PanaCIM® Gen 2 Enterprise Edition v10.16.0.0

This section describes the new features and enhancements, which are introduced as part
of the PanaCIM Gen 2 Enterprise Edition version release.

Automatically validates the current recipe against Bill Of Material (BOM) with an upper system, such as ERP or PLM (customer using PLM or ERP to manage recipes).

  • Customer Value: Eliminates outdated/wrong recipe automatically and reduces scrap rate. In past, user would have to manually inspect.
  • Use Case: User can recognize when a recipe changes in the upper-level system, automatically triggering a production stop until the recipe is updated in DGS.

Provide additional information not typically required for traceability. This data can be used for machine learning in support of finding patterns that are not obvious.

  • Customer Value: User has more data input with which they can use in support of machine learning.
  • Use Case: Users leveraging machine learning can utilize this data being collected to strengthen their predictive analytics.

Track NPM/LNB software information and allow exporting via E-Link. This feature also outputs software information and detects changes in software.

  • Customer Value: User can monitor all lines to see if they are running same version of software and compare lines performance.
  • Use Case: User can compare before-and-after effect following software change to identify how production performance has changed.

New report was added to put visibility on planned and unplanned downtimes in a single report.

  • Customer Value: Less reports for user to evaluate, saving time and simplifying process.
  • Use Case: Users looking to identify machine downtimes across their line can do so directly, rather than parsing data from multiple reports.

Added configuration for Trace module to allow user to select what production data to collect for report. Added sight-level configuration for Trace module.

  • Customer Value: Unnecessary data no longer needs to be stored, freeing up storage.
  • Use Case: User is able to configure their Trace data in alignment with their priorities.

Added action ID as part of the barcode parsing mechanism.

  • Customer Value: Enables quick UI switching without needing the user to interact directly with the screen.
  • Use Case: Optimizes user's scanning experience by pairing steps to barcodes.

When performing verification of bulk tray, PanaCIM will now fill the remaining quantity into current quantity.

  • Customer Value: User does not have to calculate remaining quantity manually.

During part scan, operator will be able to see data sent to machine before writing to feeder memory.

  • Customer Value: It will be possible to check status of splicing, current quantity, source of data, etc. This feature allows user to identify data discrepancies.

PanaCIM and Data Warehouse will support export of custom charts to PNG and Excel.

  • Customer Value: Allows user to save data in desired format.

“Unguided mode” of multi-splice and “old part-new part verification mode” (part of MV module) now allows user to filter the list and select specific slot.

  • Customer Value: Simplified process for users to conduct parts scan.

Recipes in “Independent Mode” (part of Trace module) now have LED binning verification support previously available only through LNB or changeover.

  • Customer Value: Allows machine to run in independent mode for LED binning, which enables higher performance (higher production output) in certain conditions.

PanaCIM reports and charts will now support user-defined timestamp format masks, making it possible to adjust grouping to display data in increments (e.g. hour, day, week).

  • Customer Value: Makes it easier to read reports.

Custom charts have new capability to define threshold when displaying data.

  • Customer Value: Reading reports made easier by allowing user to withhold unnecessary data. Able to configure on one or multiple lines (e.g. user wants to see what feeders are underperforming. If all feeders are performing higher than expected, none will show up as issue).

Validation added to confirm that number of placements during production matches recipe data (mandatory with trace validation).

  • Customer Value: Simplifies configuration of line by detecting misconfiguration, speeding up initial line setup.

Board ID added to trace lock.

  • Customer Value: Reduce time for taking action on missing trace data.

Added lot name to Trace report and filter.

  • Customer Value: Simplifies viewing reports for Trace module.

Share licenses of federated lines between different versions of PanaCIM (note: borrowing licenses only possible from system with higher version).

  • Customer Value: Reduce time needed for line reconfigurations.

PanaCIM Gen 2 Enterprise Edition v10.14.0.0

This section describes the new features and enhancements, which are introduced as part
of the PanaCIM Gen 2 Enterprise Edition release.

PanaCIM will provide feature to control production with LEDs.

  • Customer Value: User can define dependency between placements and expected part number and/or class using DGS as program generation.
  • Use Case: User can control which resistor should be used based on LED that was placed.

PanaCIM will allow user to configure machine events to machine state for NPMs. A new report has been added to track state and duration. Based on configuration, a 540 message will be sent via E-Link to upper systems.

  • Customer Value: User has additional report they can use to monitor production and conduct analysis, allowing them to measure production in such a way as to identify the cause for downtime. Operator no longer needs to manually input downtime events and can get them through automated machine events.
  • Use Case: User may use states in production error exhaust, pre-process wait, post-process wait, process error; user can use their state model and configure within PanaCIM and automatically capture these events from the machine.

PanaCIM will allow user to select which of the data in the E-Link is considered persistent.

  • Customer Value: User can configure which data is persistent and no longer has to build out logic on their system to process outdated or out-of-sequence messages.

PanaCIM will record information about LCR validation from NPM trace data that is performed using built-in LCR or with LCR feeder.

  • Customer Value: LCR Validation can be performed automatically without operator.

PanaCIM will compress and store daily logs.

  • Customer Value: Logs can be retrieved faster and are available to download from Factory Manager.

A button was added to "Select All" rows in multi-level report.

  • Customer Value: Multi-level reports have improved usability.

The report will have option to generate a separate file with breakdown by product.

  • Customer Value: Improved usability allows user to generate a by-product breakdown with "one-click".
