Mr. Xuan Liang: Extraordinary Inventor Driving the Development in the Field of Business and Technology

Mr. Xuan Liang is an extraordinary professional in the fields of business and technology development. His achievements include multiple revolutionary inventions and technology developments.

Due to his extraordinary expertise, Mr. Liang provided the world two revolutionary inventions:

–  Mr. Liang invented an automatic LCD monitor production control system which witnessed a through output of 10 million LCD monitors per year–  Mr. Liang invented the configure-to-order based MES

Due to his work, Mr. Liang was awarded the following patent:

CN1696945 Production information control system and methodology CN1696945 Production information control system and methodology; CN CN1696945 · Issued Nov 6, 2005CN CN1696945 · Issued Nov 6, 2005.

Specifically, this invention enables designs, a practical way, to collect production data from massive production lines in order to use the data for quality control and production monitoring.

As the electronics manufacturing industry is booming, more and more electronics companies are competing or collaborating with world-class electronics companies. They have found that traditional shop floor management methods can’t meet the demands of flexible manufacturing, rapid response, and accurate traceability. As the market shifts from large-scale manufacturing to small-volume but diverse manufacturing models, it is imperative to invent a new Configure-to-Order (CTO) Manufacturing Execution System (MES) that can support the shop floor to accept a large number of orders with very different configurations and be able to produce the orders without quality problems and ship them on time.

Mr. Liang has provided the world an explanation of how the Configure-to-Order MES is designed and implemented in an company’s focusing on computer OEM manufacturing. The main work of his work includes:

1. An in-depth definition of the requirements and scope of the CTO MES.2. The system structure, model and technical implementation methods.3. How to develop the core functions of the MES system, including: system control (System Console), process data collection & control interface (Process Control Interface), work-in-progress management (WIP Management) and related business logic.4. Benefits after the implementation of this CTO MES.

Benefits of Mr. Liang’s Technological/Business Development Contributions:

With the help of Mr. Liang’s invention, the CTO MES was implemented in four business units accounting for $500 million in annual sales.  Further, with the implementation of CTO MES, a manufacturing department can shift production of different products from a maximum of 2 times per shift to a maximum of 20 times per shift. This kind of manufacturing flexibility helped the company create an entirely new production model that protected its competitive advantages and enable them to become a world-renowned, successful OEM player.

With the implementation of configure-to-order based MES, business units can automatically receive thousands of orders from the customer’s systems that receive orders from their websites without human intervention, then automatically push the work orders to the shop floor with the clear instructions of assembly and testing, the shop floor workers are able to prepare the different manufacturing materials in the right order, and shift from one batch of low-volume products to another batch with even less quantity. At the end of production, product package labels can be automatically printed and stored in the correct order. At the same time, all the key data of the manufacturing process is sent back to the ERP, so that it can share the manufacturing information with the company’s customers.

Further Benefits, Specific to the customer of the LCD monitor production control system: 

Several months after the LCD monitor control system went live and stabilized, the company began to enjoy the benefits that the system brings through automation.

Two years after the system implementation, the company has improved its burn-in room utilization rate from 70% to 88%. The average test cycle time of the four test stations was reduced from 4 minutes to 2 minutes. The company reached its peak production throughput of 40,000 LCD monitors per day from 20,000. The business unit has achieved their goal of doubling their revenue from $650M to $1.3B by improving their efficiency through automation and better process control. The company is successfully maintaining their competitive advantages as the world’s most efficient LCD monitor manufacturer.
