Shenzhen, China — Optel Software, a global provider of smart software solutions for the electronics assembly industry, announces that it has been awarded a 2018 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Special Systems Mobile Smart Factory for its Optel Mobile Smart Factory. The award was presented to the company during an April 25, 2018 ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China.
Mobile solutions are at the heart of the Smart Factory as well as an important step toward the future, which will be automated electronics assembly without operators. Customers demand mobile solutions, where a mobile device can manage one or more assembly lines, instead of the traditional way of one PC per machine.
Optel mobile solutions include: real-time production control, materials management with electronic Kanban, line setup verification, component traceability data collection and reporting, and MES functions. Additionally, the Optel Mobile Smart Factory offers real-time machine performance monitoring, component consumption and scrap data collection, and feedback to the ERP system for inventory adjustments to avoid unexpected part shortages.
Texas Wai Sze, China Sales Manager at Optel Software (Shenzhen) commented, “We feel privileged and proud to be recognized for our Smart Factory mobile software solutions. We have been implementing our new approach in China companies and expect to continue our aggressive market gains in China and Asia.”
