CUSTOMER COMMENTS

A Unisoft customer is Willie Anderson, Manufacturing Engineering Manager at Keytech Electronics Systems. Keytech is a electronic contract manufacturer (EMS) and a Unisoft customer since 2005. They use the Unisoft software to program their Assembly, AOI inspection, Test and Selective Soldering equipment. Keytech also uses the Unisoft software to create process assembly documents, do first article inspection, general inspection, cost reports, technician debug, repair, rework, etc. Here are some of Willie's comments in 2012:

"We had a board meeting last night and one of the topics on the agenda was the Assembly procedures created with the software. We have over the last quarter rolled out the use of the Unisoft Output for creating our build pack assembly documents and the feedback from all departments has been a sound endorsement of the product. Our quality dept (who use the software for FAI) have stated "Since the introduction of the new paperwork we have noticed a marked improvement on first time pass rates and build quality".

"The operators like the fact that they no longer need to search the board for references due to the colour coding of the parts and the quality of the information provided. Finally the production manager has noticed on products where we are using the new paperwork that through-put has increased due to less quality related stoppages."

NETLIST window and blinking of all pins on the selected net

Easier drill down to component pins, trace runs and schematic.  Display NETLISTS quickly using the "NET INFORMATION" window that displays the NET NAME of the selected component and pin and all the other pins on the net. The trace run of the selected net is highlighted and all pins on the net blink. If the schematic view is displayed then the net chosen is shown. The user can then select any one of the other pins on the net in the NET INFORMATION box. The result is the NET INFORMATION window will update to the new selected pin and the selected trace highlighted will update also. If the schematic view is displayed then that view will refresh too.

Do you have special problems - For example: You do not have the native CAD files for your PC Board. You only have the Gerber Files and a BOM (Bill Of Materials).  Our software can do it for you, it takes your gerber files and BOM and creates the exact Reference Designators, X/Y, and Part Number data the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP needs.    Of course the software also imports virtually all standard native CAD file types too!

A possible next step in your evaluation is an informal online demo. We can do the demo within minutes of you contacting usWe simply invite you via email to a webpage where you view our PC live, so there is no firewall or other security issues for you to deal with.  To do the demo now or schedule one call 203-913-0782 or email info7@unisoft-cim.com

Assembly and Process Sheets

The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create matching assembly lists and assembly drawing sheets for each step in the assembly process.  Part numbers are automatically assigned to the assembly step you wish (for example: Step 1 for Hand Inserts, Step 2 Chip Shooter components, etc).  The part numbers are then automatically uniquely colored.  If needed, overlay annotation notes can be added to each step.  Next for each step matching assembly lists and assembly drawings are created.  These drawings can either be printed or save to a file (PDF Adobe, etc.) or displayed on the screen.

Kitting Labels

The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create Kitting Labels for fast and accurate electronic component kitting.  Quickly select the component part numbers for which you wish kitting labels created.  Each label contains the part number, unique part number color, step number, p/n description, reference designator, etc.  Fast and easy electronic kitting labels for kitting work orders.

First Article Inspection

Generally First Article Inspection is done on the first PC Boards assembled. When the assembly inspection is satisfactory at that point the PC Board can be built reliably in quantity.

The Unisoft software allows you to BLINK all the components in each part number. The person doing the first article inspection would check that each of those components are correctly  installed.  If all where correct then they would click the DRAW button to color those components to indicate they are correct. A check mark is placed next to the part number indicating it has been completed. The inspector would continue this process for each part number until all part numbers are colored at which point that would indicate the PC Board was assembled correctly. At that point the PC Board can be built in quantity.

Customer comments

"I just want to say thanks for developing a software that allows technicians to troubleshoot pcb boards in a much easier and faster way. I definitely like the split screen option that allows you to view the board on one side and schematic on the other side. Since I have use this software, I throw away old schematics. Every time I launch the software, it makes me smile. A smile that is full of confidence knowing no matter how difficult a pcb board might be, by using the software I'm up for the challenge."

We have used the Unisoft software since 1993 and it works great! ... Just a note to say I am using the free Unisoft PC Board CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software extensively for a task I am working on. I think the difficulty of an alternate method would greatly increase the time to completion. In addition to our licensed copies of the Unisoft software we have over 50 users of the Unisoft free VIEWER software at this Vermont plant.  Unisoft has come to bat quickly anytime we have needed support.

The online schematic feature in ProntoVIEW-MARKUP is super. We no longer need to have the schematic sheets on our desks. This is truly a great feature.
       Jay Aglei - SSI Inc.

Evaluation comments:
We just completed a board build using the file you converted for me.  We actually used the software "live" (versus making hard-copy drawings) since the board had so many item numbers and it worked great.  I would go so far as to say it would have been almost impossible without it.

So far this is awesome.  Thanks for the quick turnaround...  I'm sure I'll spend the day going through the tutorial and instructions.  But I'm already impressed.  It would have taken me untold hours to get to the point where I had something usable using manual techniques.  Using our "live" board makes a great demo!

Add Graphic Annotations

wpe2E.gif (4892 bytes)You can add a graphic annotation just as easily as adding a text annotation.  Just draw the rectangle, and specify where the graphic come from, either a disk file or the Windows clipboard.  You can control boarder and callout line colors just like text annotations, plus you can stretch you graphic any way you like.

