BRIGHTERWAVE – Shortening and improving the NPI process

 

Brighterwave develops and sells lasers and laser projection solutions to augmented reality, automotive and life science applications. For display applications (picture 1) RGB lasers are needed, whereas as in life science applications (picture 2) Brighterwave’s proprietary laser technology allows the fabrication of any visible wavelength like 561nm.

Brighterwave use case consists of studying an optimised assembly process of optoelectronic multi-component modules supporting a medium-volume production of its laser-based products and maintaining maximum quality and zero-defects in the production process.

These objectives will be achieved by linking the currently disjointed multi-stage manufacturing process through its data aggregation. The received data will be used for the prediction and early detection of defects which currently occur in the final stage. This quality inspection methodology at the shopfloor level will speed up reactions thus preventing defects from happening and therefore, it will increase the production yield. Lastly, the use of a Decision Support System, will support the reuse-requalification of the parts, thus reducing also the production costs significantly.
