Electronic boards production automation with KiCAD scripts

Designing electronics is always fun, the later mass production organisation is boring and routine work, and if you do not do it properly it can easily turn into a nightmare. The different machines used in production like printers, pick and place machines, ovens, AOI, testers all run different software, different libraries, different component naming concepts. So to prepare from your KiCad project all programs to run on these machines is really time consuming. Later on the machine jobs changeovers there are also source of machine operator errors. We are dealing with electronic production for more than 30 years and we are constantly improving our process to avoid stupid mistakes and make the different machine programming easy and predictable process. KiCad scripting is nice tool to automate all this boring stuff and I will share our experience with you.
