Software solutions for Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS)

Become a Cadlog partner to implement Smart Manufacturing in your factory now

Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) and Contract Manufacturing Services (CMS) are the protagonists of the electronics industry in Europe. Today we are in a scenario where the demand is continuously growing, but increasingly differentiated with a high level of customization. While mass production of electronics is typically located in Asia, Europe plays a key role in High Mix Low Volume Manufacturing. This is where Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) and CMS win if they embrace digitization and Smart Manufacturing.

Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) and their customers

Thanks to digitalization, Electronics Manufacturing Services have the opportunity to be real problem solvers, real process optimizers today. When Smart Manufacturing is implemented in their factories, EMS and CMS can invest their time in activities that bring real value to their companies and customers.

The aim of a modern EMS is to provide its customers the highest quality of the product, full respect of delivery times, and proactive service. With Smart Manufacturing a company like this can provide its operators and managers all needed data to take consistent, immediate, and proactive decisions in order to achieve the highest target on quality on time, delivery and efficiency.

To achieve this excellence, Electronics Manufacturing Services don't need to spend a lot of money, buy new machines, or hire new skilled people. They just need to find the right technologies and the right partner to implement Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 on their shop floors.

High Mix Low Volume Manufacturing

High Mix Low Volume Manufacturing is one of the main challenges for EMS. The need to configure and introduce new revisions to the market as quickly as possible is growing. For mass customization electronics manufacturing needs digitalization. Valor Process Preparation is the answer as it creates the setup for the production, the Digital Twin of the manufacturing process, including stencil creation, component rotation, and much more.

In this video, you can see how Roj, an Italian EMS, benefited from the partnership with Cadlog to produce highly customized boards for their client Mares, a manufacturer of scuba equipment.

White Paper

This paper describes an example of Industry 4.0 – the Fraunhofer Future Packaging Line. The Fraunhofer display featured a concept of the world’s first open, multi-vendor, IoT-connected surface mount technology (SMT) line, demonstrating the technology and the mutually beneficial business model opportunities that arise from IoT connectivity.

The Electronic & High Technology Market Structure

The Electronic Market can be divided into 3 big segments:

  1. Components manufacturers (passive components, semiconductors)
  2. Electronics Contract Manufacturing (EMS & ODM)
  3. OEMs (Consumer Electronics, Automotive Electronics, …)

To find your ways around all these acronyms, lets' recall their main definitions.

Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) is a term used for companies that design, manufacture, test, distribute, and provide return/repair services for electronic components and assemblies for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The concept is also referred to as Electronics Contract Manufacturing (ECM).

An Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) is a company that designs and manufactures a product, as specified, that is eventually rebranded by another firm for sale, typically an OEM. Some companies act both as EMS and ODM.

An Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) can be either a company that markets a complete product with its brand or a company that makes a part or subsystem that is used in another company's end product.
