  • Review the full specification of your SMT production lines
  • Inspect the physical condition of each machine
  • Assess material handling
  • Monitor and document machine performance during actual production

Process Development

  • Identify production bottlenecks and defective output ratios
  • Compare productivity of SMT equipment versus maximum output ratios
  • Develop the SMT line productivity improvement plan

Training & Optimization

  • Work with the on-site production team to implement the SMT line productivity improvement plan
  • Train on-site SMT technicians and operators on proper maintenance scheduling and techniques
  • Train SMT operator for improved production handling
  • Formulate and instruct the on-site team on protocol for follow-up monitoring
  • Conduct post-mortem review on productivity improvements

Benefits of SMT Optimization
