IPC-HERMES Introduction: "Smart Manufacturing Begins at the Machines" - Brought to you by the IPC EMS Management Council

IPC-HERMES Introduction: "Smart Manufacturing Begins at the Machines" - Brought to you by the IPC EMS Management Council

Date
Sep 15, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:00pm EDT

As the Smart replacement for the long-successful IPC-SMEMA standard, the IPC-HERMES standard directly addresses business-critical line automation needs, whilst retaining the freedom to select the ideal equipment from any chosen vendor. Hermes provides machine-to-machine (M2M) communication that allows machines to consistently transfer a physical PCB together with the PCB’s related Digital Twin. With an emphasis on flexibility to produce any quantity, of any product, at any time, Hermes features fully automated changeover and flow-control in adaptive multi / mixed production lines, without the need for specialist hardware or systems at each machine.

With connectivity between lines enhanced with the use of IPC-CFX (Connected Factory Exchange), Hermes and CFX machine-native support work seamlessly together to make any production line into the most agile, productive, quality-driven Smart line, featuring full automation of product flow, dynamic machine setup, as well as closed-loop and machine learning.

In this presentation, we look at the key business features and benefits of The IPC Hermes Standard, as well as seeing how Hermes works alongside CFX, vastly reducing integration and communication costs and risk.

Contracting with the Customer

Contracting with the Customer

Date
Nov 1, 2021 | 6:30 - 8:30pm EDT

Every Monday and Wednesday 11/1/2021-11/17/2021

Without a doubt, negotiating with OEMs and other customers is one of the biggest challenges facing the electronic manufacturing services (“EMS”) manager/executive. What needs to be covered in the contract? How should risk be allocated and balanced with pricing? Are there proper allocations of risk and limitations of liability for warranty, intellectual property, sourcing, and product content provisions? Is our company properly protected? What terms represent industry standards in allocation of risk and responsibility? What should we do if there is a dispute? What are current best practices? This unique program addresses the specific issues EMS companies face while contracting with a customer. This course allows participants to experience major contractual aspects of dealing with a theoretical customer at an EMS company, beginning with receipt of a non-disclosure agreement, and continuing through review of a bid package or scope of work, the negotiation and execution of a manufacturing services agreement, receipt of a bid package or scope of work, and a dispute with the customer. The Instructors are EMS subject matter experts with 40+ years of experience providing legal services to EMS companies worldwide, including drafting and negotiating customer and supply chain related agreements, assisting in the acquisition and divestiture of facilities, and advising on compliance, human resources, and dispute resolution, including representations in mediations, arbitrations, and litigation.
