Reading time ( words)

Aegis Software has been cited as a Notable Vendor in the Gartner report, Aerospace and Defense Context: "Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems", and in the Industrial and High-Tech/Electronics Manufacturing Context: "Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems" report.

In the Aerospace & Defense Context Report, Gartner identifies Aegis Software as one of four notable vendors and notes that "The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is, from a manufacturing perspective, unlike any other vertical. The end products of A&D resemble automotive, aircraft, watercraft, weaponry and others, and can involve process and discrete manufacturing styles in the production of these end products. What these manufacturers all have in common, regardless of manufacturing style or end product, is the need to adhere to key design, quality, traceability and compliance requirements. These requirements are enforced up and down the A&D supply chain, from preproduction to program ramp-up and sustainment (maintenance repair and overhaul)."

"We are very pleased to be identified as a notable vendor by Gartner, and consider this inclusion as a reaffirmation of our experience and ability to deliver the manufacturing community innovative, leading-edge technology that consistently generates benefits for our customers," stated Jason Spera, CEO of Aegis Software.

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. Built upon a native IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) engine, with a standards-based machine and asset connectivity layer, this end-to-end platform helps manufacturers accelerate product introductions, streamline processes, improve quality and traceability, reduce costs and gain greater visibility for competitive advantage.

In the Industrial and High-Tech/Electronics Manufacturing Context report, Gartner states that "The majority of MES vendors serve the discrete industrial marketplace. Even in that space, there are individual specialties that require unique capabilities and, in turn, vendors that support those unique capabilities. Specializations in the industrial and high-tech/electronics world include semiconductor manufacturing capability, plastic injection molding, management and control of production tooling, box build, electronic work instruction management, and technology-related lean manufacturing."

"Twenty years ago, Aegis Software built manufacturing software able to handle the extreme complexity of electronics assembly and traceability. As result of this heritage, today’s solution suite handles the most complex discrete manufacturing scenarios with ease and elegance ensuring quicker time to value for our customers," stated Spera. "It is FactoryLogix' unique level of configurability and robust capabilities that enable companies to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits in a cost-effective manner. Our platform makes it easy for manufacturers to evolve from predetermined, inflexible and linear processes to the Industry 4.0 ideal. A manufacturing paradigm in which the factory automatically adapts to mass customization, single-piece flow while accommodating ever-changing marketing conditions, regulations, customers and partners in their supply chain."

The Importance of Product Testing for Quality, Reliability and Durability

01/17/2018 | Patty Rasmussen, East West Manufacturing
One really vital piece of the product development process is product testing for quality, reliability and durability. You need to find out whether your product will do what it's supposed to do—that's quality. You also need to learn whether it will do what it's supposed to do over and over again, even when conditions aren't ideal—that's reliability and durability.

Improving Design, Manufacturing and Assembly Teamwork

01/15/2018 | Syrma Technology
Many electronics manufacturers tend to compartmentalize or "silo" their departments, such as the design team versus assembly-related functions. The relationship between design and manufacturing can too often be disconnected or otherwise poor, which stalls productivity and increases bottom-line costs. By identifying and addressing these gaps, this financial hemorrhage can be reduced, and profitability increased.

Tips & Tricks: Assembly Panelization

01/12/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Thoughtful PCB array and panel design can reduce line stoppage, improve changeover time and reduce material scrap. Fiducial location and design are good aids to prevent mistakes, but may still result in line stoppage. If you have fiducial recognition issues, making the shape of the mask opening different than the fiducial feature may help the vision system discern the target feature easier.
