UGS Announces Tecnomatix Printed Circuit Board and Final Assembly Production Execution Solution

FOR RELEASE Tuesday, April 12, 2005

NEPCON Shanghai and PLANO, Texas – UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today launched Service Pack 3 of Tecnomatix™ eM-Execution™ 3.0 software – the proven, comprehensive Manufacturing Execution System (MES) custom designed for the electronics industry supporting both Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and Final Assembly.

eM-Execution 3.0 SP3 is an electronics industry-specific manufacturing execution solution that meets complete traceability requirements of all segments of the industry and enables continuous improvement of key manufacturing performance measures.

Key business benefits of implementing the solution include:

  • Accelerate manufacturing compliance of RoHS legislation through life cycle support of lead-free manufacturing including moisture sensitive device management
  • Replace unreliable and slow manual process verification with in-process rules and route enforcement during order setup, assembly, test, box build, shipping and after-sales service
  • Integrate quality management including statistical process control (SPC) and alarms to prevent non-conformance trends from eroding cost margins
  • Remove paper in the shop floor with a centralized documentation management system to deliver product status, work instructions, images and procedures to every station in your shop floor
  • Get the most out of your assets through seamless data collection and performance reporting of in-line and off-line assembly machines and test stations to support data-driven decisions on the shop floor
  • Reconsider expensive ERP/MRP projects to meet your traceability, work-in-process tracking and order management needs with an out-of-the box MES solution tailored to meet the needs of electronics manufacturing

Key benefitsinclude the minimization of product recalls through comprehensive traceability, reduction of scrap and repair by targeting root cause of non-conformance, faster new product introductions through consistent methods and practices and complying with unique customer requirements and industry legislation quickly and more profitably.

eM-Execution 3.0 SP3 complements the existing Tecnomatix suite of solutions for the electronics industry, which consists of new product introduction and production execution capabilities for board- and box- level products, adding value to all phases of electronics manufacturing.

“eM-Execution is the only solution that can meet all the MES needs of a high-mix PCB and electronics final assembly manufacturing,” said Chuck Grindstaff, executive vice president of products, UGS.  “SP3 is a major milestone for eM-Execution with enhanced material management and traceability functionality that will allow our customers to meet the new RoHS legislation on a single integrated execution platform.”
