The exhibition of the latest generation FactoryLogix Manufacturing Execution Software (MES) has been announced by Aegis Software to take place at IPC APEX EXPO 2017, in San Diego, 14th-16th February.
Aegis will demonstrate how FactoryLogix is helping customers drive operational efficiency with a comprehensive solution to materials management. Aegis will also discuss how the company is supporting the IPC Connected Factory Initiative to develop a non-proprietary machine data interface standard that will enable Industry 4.0 benefits for our industry.
For over 17 years, Aegis has worked alongside customers to leverage manufacturing data, driving measureable improvements in manufacturing speed, control, and visibility. The latest release of FactoryLogix to be displayed this year’s APEX EXPO incorporates an expanded Logistics module that facilitates incoming quality control, warehouse and dispatch control, resource scheduling and planning, and material tracking for complete visibility of the state of the materials within the factory in real time.
Aegis will discuss its role in the worldwide race to achieve the benefits of Industry 4.0. While the concept of Industry 4.0 has gained much attention in recent years, the technical approaches to achieving it have been solely proprietary and limited in nature.
Now, with the establishment of the IPC’s Connected Factory Initiative, over 30 of the leading manufacturers, machine, device, sensor, and software companies are working together to develop a machine data interface standard known as Connected Factory Exchange (CFX).
Jason Spera, Chief Executive Officer of Aegis and Co-Chair of the IPC CFX committee said: “As the manufacturing industry turns its attention to unlocking the power of data through technologies related to Industry 4.0, Aegis is proud to support the IPC in developing a free and open data standard. Aegis’ exhibition at APEX this year will reflect the industry’s global shift of attention to digitisation of the factory, and what manufacturers can accomplish through leveraging data connectivity.”
