  • Prescribe real-time adaptive test limits with optimized dynamic part averaging testing
  • Leverage transformed data and insights for horizontal and vertical systems to optimize processes

Improve Insights

Achieving top-line revenue with the finest board quality and the highest possible production throughput is the ultimate manufacturing goal. High retest rates can slow production and negatively impact time-to-market for EMS providers. See how PathWave Manufacturing Analytics, an Industry 4.0 data analytics solution, helped one global EMS company improve their time-to-market.

Improve Yield and Root Cause Analysis

Today’s vehicles host a large network of complex and connected devices, each one optimized for power efficiency, communications, data processing, and latency. As a result, electronic manufacturers now have more data to process, analyze, and interpret; making big data analytics a necessity on the manufacturing floor.

With the increasing complexity of functional test failures or scrap issues, it is critical to identify the root causes to maintain or improve production yields. See how PathWave Manufacturing Analytics helped a major automotive electronics manufacturer identify issues in RCA to achieve yield improvements.

Big Data: Drowning In Alerts

Big data analytics can provide big returns, but at the same time it will produce large amounts of alerts. When there are almost hundred of alerts generated and sent every day, it will be overwhelming and difficult for users to disposition them in a timely manner. In fact, alert fatigue has become a challenge to overcome in electronics manufacturing industries and it is something not usually addressed up front when architecting the solution.

PMA’s anomaly alert scoring model combines domain knowledge in Test & Measurement with data science to highlight only the most severe alerts.

PMA and ISO 27001

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental organization and the world's largest developer of voluntary international standards. ISO 27001 helps organizations treat data security seriously, putting in systems and processes to safeguard against the risk of security breaches or data misuse.

PathWave Manufacturing Analytics (PMA) places great importance on data security, especially customer data. The purpose of the information security management system is to protect the data's confidentiality, availability, and integrity.

PathWave Manufacturing Analytics (PMA) software has been validated to comply with all the physical, logical, process, and management controls specified by ISO 27001:2013 Certification for Information Security Management System (ISMS).
