Frontline Launches InShop Data Analysis Software


Reading time ( words)

Frontline, a software PCB solutions subsidiary of Orbotech, has launched InShop® ─ a new Industry 4.0 software solution for PCB manufacturers. InShop will provide printed circuit board manufacturers with fast and insightful analysis of data from across the production floor to monitor operations and detect anomalies in near-real time. This advanced solution will help improve manufacturing operational KPIs (yield, throughput and quality), enabling faster time-to-market and improved process stabilization. Orbotech is a KLA company.

"InShop allows PCB manufacturers to exploit the massive amounts of data generated from shop floor machines and turn it into actionable insights for rapid problem solving,” says Yovav Sameah, president, Frontline PCB Solutions. “We want to provide manufacturers with a clear view of the data they collect as well as speed up the detection of problems and anomalies before they start to impact yield and efficiency."

While massive amounts of machine data are created daily during the manufacturing process, it has become clear that in order to maximize manufacturers' production quality and efficiency, data needs to be collected, measured, analyzed and immediately acted upon. These steps are essential as high-end electronics manufacturing becomes increasingly competitive and PCB shops look for ways to increase their differentiation. InShop’s advanced analysis and industry 4.0 capabilities will enable PCB manufacturers to gather and analyze huge quantities of data and make near-real time decisions based on the resulting actionable intelligence. 

InShop's advantage in PCB data analysis is based on Frontline's 25 years of experience and expertise in PCB production, its in-depth understanding of the industry and its leadership of the CAM and engineering software solutions market. By leveraging data collected from various machines on the shop floor including process parameters, machine utilization, and scrap data, InShop identifies anomalies and trends, enabling the manufacturer to perform root cause analyses and present actionable insights to transform manufacturing quality and efficiency.
InShop, Frontline’s Industry 4.0 solution, is part of Frontline’s world-leading line of integrated software solutions that automates the entire pre-production process for PCB manufacturing, from preparing a quote to process planning and CAM, all the way to the production floor.

Trade shows and technical conferences haven’t died; they’ve just moved online. The trade show season continues in virtual full force this week, and event coverage dominates the top five this week. Surprisingly, I don’t see events as this week’s theme. No, this week’s theme is “pundits.” We have Walt Custer’s industry outlook, seven experts on additive electronics, a designers conference keynote, and the IPC’s government relations expert. Don’t get me wrong: These folks are asked to speak to the industry for a good reason. They know their subject matter, and they present it skillfully. This week’s top five picks are worth reading.
