Reading time ( words)

Libra Industries, a privately-held systems integration and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, announced the promotion of Cory L. McMaster from “Acting” Operations Director to Senior Director of Operations at its Dallas facility. McMaster has clearly demonstrated a strong devotion and loyalty to the team in Dallas, epitomizing the company’s expectation for its leaders.

McMaster has more than 20 years of experience in the industry, 17 of which have been at the Dallas site. He has held numerous positions including Program Management, Engineering Supervisor, Assembly Manager, and most recently as the Libra Manufacturing Manager. These experiences, as well as his four years working in the FAA Aviation Repair station, have rounded him into a strong leader.  With the retirement of Steve Schwaebler in January 2021, McMaster stepped into the role of “Acting” Operations Director for Dallas. 

Jeff Swenson, Senior VP of Operations, commented, “The leadership role in any plant is a difficult balance of financial performance with a genuine care and support for our most important resource…our people. Cory has demonstrated these qualities each day and on March 12, he accepted the position of Senior Director of Operations.” 

McMaster is an IPC Certified Electronics Program Manager (CEPM). When he isn’t working, he is spending the majority of his time raising his three daughters, and when time allows, he also does some largemouth bass and tournament fishing.

Libra Industries continues to invest to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability.

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.
