Reading time ( words)

Banner Engineering has completed the implementation of Optel software for production scheduling and materials management on ASM lines at their plants in Minneapolis and Suzhou (China). Banner Engineering is a worldwide leader in industrial automation.

“Because of the complex nature of our products and a very high-mix production environment, we needed to find a solution for large, frequent setups and inexact inventory levels,” said the lead Banner engineer on the project. “Optel helped to solve our problems by allowing us to create grouped work order setups, and providing inventory accuracy and traceability through a comprehensive materials management system. The materials management system allows for materials receiving, barcoding, storing and verification, plus integration with our ERP system for real-time component consumption and scrap deduction. We have a long and positive experience working with Optimal Electronics, and we are very satisfied with the quality of Optel software and the support that Optimal Electronics provides.”

Optimal Electronics recently received a 2017 Global Technology award at the productronica trade fair in Munich, Germany for its Optel Mobile Smart Factory implemented at Banner plants. Optel is an integrated software suite of smart solutions for dynamic production scheduling, line balancing, multi-vendor machine programming and optimization, real-time materials management, component and process traceability, and quality management. This integrated offering is supported by the company’s extensive application experience to help electronics assembly manufacturers achieve their production and quality goals.
