From Legacy Machines to Manufacturing Intelligence
How Flex uses ArchFX to connect and analyze all Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lines globally
Watch as John Wrenn, Chief Technology Officer, Information Technology for Flex, discusses the initiative that won Flex a 2020 Manufacturing Leadership Council Award for Enterprise Integration Technology Leadership
“Arch is being deployed across many of
our digital factories to capture the relevant
analytics that help us drive production
efficiencies, process automation, and
predictive analytics. They can pull raw data
from new and existing machines to help
us generate actionable metrics. We are
very excited with our partnership; their
technology is very impressive.”
Arch® Global KPIs Solution for Electronics Manufacturing
The Arch® Global KPIs Solution gives manufacturers the accurate, continuously up-to-date view of the performance of their global manufacturing operations. Employees at every level can now focus on the best opportunities for improving manufacturing operations performance and asset utilization.
A Solution to Improve Productivity and Manufacturing Operations
Automatic data from every machine that tells you 1) what your utilization is, 2) where the root
causes are, and 3) the non-obvious actions to drive meaningfully toward your utilization targets.
The Arch® Global KPIs Solution gives manufacturers an incredibly powerful 3-part offering:
- An accurate, continuously up-to-date view of the performance of global manufacturing operations,
- Important insights about where the utilization losses are,
- Actionable insights to recapture valuable losses.
This solution empowers employees at every level to focus on the best opportunities for improving manufacturing operations, performance, and asset utilization.
Give asset managers, equipment engineers, and manufacturing operators at every location
and level the ability to identify opportunities and take initiative to improve utilization
Global, regional, site, area, line and machine views give your employees immediate visibility.
From here, they they can improve results and are empowered to make decisions in real time.
Maximize SMT Line Utilization
Protect and accelerate the ROI of your existing assets and new investments
As you harness the power of your data, expect to add 5-10% utilization, achieving over 5x ROI with a sub 6 months payback. Some some manufacturers can achieve as much as 20-40% gains based on advanced insights.
One of the most valuable assets available to any manufacturer
As technology frees up more data, it’s critical that your data quickly identifies root causes and drives decisive forward movement with actionable analytics.
We collaborate with the world’s leading SMT vendors, including ASM, Fuji, Koh Young, ViTrox and more to provide rich data and actionable insights for SMT manufacturers.
Advanced SMT Machine Insights
Insights to improve utilization and throughput with high quality benchmarks
via ML advanced analytics on complex SMT data sets
- Intensive view of utilization over a specific work order to identify recipe imbalances vs operational losses and frame what you could have gotten back by restructuring your work.
Error Event Analysis
- Understand top stops like fiducial measurement errors and fix the right things at the right times.
- Sort through the extensive data of mispicks and identify the hotspots with positive ROI for preventative maintenance.

RICH PICK-AND-PLACE INSIGHTS
Unlocking trapped PnP data can lead to advanced analytics for your entire SMT line
The PnP machine is the workhorse of the SMT line, and there’s a lot this one machine can tell you about the other machines on the line.
Attrition rates from feeders, blocks, starves; these reports are a valuable tool for any SMT manufacturer looking to capture higher line utilization (LU) and increase ROI from machine assets.

RICH DATA FROM
ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING MACHINES
Unlocking even more advanced insights from all your combined machine data
Operators often report that 80% of all errors can be attributed back to solder issues. Data from these machines can unlock critical quality insights.
Solder Paste Inspection (SPI), Automated Optical Inspection (AOI), and X-ray Inspection (AXI) machines generate data that unlocks valuable operational insights.
Assembly & Test
Productivity across the backend is critical. In-Circuit Testing (ICT) and Functional Tests (FT) produce rich data for quality and utilization analysis.

THE LATEST FROM OUR TEAM
The Cost of Lost Asset Utilization Lost utilization is expensive. It’s as simple as that. Every misplaced part, every recipe imbalance, even if imperceptible, costs money. This is especially true for contract manufacturers with electronics manufacturing...
The accomplishments of our team this past year represent something more than hard work by exceptional people. They represent the unification of a diverse, distributed team working through extraordinary circumstances and times, in an industry marked by an indomitable spirit, supported by world-class partners and customers.
In many cases, the limiting factor for how quickly you can solve problems with data is how quickly you can put together a clean, unified dataset. Once you have clean data, it’s straightforward to get value from it.
