SCI Systems Inc., a world leader in electronic contract manufacturing, has placed a $3.8 million order for a combined software and support services package from Tecnomatix and Fuji Machine Manufacturing Company Ltd.

Tecnomatix is providing its Unicam software for assembly planning, production monitoring, documentation and for interfacing with non-Fuji PCB assembly equipment. Also included in the package is a jointly-developed brand of the Unicam software, called Fujicam, that allows engineers to program, optimise and monitor Fuji assembly machines directly from the engineering application.

SCI selected Tecnomatix and Fuji after a 12-month evaluation of the Unicam and Fujicam software at three SCI facilities. SCI has been using the software to program the Fuji machines, and create visual assembly aids from a number of PCB design systems.

The Tecnomatix/Fuji solution has already shortened new product introduction schedules, reduced cycle times for board assembly, and provided faster implementation of engineering changes and automation of process documentation for SCI.
