Wu Shi Jun, CIO of Topscomm, stated, "Our goals for the MES project are to improve our material logistics and automation efficiency. We will be able to lower costs, reduce the number of operators, improve production transparency and manage and maintain equipment more effectively. We plan to move to automated production planning and upgrade our automated production to create truly efficient and intelligent smart factories."

Critical Manufacturing was selected because of its modern architecture and advanced Industry 4.0, equipment integration and automation capabilities. Topscomm's strong relationship with ASM Assembly Systems Ltd was an important factor because of its long and successful partnership over the past 20 years.

Dave Trail, VP Electronics Segment at Critical Manufacturing, said, "The combination of vast SMT (surface mount technology) equipment and process knowledge and the joint ASM and Critical Manufacturing strategic roadmap for enabling the smart factories of the future make Critical Manufacturing MES the perfect solution to meet Topscomm's needs. Our MES software will provide Qingdao Topscomm with a complete intelligent solution to help integrate and coordinate many different brands of equipment, robots and software systems. It will also enable intelligent logistics, lean production, automatic scheduling, zero defect quality management, and advanced production visualization and analytics, thereby increasing production efficiency, reducing costs and shortening production cycles."

Wu Shi Jun, CIO of Topscomm, added, "The Critical Manufacturing MES solution will allow us to transform efficiencies and become a paragon for Smart Manufacturing in Greater China. In the future, we look forward to collaborating with Critical Manufacturing and ASM to demonstrate our intelligent factories as part of their smart network reference program."
