NEOTech Improves Efficiency at Agave Site


Reading time ( words)

NEOTech, a leading provider of manufacturing technology and supply chain solutions for brand name OEMs in the industrial, medical and mil/aero markets, is pleased to announce that its Agave site in Mexico has become more streamlined and efficient.

“We will always find new ways at making our processes better to improve efficiency,” said Kunal Sharma, NEOTech’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Part of our commitment to our customers is to provide high-quality products and world-class customer service.”

NEOTech’s Agave site recently proved that continuous improvements are always possible. Tapping into the experience of each team member, the management team went to the “Gemba” looking for methods to improve efficiency with their receiving inspection process. With everyone’s voice being equal, they were able to identify and implement improvements in their receiving inspection process, reducing cycle times by half. This effort also resulted in team improvements in lead times and reduced inventory discrepancies.

Sharma added, “As part of our continuous improvement philosophy, we always think about new possibilities – this is part of our core values as a company. We strive to always do better. At NEOTech, We Make Amazing Things Happen.” 

The Agave facility enables NEOTech to deliver expanded value-add manufacturing services such as complex box build & systems integration, direct fulfillment and repair and refurbishment services as well as engineering solutions such as failure analysis, DFM & DFT and functional test development. 

NEOTech’s business continues growing significantly as customers’ demand increases for the company’s low- to mid-volume services in the industrial, medical and aerospace segments. The NEOTech solution set includes complete product commercialization services that span product design, through manufacturing and aftermarket services that current and new customers have found attractive, fueling an increase in demand for the NEOTech nearshore solution in Mexico.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

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.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
