An industry first, Valor will show a complete interoperable manufacturing execution suite designed to integrate solutions that will assist manufacturers in the design, planning, monitoring, control, scheduling, box build, traceability, test and rework processes. The product suite is set to provide a long awaited software solution that encompasses the entire production process, from the receipt of goods into the production inventory locations, through to PCA assembly and test, full system assembly and test, right through to the final packing of the finished goods ready for shipment.
The components of the Valor software solution include vPlan for complete SMT programming and data management, multi-vendor line balancing, program optimization and process setup documents; vManage, for complete SMT/PCB material control, material verification and traceability, and warehouse management, including a unique just-in-time Kanban material delivery module using real-time consumption as part of shop-floor management solutions; and vCheck, a complete PCB quality management solution with AOI/ICT direct interfaces, enforced WIP tracking, repair loop monitoring and control, paperless factory, including synchronized delivery of detailed work instructions for board and system level assembly, and full quality data collection with a business intelligence infrastructure, enabling Web based dynamic reporting for full System Genealogy.
Further, Valor will be demonstrating the Trilogy 5000 design-for-manufacturing (DFM) analysis software, supporting full virtual “prototyping” of the design of an electronics product. The Trilogy 5000 software enables fast off-line simulations to validate physical design characteristics against assembly and test constraints before a first article or pilot run. Valor users can validate critical manufacturing processes in advance, such as solder-joint formation, test-point accessibility, pick-and-place constraints, rework accessibility, and much more.
"Valor is once again pleased to be presenting our software solutions at the APEX conference. The recent introduction of our software platform allows Valor to deliver a comprehensive Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to the electronics marketplace. We encourage our existing and prospective customers, industry partners and suppliers to visit us at the show and to see our latest award winning technology. As a company with a rich history of delivering value to the electronics marketplace, we have really created something special with this latest software solution," said Dan Weitzman, President of Valor Computerized Systems, Inc.
