New Book Helps Transform Industry 4.0 Concepts Into Reality


Reading time ( words)

Bring your manufacturing practices into the digital age with The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Advanced Manufacturing in the Digital Age—the latest title in our educational library. The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… is an ongoing series dedicated to educating those in the circuit board assembly sector, and serves as a valuable resource for electronics industry professionals seeking the most relevant information available. 

Oren Manor from Mentor, a Siemens Business, explores the most important steps to consider when building a digital manufacturing company that transforms Industry 4.0 concepts into reality. Industry 4.0 has the power to drive quantifiable change in the manufacturing industry and transform how companies work, collaborate, and serve their customers; it can also create a positive, cultural shift across an organization.

Farid Anani, VP of operations at Computrol Inc., said, “This book is a must-read for those embarking on their IIoT journey; it provides a very accurate description of preparation requirements and risks to consider and avoid, not just technologically, but also organizationally."

This book is essential reading for anyone looking for a holistic, systematic approach to leverage new and emerging technologies. The benefits are clear: fewer machine failures, reduced scrap and downtime issues, and improved throughput and productivity.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

12/30/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data

12/16/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