COMMENTS

"Thanks you for your time and working with me. The software is very valuable. Its been great."
        Mike Knox - Hewlett-Packard, California

"I just want to say thanks for developing a software that allows technicians to troubleshoot pcb boards in a much easier and faster way. I definitely like the split screen option that allows you to view the board on one side and schematic on the other side. Since I have use this software, I throw away old schematics. Every time I launch the software, it makes me smile. A smile that is full of confidence knowing no matter how difficult a pcb board might be, by using the software I'm up for the challenge."

       Best Regards
       Josiah Mitchell

About Josiah: Josiah (Joe) Mitchell sent the comments above in April of 2011. Joe is from Hunter Engineering Company ( http://www.hunter.com ) out of Raymond, MS . They have a site license for the Unisoft software at their plant. They are a relatively new customer purchasing the software in April of 2010. Hunter makes automobile alignment systems, lift rack, wheel balancers, etc. and they use the Unisoft software throughout their plant.

"Our UniSOFT configuration has been instrumental in reducing engineering development costs. Maintaining an aggressive product development schedule would be impossible without the UniSOFT tools." 
        Mike Bartnick - Delco Electronics

"I was first introduced to the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software several years ago by the Hewlett-Packard group in Puerto Rico. We use it every day here for practically every operation on the production floor."
       R.S. - Hewlett-Packard, California

The online schematic feature in ProntoVIEW-MARKUP is super. We no longer need to have the schematic sheets on our desks. This is truly a great feature.
       Jay Aglei - SSI Inc.

We appreciate everything your company has done for us, you have definitely made us more competitive.
        Jay Patel

It's really hard to believe the amount of features packed into this software for the price. Throughout our evaluation process we were really trying to figure out what was missing but we couldn't find anything. As I mentioned earlier we will be placing the purchase order early next week for the full ProntoVIEW-MARKUP package with all the CAD importers.
       R.A.

Just for your information, I've sent your coordinates and a sample file to one fellow worker in MCMS Penang (Malaysia) in order for him to evaluate especially that amazing feature of ProntoVIEW-MARKUP that consists in re-creating the schematics from the nodes.
        Yves de Ryckel - Managing Director MCMS, Belgium

Thousand of thanks! ProntoVIEW-MARKUP working like crazy. I can not believe I now have this powerful tool . You are great.
        Cristian Lungu - Solectron

The software is now in use on our shop floor, and is proving to be very useful indeed.

Just thought I'd let you know that the feedback I am getting from the test and repair technicians on our production floor is extremely positive, now that they are using the CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software every day....and wonder how they survived without it ! They find all the features really good and your software has dramatically reduced the time taken to locate components and fix faults etc. The investment has paid for itself already. We have not yet really used the annotation features of the software but I'm hoping to get this off the ground in the near future.

Keep up the good work.
        Gerry I.  -  Benchmark Electronics Europe

Update from Gerry:
I thought you might like to know that I just recently started using the annotation and embedded graphic features of the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software, and we are very impressed with it. 

I look forward to hearing from you. 

Regards and thanks,
        Gerry I.  -  Benchmark Electronics Europe

I have presented the software to a number of my techs. They really like it.
One of the primary reasons I wanted to try your software was the versatility
of using either Pads or Mentor files. The ease of use has been so great
that even our engineers have expressed an interest.
        DB - General Electric

Thanks for the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software program. It is really good...
        Leonid - Israel

Finally, I found some time to use your software. It's a very good product. ...ProntoVIEW-MARKUP is the best product we have found in our evaluation.
        RD - Celestica

We are beginning to see the benefits of using the software and it has been a great aid to our inspection people.
       
Willie Anderson - Keytech Systems, Scotland

...ProntoVIEW-MARKUP is a splendid product.
        K.O. - Takaya Corp. (Japan)

"Several years ago we purchased ProntoTEST-FIXTURE software for our Genrad ATE. Later we ordered ProntoTEST-FIXTURE for our Hewlett Packard test equipment with good results. Now we have ProntoPLACE for our two Mydata / Mycronic SMT component placement machines and use ProntoVIEW-MARKUP for providing paper or paperless process documentation for our assembly and repair operations. We are extremely happy with the way the Unisoft OneFACTORY suite has worked for us." 
        Tony Marino - Plant Manager, Bristol Babcock 

We are extremely happy with ProntoVIEW-MARKUP paperless process documentation and repair software. We have also purchased ProntoPLACE for our Universal assembly equipment.
        A. Manual. - Keithly Instruments

I've been having a good look at this software and I'm impressed with all the
different types of data it can import, not only with PADS and Mentor
Graphics, but also HPGL and DXF files that we also use. Also it can be
quite handy for the other formats such as Orcad and Allegro as we sometimes
get these files sent to us from other customers. It read in our board designs without problems.

I am using your shareware version of ProntoVIEW-MARKUP and I wonder how I buy your excellent program?
What is the price?
        Ulf K. - Ericsson Microwave Systems AB, Sweden

Very powerful aid tool.
        S.V.  -  Kortex Europe

Several people in our company have looked at the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software, and we are definitely interested in buying it, it looks like it will do just what we need!
     JS - European Electronics

We have used the Unisoft software since 1993 and it works great!... Just a note to say I am using the free Unisoft PC Board CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software extensively for a task I am working on. I think the difficulty of an alternate method would greatly increase the time to completion. In addition to our licensed copies of the Unisoft software we have over 50 users of the Unisoft free CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software at this Vermont plant.  Unisoft has come to bat quickly anytime we have needed support.
    John Harrington - BF Goodrich Aerospace

Being able to highlight a single or multiple traces and then to follow a signal or to find the potential location of shorted traces is a tremendous feature of the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software, we use it every day.
        Frank Benton - Europe
