YAVNE, Israel Valor Computerized Systems, in response to rapid growth in technology-integration into vehicles, will target automotive manufacturers with its TraceXpert traceability software. The costs and dangers associated with vehicle recalls can be minimized with implementation of a full traceability system, said Henning Maerkedahl, executive vice president at Valor Denmark R&D.
The monitoring and control software addresses a range of risks preventing wrong parts from assembly in the wrong location, detecting and preventing errors with real-time tools, and tracking all components that enter an end-vehicle. Improving equipment utilization, the real-time data collected generates an as-built bill of materials (BOM) for each PCB and variant manufactured. Production processes, including storage of incoming materials, receipt verification, and completed component management, take place with verification through the software to reduce the risk of misplaced components, mis-assembled populated PCBs, and other mistakes that can cause recalls.
