Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING A PRODUCTION OPERATION USING PRINTED INFORMATION ON A COMPONENT TAPE
(FR) METHODE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE COMMANDER UN PROCESSUS DE PRODUCTION A L'AIDE D'UNE INFORMATION IMPRIMEE SUR UN COMPOSANT
Abstract:
(EN) A production operation is controlled by electronically scanning and reading printed information at intervals along a component tape. The printed information is continuously scanned and read from the carrier tape portion or the cover tape portion of the component tape as components are removed from the component tape during a production operation. In a production facility, the data from many component tapes is transmitted simultaneously to a production control system where all data is processed. The processed data is used to automatically control a production operation by using the printed information to control resources of the production operation, resources including component inventory, equipment, and facilities. Applications controlled by the printed component tape information include automatic production initial set-up verification, automatic production feed change set-up verification, feeder performance verification, material monitoring including automatic backflushing and stock check/work-in-process cycle counting, and production system control.
(FR) Il est possible, dans le cadre de cette invention, de commander un processus de production par analyse et lecture électroniques d'une information imprimée à intervalles le long d'une bande. L'information imprimée est analysée et lue sans interruption sur la partie de la bande porteuse ou la partie de couverture de la bande au fur et à mesure que les composants sont extraits de la bande lors du processus de production. Dans une installation de production, les données de plusieurs bandes sont transmises simultanément à un système de commande de production dans lequel elles sont toutes traitées. On utilise ces données traitées pour commander automatiquement le processus de production par le biais de l'information imprimée afin d'agir sur les ressources du processus de production, au nombre desquelles figurent l'inventaire des composants, l'équipement et les installations. Parmi les applications commandées par le biais de l'information imprimée figurent la vérification de mise au point initiale de production automatique, la vérification de mise au point de modification d'alimentation de la production automatique, la vérification des capacités de fonctionnement du dispositif d'alimentation, la surveillance du matériau, y compris le listage rétroactif et la vérification du stock/comptage du cycle du travail en cours, et la commande du système de production.
