The Challenge

A production yield of <90% FPY brought to their immediate attention that there is an equipment issue somewhere within the production line. They busied themselves with aggregating all the data sets from each of the functional tester systems to try to figure out what was causing the low production yield. In total, they spent approximately 6 months trying to root the cause of the issue, which turned out to be one of the fixtures for the product used by the functional test systems

. After much work, monitoring, and what seemed like a reasonable corrective action, they decided to perform monthly maintenance to all the fixtures on the Functional Tester lines to rectify the FPY loss.

PathWave Manufacturing Analytics

About The Customer

PathWave Manufacturing Analytics is an Industry 4.0 ready electronics manufacturing data analytics platform that performs real-time advanced analytics using information extracted from big data, such as manufacturing processes, tests, and equipment data agnostically.

The Solution

After the automated analysis of the historical data was completed by the PMA platform, it took a Keysight Field Engineer approximately 5 minutes to find the problematic fixture and the reason behind its issues. This process proved that PMA is able to save time by reducing this investigation from 6 months to just 5 mins.

PMA has a customizable report generation tool that allows the user to generate a report based on their preferences. The static reports generated, of interesting time ranges, can then be downloaded in PDF format for easy sharing and tracking. The user can share the relevant charts of exactly what the production line was experiencing for any issues or just for the tracking purposes of a particular project.
