Are you familiar with this situation? Your SMT line reliably churns out one product after another, but suddenly something happens that sends your entire schedule down the drain.
For example, one of the components suddenly comes from another supplier and looks completely different. Or a component of a new product won't arrive until the last minute. You must glue a component and don’t want to change your entire setup. Or you must quickly increase your line capacity for the next job.
You probably have to deal with challenges of this type every day in your SMT production.
