Aegis Software to unveil quality-management system at APEX 2018

Feb. 23, 2018

Horsham, PA. Aegis Software, a global provider of manufacturing execution software (MES), has announced the unveiling of its new quality-management capabilities that complement its FactoryLogix existing incoming- and in-process quality-assurance capabilities to now deliver administrative quality management capabilities to drive a culture of continuous process improvement. Aegis will be showcasing this new capability as well as participating in a live demonstration of the IPC CFX factory data-exchange standard at Apex 2018 February 27 to March 1 in San Diego.

The Aegis FactoryLogix platform has long provided manufacturers with a method for managing and reporting upon quality, repair, test, diagnostics, and incoming materials inspection. At APEX 2018, this in-process quality-management solution will extend 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 a 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 of Aegis Software. “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 APEX 2018, Aegis will participate in the historic live demonstration of the IPC CFX factory data-exchange standard that will enable 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. FactoryLogix will be connected to the shop-floor CFX network as part of this demonstration, showing 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.

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, to powerful analytics and real-time dashboards.
