Electronics

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for electronics manufacturers running job shop, batch production or production lines.

The UK electronics industry contributes £16 billion to the economy every year and employs 300,000 people.

The electronics sector contributes a massive £16 billion to the UK economy every year, and employs more than 300,000 people. What’s more, with the UK remaining the largest European market for high-end consumer electronics, and demand for non-consumer products also high, its importance is expected to continue growing.

That’s not to say things are easy for the 12,000-plus companies working in the sector. These organisations face a long list of unique challenges that, when combined, can make planning and scheduling operations particularly difficult.

Constant innovation

Things change quickly and regularly in the electronics sector. Consumer expectations evolve and manufacturers need to adapt to keep up. Processes, therefore, must be agile.

Intense competition

The recent boom in demand has created a wave of new manufacturers, as well as more efficient plants and processes. Cost-efficiency must be a priority for those looking to compete.

Increased regulations

The world’s growing reliance on technology and, more specifically, data, has led to the introduction of new, stricter regulations for manufacturers to abide.

Long lead times

Long lead times complicate the electronics supply chain, making it more difficult for companies to plan ahead effectively. Agile working also becomes tough, with manufacturers forced to find new ways of looking beyond the short-term future.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.

LYNQ is built to complement the best-of-breed ERP systems your company already relies on, and can improve operations in a number of ways.

  • Use auto-scheduling to load work to machines, and rely on drag-and-drop scheduling to create optimised plans that benefit your customers and your bottom line.
  • Record and keep track of the reasons for quality issues with the help of user-friendly messaging systems and online forms.
  • Connect your factory floor to keep a closer eye on activity, and make it easier to spot opportunities for efficiency improvements.

Companies across the electronics sector are already using LYNQ to boost productivity and, ultimately, revenue.
