ADVERTORIAL Creating a Smart Factory Optimize production with M2M communication Built on the principles of Industry 4.0, the fully realized Smart Factory is linked with machines from other companies in M2M communication. As it is the market trend, all electrical devices want to be connected to a network with IoT and smart grids, and this will help to build a more sustainable society. The goal behind this is the auto mation of product changeover, printing and assembly process as well as maintenance and other tasks required for production. In addition, processes should be monitored to intervene where parameters must be changed. The demand for products is becoming increasingly diverse and complicated, through the globalization that has arisen in keeping with the times and changes in the market. The goal of Smart Factory is to provide autonomy that gives enough flexibility to support changes in user needs and to greatly increase productivity through further optimization. From our point of view, the Smart Factory process consists of the following three stages which will contribute to users achieving a truly Smart Factory: • Semi-automation By automating the work which is repeatedly performed manually, variance and waste in work will be eliminated and production activities will be kept stable • Automation Improving productivity and stabilizing quality are achieved through automating manual work and linking machines • Autonomization From the large volume of data, collected by the production system, rules and criteria standards as well as a growing production system are created in which optimum selections and decisions are made in cooperation with people Smart Factory Concept The Smart Factory will control four main areas and will make it so that there are no gaps between actual results and control indicators as well as production plans. This means that even there are changes in demands, production is ramped up and performed (real) according to the simulated plans on the computers (virtual). This is achieved with a quad closedloop system: • Engineering loop (design) – Optimize equipment configurations – Automatic production program creation – Automatic creation of production plans for multiple lines • Logistics loop (logistics) – Display the required items – Issue the required instructions when needed – Deliver the required volumes to the required locations – Minimize the production line downtime by reducing stops and waste due to stagnation • Process loop (manufacturing) – Entire SMT line management • Analytics loop (analysis) – Visualizing the quality built into processes – Dashboard supporting collaboration between people and automatic lines – Changing work styles to take advantage of IT greatly improves productivity Summary In order to contribute to making a smart factory for users, production companies had to expand the management area from just the placing machine system, which has been the focal point of the past, to the entire SMT line. This provides entire line optimization (horizontal integration). Furthermore, directly or indirectly linking to key user systems facilitates vertical integration between production management and manufacturing, and contributes to smarter manufac- 24 EPP EUROPE May 2018

Supply chain management Provides valuable information to staff and assists in building knowledge Smart Factory roadmap the data for processes across entire lines, the furthering of automation for changeover, printing and assembly processes, maintenance and other tasks required for production, will in turn give birth to a new generation of manufacturing factories. In Smart Factory, all of the SMT processes are connected together and optimized. The area of wearable technology will continue to grow with smart devices (such as smartphones and tablets, watches, glasses, and even clothes) beginning to acquire advanced functions. The quantity of products available will greatly increase. As the development of automated guided technology progresses, the ratio of electronic parts and devices is going to greatly increase. turing where only what is needed is produced, when needed, only in the necessary volume, and within the determined lead time. Smart Factory mainly considers the manufacturing, which can reach the user’s quality cost and delivery goals as well as reducing the load on people to achieve a friendly working environment. It provides flexible support for diversified demands and changes in production technology as well as providing value added total solutions which suit user demands. Conclusion This lecture deals with the production in the most modern way and that machines from different manufacturers are networked in a Smart Factory via M2M communication. A production environment is created in which manufacturing plants and logistics systems are largely self-organizing and communicating together without human intervention. Statement In previous production management systems, individual machines were managed and optimized. By breaking down the walls which restrict enterprises to construct an environment with the freedom to connect openly, and by managing Since 1991, FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH has been a direct subsidiary of the Japanese FUJI CORPORATION, working on the European market and based in Kelsterbach (Germany). As a strong and competent partner, FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION can look back on more than 27 years of best service and sales support in the area of electronic placement systems for full-line suppliers. With this wealth of experience, FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION can cover all areas of a modern production – from highly flexible placement systems in the high mix to complete assembly lines in the high volume. Innovative placement systems from the NXT- and AIMEX-series are the basis of your SMT requirements. Continuously new innovations bring Fuji always to the top of the market.
