As the industry continues the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers need comprehensive digital twins to overcome pressing challenges. These include:
- Decreased batch sizes
- Siloed mechanical and electrical domains
- Supply chain disruptions
- Silo-based inefficiencies and errors
Leveraging a digital twin for full virtualization of PCB assembly, inspection and testing processes provides the enterprise with access to fully synchronized data. This data opens the door for opportunities to better collaborate, reduce errors and maximize profitability.
Improve collaboration for better profitability and faster NPI
A comprehensive PCB digital twin allows for the early discovery of design and manufacturing errors before the work plan is passed to the shop floor. It involves establishing a synchronized data backbone that provides accurate, up-to-date information to engineers across the manufacturing organization.
