VSI Expects Robust Performance in H2 FY17

Reading time ( words)

V.S. Industry Berhad (VSI), the largest EMS firm in Malaysia, expects robust business performance in the second half of financial year 2017 (H2 FY17) as sales orders gain momentum, thereby pushing production volume and efficiency to optimal level.

Speaking after the company’s 34th Annual General Meeting (AGM), Datuk S. Y. Gan, managing director, said, “We will continue to benefit from the sustained strong sales growth of our key clients, notwithstanding the current economic conditions. The tangible results from this should be apparent in the second half of our financial year 2017, where we expect to post a stronger set of results. For our two Malaysian operations, sales orders are gradually coming in from our key clients, pushing the production volume and efficiency to reach optimal level and we anticipate the respective revenue contribution from some of our key clients to reach new level.”

The Group has been busy expanding its production capacity for box-build assembly over the past few months since it was awarded the vertical integration (VI) status by its key UK-based client earlier in 2016. The plan is to increase the box-build capacity to three million sets per annum from the current negligible amount. The first production line is already up and running with more lines scheduled to come on-stream soon.

Meanwhile, operations at its facilities in Zhuhai, China are picking up pace as well since November 2016, producing a new high-end air purifier model for one of its local clients. The air purifier model was fully designed by VSI and has received very encouraging response from end-user consumers during a recent soft-launch event by the client. Management endeavors the operations in China to return to the black in FY17.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
