SigmaTron International Automates Workflow, Shortens Engineering Change-Order Sign-Offs by Four Days

SigmaTron International Inc. is a contract manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs), wiring assemblies, and turn-key electronic products, serving original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the telecommunications, appliance, industrial, fitness, medical, and aviation sectors. The company has industry-certified manufacturing plants in the United States, Mexico, China, and Vietnam. At any time, SigmaTron is processing and managing information on several thousand assemblies, with tens of thousands of components, over seven manufacturing sites.

SigmaTron’s customers look to the company to help accelerate their times to market. As such, the company must be able to effectively collaborate with its clients, including managing documentation for and changes to the very complex and often highly-customized products it manufactures. Sharing product information with the various stakeholders in the engineering and manufacturing process is essential.

After acquiring multiple companies, SigmaTron began to struggle with integrating various silos of electronic-product documentation, spanning multiple continents. The company had been using Oracle’s Agile Product Collaboration in one facility to effectively track engineering change orders (ECOs) for its high-tech telecom and medical-industry customers. It looked to expand use of the solution to new locations to facilitate product lifecycle management across the growing enterprise.

To establish a single system of record for all electronics product information, SigmaTron upgraded its Agile Product Collaboration and extended the implementation to two other manufacturing sites. With the upgraded solution, SigmaTron improved manufacturing efficiency and its ability to adapt and customize products to meet specific customer requirements. With improved product data transparency and collaboration across borders, SigmaTron now has more flexibility in scheduling production across various manufacturing facilities—which helps it to better balance production. The company is also benefitting from prebuilt integration between Oracle’s AutoVue enterprise-visualization solutions and Agile Product Collaboration—facilitating document review and supporting real-time collaboration, while reducing reliance on physical documents.

Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization

The biggest challenge that we have as enterprise users is to quickly find the information we need in order to make the most optimal business decisions on a daily basis. Now, the challenge is that information is there, somewhere, but it is typically distributed across a mass of data and screens. So how do you “see” this information quickly and easily? How can we present “less” while delivering “more”? That is the objective of Oracle’s Next Generation Visualization, which will be presented at the Oracle Value Chain Summit (San Francisco, Feb 4-6, 2013) during a session entitled “Seeing the Forest – Next Generation Visualization” (Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 3:15 pm). It is not about new skins and layouts, it is about a radical re-think of how Enterprise Applications should interact with users. The session will show how Oracle Fusion Applications is embracing new paradigms for presenting, interpreting and interacting with complex business information in a simplified and compelling way so that they can see the forest through the trees! Don’t miss this opportunity to get exclusive sneak peeks at ground-breaking technology! We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

How to be omniscient ...

OK, so now that I have your attention … let’s not get carried away … we’re not taking about a supreme being here … we all know, it’s not possible to know everything … but what if you could have access to the right information whenever you wanted it ….

Well, a couple of decades ago, that would have been possible only if you could have superhuman speed and lived in a library, but nowadays we can do that by just using internet search engines.

Remember how we went through a phase of having too much information on our finger tips and people typically referred to it as an ‘information overload’ era. Well, the information is still there, but Internet search engines changed the landscape by making that information accessible and meaningful. Today, we are so spoiled to get the right info on the first page of our search results that we rarely go to the 2nd page. We even don’t bother to remember things anymore since we can just ‘google’ it.

That’s all fine with the information that is publicly available. What about your intellectual property which needs to be secure and reside within the walls of your organization? Don’t you want to have the same type of access internally? I am sure the answer is yes, but then you might wonder... how?

Well, all you need is a crawler to go look for documents, extract text from them, index them and then allow the users to easily search and locate them. You may say … this can easily be done today with my operating system. True, but that’s from a personal productivity stand point because OS’s can search as long as your files are accessible to them. However, in a large organization, your documents are probably scattered across multiple data stores, which have different interfaces and a wide range of security restrictions. What if you are dealing with a lot of CAD data which cannot be searched by a typical OS?

What you need is then an application that can retrieve information from many different data sources and support many types of file formats. As far as I know, there is no vendor that can provide a solution out of the box that can reach out and get information from multiple data sources, support all types of engineering and office documents, index them and then allow the end user to search them securely.

One such solution that we have built is the combination of Oracle Universal Content Management (UCM), Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) and AutoVue, which is available today. This solution is very unique because of the following reasons:

  • As long as you have Oracle UCM and AutoVue, there is no additional cost to using this solution since Secure Enterprise Search is shipped with UCM with a restricted use license.
  • AutoVue supports many many file types, including Office, PDF, 2d and 3D, so the chances are your file type is already covered
  • The solution is very easy to use, as it has a google-like interface, which is familiar to most, so you don’t need to be a DBA or administrator to use it. If you also have the VueLink for UCM, you can view the documents directly from the search results
  • SES supports a multitude of other content repositories as well, so the solution can easily be extended (with a full licence of SES and relevant Connectors ) to allow other data sources to be searched; and if your data source is not supported by SES, it allows building custom add-ons by exposing standards based APIs
  • Finally, since you have AutoVue as part of this solution, you an also take advantage of many other great features of AutoVue such as viewing, annotation, comparison, measurement, digital mockup, real-time collaboration etc. etc.

So perhaps this solution will not make you omniscient … but at least you can make the right decisions, save time and have access to the most up to date information in your enterprise, and do all this quickly, easily and securely.
