ASM Production Planner

Production Planning is made simple

The typical EMS production environment is dynamic and sometimes chaotic. It is a big task to manage the production schedules according to the production plan dictated by the ERP systems. Whenever a production plan is generated, it has to be tallied with the current production status at the production floor. This makes production planning a challenge, as the gap between ideal planning and actual progress is often present but has to be minimised.

Whenever a production plan is generated, it has to be tallied with the current production status at the production floor. This makes production planning a challenge, as the gap between ideal planning and actual progress is often present but has to be minimised.

With ASM Production Planner, the scheduling software for your SMT production, the planners’ job is made easier.

During the planning stage, ASM factors in important conditions that affect the planner into the software tool.
- Real-time extraction of current production status
It allows more realistic planning since any jobs that were unable to complete on-time are loaded into the new planning screen.
- Product clustering and assignment to lines based on best cycle-time, least setup changeovers or maximum available hours. This makes the planning job much easier as the tool removes the need for technical experience. In the background, it runs SIPLACE SiCluster Multiline optimisation which is built-in to the planner software such that it automatically assigns products to the correct lines based on process capabilities.

Other factors include least number of setup changeovers, maximum line utilisation and total available production time. The planner can choose which factor is a priority and customise the result to that, while keeping in mind the ERP due dates.

The ASM Production Planner does not stop here; it works together with ASM Material Manager. So after each production plan, the respective material picklist information are automatically generated to the warehouse as well as any automated storage systems connected to the ASM Material Manager.

As we move forward, ASM Factory Solutions are designed to provide more automation and intelligence to support our drive towards Industry 4.0.
