Aegis Software, a provider of Manufacturing Execution Software (MES), announced the showcase of the latest release of their true Industry 4.0, digitalized MES software, FactoryLogix, at the SMT Hybrid Packaging tradeshow in Nuremberg, Germany. The company will also be a key participant in the show-wide, live, IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) IoT demo.
The achievement of Industry 4.0 digital factory operation requires three critical elements, all of which the company will have at the show. The first is the introduction of the new IoT-based industry standard for the live and secure exchange of data between machines and processes, IPC’s CFX. In its European debut at the show, data will be gathered live from multiple machines and vendors across the entire show-floor, and made available to every show visitor simply by looking at straighforward metrics and analytic reports delivered to their mobile phones.
The second critical element for the achievement of Industry 4.0 is to have MES software that is specifically designed for Industry 4.0 and IoT technology. The company’s FactoryLogix software is unique in this respect, the latest release of which features many new and improved functions, including the integration of Administrative Quality Management, which combines CAPA (Corrective And Preventive Action) and FRACAS (Failure Reporting, Analysis, and Corrective Action System). The real value of Administrative Quality Management is that unlike in-process quality tools that ensure that every product is shipped without defects, administrative quality actually automates corrections and continuous improvement procedures such that defects don’t occur in the first place. Together with the existing automated symptom and defect data collection and reporting capabilities, FactoryLogix provides a unique and complete world-class quality solution.
The third critical element for Industry 4.0 is the understanding of the business case and operational goals that utilize the latest technology to its fullest extent. Experts in Industry 4.0 for business and strategy will be available for one-on-one discussions at the company’s booth.
