Role-based low-code UX in electronics production

Estimated Watching Time: 45 minutes


Role-Based Low-Code UX in Electronics Production

The use of manufacturing software is very specific to the industry in which it is applied. In the electronics industry, processes vary from highly automated, equipment-centric SMT/PCBA to medium or low automation at THT or final assembly operations. Many different software systems are often used on the shop floor, resulting in inefficiencies for the operators, engineers, and plant managers. As the workforce relies on personalized user experience and guided navigation at the point of use to execute tasks efficiently and reduce task time, continuous product and process improvement is achieved.

With our new functionalities, electronics manufacturers can now ensure that quality and efficiency are built into the production process.

Revolutionizing user experience for electronics manufacturers through role-based, low-code apps, enabled through the industry-leading Mendix platform

We unleash the power of Mendix by combining our MES, Opcenter Execution, with role-based, fully customizable user interfaces. This makes our solution not only role-based but also industry-specific and process-centric. Customers can take ownership of personalization and leverage low code to map processes perfectly or even harmonize their end-to-end solutions, empowering their competitive position.

With this solution, the workforce comfort is optimized, the MES is easy to adapt, and the personalization is owned by the customer.
