Aegis Software’s updates to FactoryLogix
Aegis Software, a global provider of manufacturing operations management software, announces new capabilities in their latest FactoryLogix 2022.1 and 2022.2 releases. With FactoryLogix 2022.1 and 2022.2, Aegis offers advanced capabilities to eliminate redundancies, streamline error-prone processes, promote agility, increase quality, and reduce waste.
FactoryLogix 2022.1 and 2022.2 deliver enhancements across the entire platform. Below are just a small sample of the industry-leading features and benefits offered in this new release:
Smart, dynamic visualization – Whether during incoming inspection or on the factory floor, manufacturers can power up their visual work instructions with smart pictures that dynamically change depending on the context of what is being inspected or worked. Similar to Aegis’ recently introduced smart text capability, end-users now have the power to create one template and use it in an infinite number of scenarios instead of leveraging static/generic images or single-use templates. Companies benefit by eliminating redundant document authoring work, streamlining processes, supporting single-piece flow production, and, ultimately, overall improved quality.
Fractional tracking during production – Aegis has expanded the ability to track units of measurement (volume, length, etc.) beyond the unit level during the production process. Now manufacturers have expanded support for even more process types and product types when leveraging the FactoryLogix platform.
Cross-order process synchronization – With this latest capability, manufacturers can now establish a common assembly operation to occur simultaneously across different assembly lines and different products. They can optimally balance approaches, equipment, materials, and resources based upon similar operations common among products regardless of the assembly line, further elevating quality, reducing waste, and streamlining resources.
Nonconformance Integration & Threshold Approval Support - FactoryLogix now supports cost-related parameters and threshold approval workflows when assessing the path of action for a nonconformance. In addition to accelerating the approval process, it also enables the ability to see those problems occurring most frequently and those imposing the greatest cost.
BOM compare to an externally sourced BOM – FactoryLogix has always supported BOM to BOM comparisons, but now manufacturers can compare a CAD/CAM BOM to an externally resident BOM (e.g., ERP) and accelerate the BOM compare process, saving time and money. Users can quickly identify discrepancies between the two, eliminating data inconsistencies and ensuring they have enough material to complete the job on time and within budget.
FactoryLogix is a holistic and modular platform that 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 and quality management to powerful analytics and real-time dashboards. This end-to-end platform helps companies accelerate product introductions, streamline processes, improve quality and traceability, reduce costs, and gain greater visibility for competitive advantage and profitability.
