#Productronica Manufacturing operations management software.

Aegis is to unveil the latest version of their market leading manufacturing operations management software, FactoryLogix at Productronica (Nov 10th to 13th in Munich D). The new release embraces the principles of Industry 4.0 and Aegis has chosen Productronica as the first public demonstration.

The new version incorporates an entirely re-designed Logistics module based on the same technology framework as the NPI, Production and Analytics modules found in FactoryLogix, replacing the solution’s previous integration with the diplan software suite.

New and enhanced features in FactoryLogix R3 include:

  • materials receiving, processing and labeling;
  • incoming quality control (IQC);
  • stockroom management;
  • material kitting and dispatch;
  • material position tracking;
  • moisture sensitive device (MSD) handling and bake management;
  • production planning;
  • resource scheduling;
  • material reservation;
  • shop floor material handling;
  • workstation material setup validation;
  • offline material setup;
  • material traceability;
  • material level monitoring;
  • part replenishment and re-order.

Daniel P. Walls, Europe Regional Director of Aegis said “We really look forward to demonstrating these powerful features to the market in Munich. They bring together the combined knowledge and experience of Aegis and diplan, and really deliver on much of the value promised by Industry 4.0”. Daniel went on to say “Two years ago at Productronica, Industry 4.0 was concepts, ideas and marketing talk. Now we think it’s time to deliver and we believe that this version of the software does that and more”.

This year Aegis’ booth will feature a simulated manufacturing environment, taking visitors through the user experience in each area of the factory, from engineering, to the stockroom, onto the production floor, and into the manager’s office. Dr. Friedrich W. Nolting of Aegis Germany added, “This year’s stand brings together the added value resulting from Aegis’s acquisition of diplan, the FactoryLogix software solution, and the application of Industry 4.0 principles – all demonstrated with a visual and interactive way”.
