Smart manufacturing for electronics (SME) is an essential part of a holistic digital approach to manufacturing. It provides an integrated platform that connects a framework of engineering/manufacturing operations and systems. One of the benefits of an integrated digital platform is its capacity to synchronize data and analytics on a larger scale, delivering the right information to the right place at the right time.

Electronics companies have digitalized their operations piecemeal over time as their business and processes have evolved. As part of a smart manufacturing strategy, “smart” software solutions optimize the entire manufacturing process and improve overall efficiency and time-to-market.
