About the client
Incorporated in the year 1984, the client manufactures and supplies an entire range of digital and analog ignition products and portable engines to some of the largest automobile OEMs in the country. Adhering to traceability compliance requirements sought by their customers (OEMs) is a critical component of their success.
The business imperative for traceability compliance in electronic manufacturing services companies has long been established. And the client is no different. They wanted to achieve 100% component level traceability in PCB manufacturing processes as part of a compliance mandate set by their customer, a global OEM giant.
The complexities involved in electronics manufacturing traceability are reasonably large and characterized by factors such as short product lifecycles, miniaturization and use of multiple machine-driven technologies, making it extremely difficult to track errors during production. Quality assurance therefore becomes an intrinsic need requiring validation at every stage of manufacturing. The client wanted to incorporate the ‘poka-yoke’ system to eliminate scope of product defects. They needed an agile and flexible traceability solution that could integrate the data from all machines, automate manufacturing rules and maximize their production efficiency.
