Valor to Feature Manufacturing Visibility and Management Software Tools at SMTAI 2009

Sep 17, 2009

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA — September 2009 — Valor Computerized Systems, Inc., global provider of productivity improvement software across the printed circuit board manufacturing supply chain, announces that it will feature manufacturing visibility and management software tools in booth 712 at the upcoming SMTA International, scheduled to take place October 6-7, 2009 at The Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in San Diego, CA.

Real-time Performance Visibility

Valor’s Manufacturing Visibility Dashboard Solution provides real-time performance visibility. Valor’s dashboards display the key performance indicators (KPIs) that enable critical visibility into each specific operational environment. The dashboards quickly identify trends or patterns in-progress, and help derive the insights needed for early corrective action. The dashboard displays real-time and historical machine, line, and factory level KPIs such as OEE, changeover time, first pass yield, nozzle/feeders errors, scrap and material consumption, and more. Valor or its customers also can create custom dashboards to suit individual manufacturing needs and specific KPIs.

Real-time Process Visibility and Closed Loop Control

Valor also provides real-time process visibility and closed-loop control. Using advanced machine interfaces and real-time data collection, combined with material management, Valor can provide advanced functionality, such as feeder setup verification, material traceability, screen printer setup verification, feeder/tooling maintenance, paperless and analytical repair loops, work order and WIP tracking, moisture sensitive device monitoring and control, and more.

Real-time Drill Down Visibility

Valor’s quality management system is a shop floor traceability and control system designed to improve visibility to quality data, and process metrics from the manufacturing floor.  Quality data and WIP can be viewed in real-time as products move through the factory.  Additionally, Valor provides the tools needed to analyze test and inspection results, and to manage and enforce repair loops for optimal process control and tracking.  Utilizing the tools offered by Valor, users can increase profitability by bringing real-time visibility to their process, therefore improving the response to negative changes in critical yield and DPMO data.  This visibility provides Web-based pivot table-based reporting for analysis of test and inspection results, WIP tracking, root cause analysis, yield improvements, and data for corrective actions.

“We are excited to continuously bring innovative products to the electronics manufacturing market. With today’s market conditions, electronics manufacturers need every edge to help improve profitability and performance. To meet these needs, Valor has a suite of software tools to provide manufacturers with real-time visibility to their factory floor and effective management tools for materials and processes,” said Dan Weitzman, President of Valor Computerized Systems, Inc.
