Integrated support for production processes within a global skills network

Eight critical workflows

Successful electronics manufacturers look for solution partners instead of mere equipment suppliers. They work with their partners already in the design and development phase before they install open hardware and software solutions that must be continuously adapted to changing requirements and optimized with the help of support processes.

What’s the best way to master such challenges?

Not by thinking in terms of isolated applications, but by basing the development and positioning of our entire product portfolio on the typical workflows in electronics production plants.
Innovative electronics manufacturers focus on eight workflows that have a critical impact on the key performance indicators (KPIs) for efficiency, quality and flexibility:

Four line workflows:

Four factory workflows:

Smart SMT Workflows


Maximize your line utilization by scheduling your production with realistic capacities and restrictions.

Virtual Production

With a ‘digital twin’ of your production you can reliably simulate your processes.

Process Optimization

The next step in electronics production: solutions for self-optimizing processes.


Let your lines run non-stop and gain a competitive advantage with maximum productivity and quality.


Optimize your setup preparation for maximum efficiency and line utilization.

Material Management

Integrated solutions for highly flexible material supplies in high-mix electronics plants.

Factory Monitoring

Optimize your production based on real-time data.

Factory Integration

Connect all your manufacturing locations.
