The Power Of Work-Orders



What was once a simple production job ID, is now a critical part of planning and execution of any PCB Assembly operation.

Understanding and using Work-Orders effectively within an MES solution can reduce process setting errors, operational errors, quality issues, delivery delays, material and product scrap, while at the same time improve your floor's compliance and traceability data with higher productivity.

During this webinar we will show you how Work-Orders provide the opportunity to manage world-class MES systems linking together all aspects of the PCB-A operation.

Understanding of the potential use of work-orders is essential when choosing or working with an MES system in order to provide effective compliance, conformance and traceability.

What You Will Learn

How work-orders can be used to manage:

  • The sequence of operations, routing, enforcement
  • Assignment of tasks, settings, programs and documentation to each process
  • Management of run-time tasks including material deliveries
  • The timing of changeovers and supporting operations
  • Reporting of bottlenecks and performance
  • Materials and process traceability
