Predesign of FMS for Small-Batch Production of Electronic Cards

Objective

The objective of the project was to produce a provisional specification for an application and development Centre.
The programme was as follows:
-study of demand and production of PCBs by SMEs in Europe
-study of assembly methods and return on investment versus volume and variety
-analysis of present and future assembly machines, soldering technologies, inspection, automated materials handling and warehousing
-specification of Centre facilities, including integration with CAD/CAE, manufacturing, planning and control and transport and storage.
The objective of the project was to produce a provisional specification for an application and development centre.
The programme was as follows: study of demand and production of printed circuit boards (PCB) by small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in Europe; study of assembly methods and return on investment versus volume and variety; analysis of present and future assembly machines, soldering technologies, inspection, automated materials handling and warehousing; specification of centre facilities, including integration with computer aided design/computer aided engineering (CAD/CAE), manufacturing, planning and control and transport and storage.
The study results are being used directly by the three partners and are available to other SMEs involved in PCB production for the selection of manufacturing hardware and the configuration of manufacturing systems.
