Aegis Software, a provider of Manufacturing Execution Software (MES), announced the unveiling of their quality management capabilities that complement the company‘s FactoryLogix existing Incoming & In-Process quality assurance capabilities, to now deliver Administrative Quality Management capabilities, to drive a culture of continuous process and improvement. The company showcased this capability, as well as, participated in the live demonstration of the IPC CFX factory data exchange standard.
The company’s FactoryLogix platform has long provided manufacturers the best-in-class method for managing and reporting upon quality, repair, test, diagnostics and incoming materials inspection. At Apex 2018, this in-process quality management solution extended to enterprise-wide Administrative Quality, enabling manufacturers to take total control of the business processes that occur as result of non-conformances on the factory floor. A total solution covering Corrective Action and Preventive Action (CAPA), Material Review Board (MRB), and Failure Reporting, Analysis, and Corrective Action System (FRACAS) is a complement to the shop-floor nonconformance and incoming inspection quality components already inherent in FactoryLogix. Together, they comprise the most complete single-platform quality management solution available to electronics manufacturers to increase quality outcomes at a lower cost, ensure regulatory and compliance requirements are met and improve customer satisfaction.
“Manufacturers on the FactoryLogix platform can now detect and correct quality problems at the loading docks and through the process itself, but also manage and trace the business processes that arise from those problems. They can now fully automate continuous improvement and preventive actions,” stated Jason Spera, CEO. “This ‘administrative quality’ capability brings uniformity and enforcement to the actions that must be taken to ensure mistakes are never repeated and processes actually improve over time. Further, this large system greatly simplifies and improves outcomes in quality audits, ISO compliance, and customer satisfaction and relationship management.”
Also at the show, the company participated in the historic live demonstration of the IPC CFX factory data exchange standard that enabled visitors to monitor machines and devices in real-time across more than 15 different vendors at the show—on their own mobile devices—simply by scanning a QR code when entering the show floor. The company‘s platform was connected to the shop-floor CFX network, which showed the power of this free, open and true IoT standard for the industry, and the already widespread incorporation of it within devices and machines in the industry.
The holistic and modular platform delivers leading-edge technology with easily configurable modules to support and execute a discrete manufacturer’s strategy towards Industry 4.0. FactoryLogix manages the entire manufacturing lifecycle: from product launch to material logistics, through manufacturing execution, to powerful analytics and real-time dashboards. This end-to-end platform is helping companies accelerate product introductions, streamline processes, improve quality and traceability, reduce costs and gain greater visibility for competitive advantage and profitability.
