With the release of IPC-2591, Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) the electronic industry now has an industry standard it can use to quickly and easily implement Industry 4.0 and the IoT in their manufacturing operations. This is the first standard to provide a true “plug and play” IoT communication environment throughout manufacturing, where all equipment, manufacturing processes and transactional stations can communicate with each other without the need for the development and use of specialized software.
As the standard continues to generate interest from the electronics manufacturing supply chain, companies are asking IPC about CFX implementation roadmaps for equipment and manufacturing lines, software providers, manufacturers. To accommodate the request IPC is providing the supporters of IPC-CFX to complete the IPC-CFX Implementation Roadmap Form and submit the form to IPCCFX@ipc.org.
IPC will post all submitted CFX roadmaps to www.ipc-cfx.org and communicate the availability of these roadmaps to industry.
IPC will continue to recognize companies with a supporter page on our website and at various events throughout the year. If you wish to become a supporter of IPC-CFX you can still be a supporter by completing the online supporter form. IPC would encourage you to take the next step and build your companies roadmap and submit it to us once you have joined as a supporter.
