WORKS Planning

Based on feedback from the SMT Smart Network and the experience we have collected from customers all over the world, ASMPT's experts have identified eight central workflows in the SMT factory: four line workflows (planning, virtual production, process optimization, production), and four factory workflows (material management, preparation, factory monitoring, factory integration). The importance of each of these workflows varies by manufacturer and product type. The most successful producers in their respective fields have been very good at organizing their workflows. Without smart planning, control and monitoring tools, employees tend to lose track and the ability to work quickly, efficiently and error-free. To prove this point, errors and extra work occur most frequently where the flow of information gets backed up or interrupted – for example, because tools and systems are not properly linked and are unable to communicate with each other in a process-oriented manner.


You want to automate your planning process as much as possible while keeping it highly flexible. WORKS accomplishes precisely that, thus ensuring on-time deliveries and happy customers. Fully networked planning tools reflect capacities, restrictions and even short-term interruptions seamlessly, thus increasing the quality and reliability of your planning – all while maintaining contact with your company’s ERP system and allowing you to optimize your planning and setup changeover costs.


  • Maximize your capacity utilization and meet deadlines.
  • Maximize your line utilization by scheduling your production based on realistic capacities and restrictions.

In the planning process, you translate your orders with information about products, quantities and deadlines into concrete job sequences and delivery times based on information from the ERP system or other IT systems – quickly and preferably automatically. To do this, you must know your material inventory as well as your line capacities and restrictions in minute detail. You must also be able to quickly update your plans when rush jobs or equipment failures must be accommodated, and to communicate these changes electronically.

This planning process is becoming increasingly complex as the number of products and customers increases, lead times become shorter, and lot sizes smaller.

Key features:

  • Deadline-oriented planning for SMT production
  • Distribution of product orders across all available lines
  • Consideration of time spent on setup, maintenance, changeover, etc.
  • Automated setup optimization for all lines


  • Easy and automated production scheduling
  • Optimized setup configurations for maximum performance
