Do you have a solution to reduce the impact of Internal Failures and collect the repair data needed to prevent failures from reoccurring?

 
   

SFM

ReX is an intelligent repair solution that reduces the time it takes to repair a faulty printed circuit board, while capturing the data needed to improve root cause analysis.

Shop Floor Repair (ReX) is an advanced graphical and paperless repair solution for the electronics printed circuit board (PCB) production process that reduces the time and cost associated with troubleshooting and repairing a faulty PCB on the shop floor. ReX is a shop floor wide repair solution that can support multiple process steps on the shop floor including incircuit test, functional test, visual inspection and field return repair. ReX provides on-line test and repair history so operators can see what actions have been previously performed on a PCB.

ReX significantly reduces the time it takes semi or non-skilled operators to troubleshoot and repair a faulty PCB with several productivity tools that reduce the time it takes to find shorts, parts, device pins and traces on a board. The ReX productivity tools are designed to reduce the time it takes to inspect, troubleshoot and repair a faulty ReX Closed LoopPCB.

ReX supports paperless repair, which removes the need to print out a paper failure ticket and attach it to a faulty board. Using paper failure tickets is manually intense and error prone, losing a repair ticket or attaching a ticket to the wrong board could result in retests or a fault board being shipped.

ReX works seamlessly with all other Derby applications. Upon completion of each ReX repair, the failure cause identified and repair action taken by the operator is automatically sent to the Derby Shop Floor Database (SFDB) so it can be combined with test data collected.  Shop Floor Quality (SFQ) uses ReX data to improve root cause analysis by correlating failures to repair causes and to provide the data needed to prevent failure reoccurring. Shop Floor Monitor (SFM) can display ReX repair cause and action data in real-time on "live" dashboards on the shop floor so operators can quickly determine the cause for failures.

 
   

Key Features

  • Active Board Graphics — Simply scan in the board serial number and ReX will display the board graphics and the failure ticket in a single display. Even if the operator is not familiar with the board they can quickly find the faulty device or potential short, without the need for paper documents (i.e. schematic, parts locator or material list).

  • Built-In Productivity ToolsIntuitive point-and-click navigation enables non-expert users to quickly find small parts, potential shorts, circuit traces and information on parts without the need for paper document, which significantly reduces the time it takes to troubleshoot and repair a faulty PCB.

  • Paperless RepairNo need to stick failure tickets on the board, which invariable fall off! ReX will display the failure information from the test electronically, which removes the need for paper and potential retests if the paper ticket is lost.

  • Repair Data CollectionDrop down menus with local language support are used to make it easy for operators to log the reason for the failure and the action taken. Not only does this feature remove the need for manual data collection it enables test defects data to be combined with the cause for failure, which improve root cause analysis and the ability to prevent problems from reoccurring.

  • Intuitive Graphical Interface — The ReX point-and-click interface was specifically designed to make it easy for semi or non-skilled operators to troubleshoot a faulty PCB. Operators can be up and running on ReX in minutes! Whether your PCBs are built internally, externally, locally or internationally ReX can be used to reduce the time it takes and the cost to get your products to the market.

  • Shop Floor Wide SupportBecause PCB failures can happen at several points on the shop floor ReX has the ability to support visual inspection at the front of the line, and incircuit test and functional test at the back-end enabling the complete test and repair history to be captured.

  • Closed Loop Quality ManagementReX closes the quality management control loop between production, test and repair by providing the feedback needed for continuous improvement in the electronics manufacturing process.
