We have developed the ASYS Material Software together with MOTIVES a member of the ASYS Group. The Software provides a modern, web-based and modular product platform that takes your quality management to a new level.
The Factory Conductor is a modular link between ERP and the production lines of the entire electronics manufacturing industry and supports manufacturer-independent process optimization. The system can easily be extended by customer-specific workflows. In addition, the hardware of a 3rd party supplier can also be integrated.

The material supply of the shop floor provides a logistical challenge. The material consumption is high and the component reels run quickly and frequently empty. Therefore, splicing is essential at an early stage and direct upgrading is necessary when the machine is at a standstill. The Factory Conductor provides the solution for the multi-stage material flow between the main warehouse, production warehouse and the production lines in the material management module in combination with the order management module:
Observe, calculating and controlling the material flow just in time.
The module Detailed Order Planning of the FactoryConductor is an effective tool for precise order planning of the entire electronics production (across lines and machines). The planner is supported in the manual creation of the order sequence by the display of important information. The user interface is clear and intuitive. Individual views can be created by the user. This enables optimal transparency of the current and planned order processing. In addition, the orders and their essential times are displayed graphically in Gantt diagrams. In addition, the software tool "Automatic Planner" enables detailed job planning for SMD lines to be performed in a separate simulation area. Several simulation results are generated, deleted and compared. The best simulation result is transferred to the live planning. The automatic planner distributes selected production orders to 1-n lines. The result is influenced by parameters (weighting delivery date, number of setup changes) which are set by the planner. The result can also be changed manually afterwards.
The Operating Data display (ODD) module of the FactoryConductor provides the perfect solution for displaying standardized KPI indicators such as Overall Plant Effectiveness (OEE) and individual views of the entire production line. Several tabs are available for a parallel view. The standardized machine information is displayed for all machine types. State-of-the-art technology enables event-controlled, up-todate displays that present the events on the production line online. An evaluation over a past period is possible at any time. By comparing target and actual values, production errors and quality deviations are detected promptly. Conversely, the effect of implemented improvement measures can be displayed directly and transparently. This makes the FactoryConductors quality management an extremely helpful tool for visualizing and supporting the analysis of the entire SMD production.
With the FactoryConductor Material Hitlist module, it is possible to ensure continuous production and achieve greater productivity - thanks to advanced information management on the line. The hitlist predicts the next tasks for the line operator on the machines of a line. By quickly informing the operator about expected station downtimes, the operator can take timely measures to minimize downtime and increase production effciency. The web-based application enables the display on a clearly visible large screen hanging above the line as well as a workstation computer in the production preparation or control station.
- Display forecast of remaining time per container
- Immediate display of production stops
