, planning and manufacturing a product that is both mechanical and electronic can be addressed. How one can manage manufacturing data, manufacturing process planning, electronic work instructions, and production optimization, along with process validation tools for electronics manufacturing, as part of the overall product realization process. Furthermore, how having a single “source of truth” for both mechanical and electronics content with strong governance, can bring electronics manufacturing into the digital thread of the product design lifecycle.
This paper focuses on how electronics manufacturing can be part of an organizations’ enterprise digitalization strategy, what steps to take, to closing the digital gap from Product Design to Production Execution.
