Aegis Software Announces Latest FactoryLogix Release, Providing Game-Changing Automate-to-Order Out-of-the-Box
Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Execution Software (MES), today announces the general availability of FactoryLogix® 2020.1. As an industry leader in MES, Aegis continues to deliver unique capabilities for discrete manufacturers to achieve ultimate agility, maximum efficiency, and exceptional customer service. With FactoryLogix 2020.1, Aegis further empowers manufacturers to automatically achieve full personalization and single-piece-flow of even highly complex assemblies without any customization required to the software. Any discrete manufacturer, utilizing FactoryLogix, can now offer fully automated, on-demand personalization, but achieve this with efficiencies previously only possible in high-volume manufacturing of unchanging product types. A distinct competitive advantage for manufacturers considering the market trend toward customers expecting lower prices and yet higher personalization of their products.
It is without a doubt that the trend towards personalized products is permeating every manufacturing industry. In a recent Gartner (News - Alert) survey, "CEOs have recognized that they need to pursue a higher degree and pace of strategic change than a decade ago (87% for customer-product-centric and 85% for asset-product-centric respondents to the Gartner 2019 CEO and Senior Business Executive Survey). Personalization is creating more direct interactions with customers, and organizations have already begun pursuing direct sales with customers (56% of customer-product-centric and 35% of asset-product-centric respondents to the CEO survey say they have matured or are growing direct sales/disintermediation)."
"This new release is a game-changing moment in the discrete manufacturing industry. For the first time, manufacturers will be able to manufacture products in which each subsequent unit heading down the production lines has unique assembly route steps, operator instructions, measurements, components, and processes and yet the MES system automatically adapts and supports this production without any setup, scripting, coding or configuring, by engineering or IT. The work instructions, quality control, and production process workflows all dynamically and automatically adapt to the requirements each unique piece, simply by electronically intercepting the unique product configuration to be built for that customer. Automate-to-Order is a compelling and powerful capability for manufacturers of any size producing any personalized discrete product. Today, the demand for personalization is pervasive, regardless of the type of product being produced. Until today, with FactoryLogix 2020.1, thee wasn't a software solution on the market that could support this type of on-demand personalization without configuration or coding, or engineering defining a process for each possible permutation in the MES system-which is impractical in all but the most basic personalization scenarios," stated Jason Spera, CEO, Aegis Software. "Additionally, our expanded capabilities such as Advanced Quarantine are elevating zero-defect quality control to identify, contain, and execute resolution to problem products in the most cost- and time-efficient manner mitigates risk and protects the manufacturer's brand."
FactoryLogix 2020.1 delivers enhancements, across the entire platform, below are just a few of the industry-leading features and benefits offered in this new release:
