SMT topics in focus
The Intelligent Factory stands for a holistic and integrative view of electronics manufacturing that includes in-depth data analysis and utilization as well as advanced software technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and natural language processing (NLP). It integrates all levels from the machine to the line and factory through to the enterprise. As a further development of the Integrated Smart Factory, the Intelligent Factory is the answer to all the challenges of today's SMT production and ensures the right balance between automation and workforce deployment – with a strict focus on ROI.
In the Intelligent Factory, operators are deployed in cross-line expert pools. The specialists receive their work assignments via portable digital devices – prioritized according to their qualifications and with sufficient lead time. Technical and service teams are supported by an AI-based virtual assistant to whom they can simply ask questions via voice. And the ASMPT Academy's modern and target group-specific range of courses makes it easier to refresh knowledge and onboard new employees. In this way, the shortage of skilled employees can be intelligently compensated for and higher productivity in production can be achieved.
