Surface-Mount Devices Planning with Asprova APS System

Optimal, Sequential Planning for Throughput Time Minimization

To plan processes with varying process cycle times in optimal sequence, specialized software is required. Asprova schedules processes in SMD assembly, manual assembly, testing, and final-assembly automatically - thereby achieving shortest possible throughput times and minimal intermediate parts and finished parts inventories.

  • Holistic Process Synchronization
  • Minimized Lead Times and Inventory Stocks
  • Flawless Delivery Reliability

Challenges
