January 30, 2019 - Siemens announced the introduction of Camstar Electronics Suite software, a manufacturing execution system (MES) for electronics. Building on the enterprise-level platform for integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing, this configurable and scalable MES solution enables printed circuit board (PCB) and box assemblers to meet traceability requirements, improve efficiency levels and control manufacturing operations through direct Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity with machines and production lines. Expanding on Siemens’ digital platform, Camstar Electronics Suite creates a true digital thread to empower electronics companies to further their digitalization strategy in line with Industry 4.0. By closing the loop between engineering and the shop floor, and enabling quick reactions to design modifications, manufacturers can shorten product lifecycles, increase production complexities and improve quality across the entire manufacturing lifecycle.
Siemens PLM Software continues to grow its digital innovation platform and look for new ways to expand on the digital twin. This recent collaboration between Siemens’ manufacturing operations management (MOM) software and Mentor technology has created a solution, which covers the complete end-to-end mechatronics manufacturing process. Camstar Electronics Suite activates the flow of product and business data between product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and shop floor execution through an integrated digital thread, enabling streamlined change cycles.
