Optimal Electronics to Exhibit Optel MES Software Suite at APEX 2008

Feb 29, 2008

Optel MES solution begins where ERP/MRP ends -- providing the ability to integrate and communicate with production equipment, and interface in a standard way to your company’s ERP/MRP, other MES, and reporting systems.

Optel MES solution begins where ERP/MRP ends -- providing the ability to integrate and communicate with production equipment, and interface in a standard way to your company’s ERP/MRP, other MES, and reporting systems.

Optimal Electronics Corporation, a global provider of innovative software solutions for the control and optimization of the electronics assembly process, announces that it will display its industry leading OptelTM MES software suite, including its award-winning Dynamic Production Scheduling, in booth 2147 at the upcoming APEX 2008 exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place April 1-3, 2008, in Las Vegas.

Optel's Dynamic Production Scheduling is a key Lean Manufacturing software technology that is crucial for today's highly dynamic electronic manufacturing environment. The market has shifted to require high-mix, low-volume manufacturing, with ever-decreasing lead times. This requires companies to be more agile and efficient than ever before if they are to be profitable. The Optel Dynamic Production Scheduling software helps manufacturers meet due dates while eliminating unnecessary changeovers, reducing the changeover times, and minimizing WIP and inventory levels.

Optel Dynamic Production Scheduling takes work orders as input from the ERP/MRP system, scans them for common parts and due dates, and groups them in common setups. These grouped setups, rather than individual work orders, are then scheduled in the most optimum way across all available SMT lines and placement machines to maximize asset utilization. Dynamic Production Scheduling works in concert with the kitting, automated multi-vendor machine programming, and optimization functions in the Optel suite to provide execution and control of the manufacturing process. It is configurable to support multiple optimization objectives and also provides an easy-to-use manual scheduling and rescheduling capability to react to changing demands, such as hot lots and prototype runs.

Optel offers maximum control, flexibility, and interconnectivity with industry-leading assembly line equipment. Visit Optimal Electronics' booth 2147 at APEX for more information about Optel, the best solution for improving manufacturing productivity, visibility and traceability.
