Elmatica Launches First Step Towards Digital Supply Chain


Reading time ( words)

"The PDF format belongs to the past. Now it's time to take the plunge into full digitalization with a Digital Supply Chain, where data is available for all involved parties at all time, making live tracking of your entire purchasing process possible”, says CEO of Elmatica Didrik Bech.

A more and more digital production line increases efficiency and allows focus on other tasks; that creates a higher value for the company and customers. The supply chain has evolved from some points of contact to complex chains of designers, OEMs, assemblers, brokers, distributors, factories and sub-contractors—all sending data back and forward, doing manual labor trying to interpret. Elmatica is about to change that.

Avoid the Manual Interpretations

“By implementing a digital supply chain we will avoid the manual interpretations, yet share data digitally with all involved parties in the supply chain, providing transparency, predictability and better control of all processes”, says Bech.

“Imagine how things are today, a supply chain built partly on digital communication, pdf, and paper. The tracking and controlling process are time-demanding and it's difficult to have full control. With a Digital Supply Chain, we will have the capability to handle a quote digitally from start to end, by implementing automation, Application Programming Interface (API) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This will provide us with the ability to handle even more requests at a faster speed, with even higher accuracy and with the same amount of employees. It is a win-win situation for all involved in a purchasing process”, says Bech.

Live access to all data for customers

A digitized production line requires a higher demand for efficiency and speed. Customers experience automation, want their RFQs faster and the ability to track the development of their products.

“We have already taken our first steps on the new digital highway by implementing Alfa 1 version of a completely new platform and system for verifying, calculating and storing our offers digital. The new system will make data handling safer and easier to access. By using APIs to automate processes and collect information through Artificial Intelligence, the process will run smoother and be presented to our customers in a precise and improved matter. The new way of handling offers, is the first step towards live access to all data for our customers”, says Bech.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

07/01/2019 | Article by Brandon Sherrieb, Integrated Test Corporation
A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
