  • Publication number: 20210150446
    Abstract: A board production management device configured to manage a board production line including an initial notification section configured to issue notification information including at least one of a contents of an error cause or a contents of countermeasures when the error cause that requires countermeasures occurs at the board production line; and an escalation notification section configured to issue the notification information after escalating in a case in which the error cause is not resolved after a specified time has elapsed since the error cause occurred. Accordingly, because when the specified time has elapsed, a notification is issued as escalating the notifyee or escalating the contents of countermeasures to resolve error causes more effectively, and compared to conventional technology in which only re-notification of the occurrence of the error cause is performed, notification is performed more efficiently, enabling an error cause that requires countermeasures to be resolved more quickly.
