The latest version of the Manufacturing Execution Software (MES), FactoryLogix R3, from Aegis Software, was showcased at the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Mexico show in Tijuana on 8th June. The foundations of this software release is based on the principles of Industry 4.0 and facilitates digital transformation to a Smart Factory environment.
Industry 4.0, or the Smart Factory approach, refers to employing the benefits of data exchange and automation, resulting in greater speed, control and visibility for manufacturers. FactoryLogix provides the required real time digital visibility of the state of the factory so that manufacturers can leverage smart data to optimise materials and resources to drive meaningful results.
FactoryLogix integrates with any existing ERP or MRP system, thereby reducing integration costs typically needed for expensive programming, and ensuring seamless information flow throughout the enterprise. Aegis also introduced mobile apps that enable engineering, plant operations and production personnel to have instant access to information regardless of their location. This mobility capability promotes faster decision making to improve plant up-time and production.
