July 22, 2019 – With its ASM Performance Monitor 2.0 software, ASM SMT Solutions works for the integration and networking of smart electronics production. The factory monitoring solution provides customers with real-time transparency regarding their smart SMT factory. To do this, the software collects machine data in real time and uses it to determine various KPIs (key performance indicators) that can be analyzed in detail (drilldown). Customers have access to role- and/or task-based views in all areas of the factory as well as remotely and on mobile devices. The Factory Console provides factory or production managers with an overview, while the Machine Console and Line Console visualize detailed KPI information for process engineers and operators. In addition to real-time views, the system can generate automatic reports from various aspects. It also features the ability to set threshold values for targets and alarms that trigger automated notifications and escalations.
With the Performance Monitor 2.0, ASM offers another component for modern factory monitoring that features real-time KPIs, drilldown functionalities, mobile access, role-based views, and automated reports and alerts. The ASM software fits into the company's existing software and equipment landscape. It collects machine data in real time and uses it to compute six central KPIs: Utilization, OEE (overall equipment efficiency acc. to the SEMI standard), OEE benchmark (OEE with regard to the machine's or line's theoretical placement performance), component waste rate/cost, changeover time, and yield (after the post-reflow AOI).
The ability to drill down from the KPI overview to trend data and detailed views of individual line components with a mouse click to identify the causes of deviations from target values and take appropriate countermeasures.
The ASM Performance Monitor 2.0 provides users with views for their specific jobs and tasks – even remotely and on mobile devices. While the Factory Console supplies production and factory managers with KPIs for the entire production down to individual lines, the Machine Console and Line Console provide process engineers and machine operators with detailed views and analyses of things like output, order progress, and more.
To enable users to take instant countermeasures when KPIs miss their targets, the factory monitoring solution features its own notification functions. Users can define high and low thresholds whose violation triggers automated notifications of groups of people for each KPI. The regular distribution of standard reports can also be automated. The software can analyze and visualize data from up to the last 24 months, and a log function records the reasons for line stops.
