Siemens and Computrol: Achieving Operational Excellence in Electronics ManufacturingDecember 2, 2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
I-Connect007’s Happy Holden and Nolan Johnson speak with Zac Elliott, technical marketing engineer at Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Farid Anani, VP of operations at Computrol, about how to achieve operational excellence in electronics manufacturing. They start by discussing the dynamic wherein automation projects may initially create islands of automation and the need to eventually connect those islands to achieve even greater operational efficiencies. The discussion then moves to how to make the data smarter and more useful for analysis and optimization.
Throughout the conversation, Anani shares his first-hand experience implementing automated processes at Computrol, and Elliott wraps up with an example in which data collected for one manufacturing step can actually be leveraged to achieve a completely unrelated quality check once both process steps can access the same data.

Ever since high density interconnect (HDI) was created in 1982 by Hewlett-Packard to package its first 32-bit computer powered by a single chip, it has continued to evolve and provide the solutions for miniaturized products. The leading edge of HDI technology became the process used for organic flip-chip packaging for the semiconductor industry. The two distinct markets—IC substrates and product-system integration—are now colliding and utilizing the same ultra-HDI manufacturing processes.
