M.e.s. - Manufacturing Execution System
Innovation and Technology at the service of industry 4.0.
FactoryLogix® is the global platform developed by Aegis Industrial Software Corporation that blends knowledge and experience withinnovation and IoT technologies developed to support Industry 4.0.
A state-of-the-art solution, built with easily configurable modules to support companies in the management of the entire production cycle: introduction and launch of new products, planning, management and execution of operations, materials logistics, quality management and real-time analysis tools.
FactoryLogix® is a MES system that manages, monitors and synchronizes in real time the execution of physical processes involving the transformation of raw materials into semi-finished and/ or finished products. The MES is able to dialogue with business management systems (ERP), with software for product lifecycle management (PLM), acquire data from machines and from this interaction it is possible toplanand coordinate the execution of production orders. Finally, the MES application provides feedback on process performance, supports component and material traceability, product genealogy, and process history.
cost reduction strategy and evaluation
With more than 2000 installations worldwide it is a solution that integrates all the typical aspects of production and transforms it into a truly adaptive environment, interconnected with production machinery and integrated with business management systems, able to improve the company’s performance and the quality of the final products.
FactoryLogix compared to generic MES software has over 20 years of international development with comprehensive features for manufacturers across industries, including electronics, medical devices, aerospace and defense, automotive, industrial equipment, and consumer goods.
Applications and characteristics
The NPI (New Product Introduction) module offers a complete set for the control of the CAD design software, easily assigning the BOM components to the work stations, being guided into the compiling of the processing instructions, creating process templates, planning and managing the production resources.
The ability to share tasks between large groups of engineers drastically reduces the time intercurring between research, development and production, enabling greater operational efficiency, faster decision making process, quality improvement and visibility.
This application is conceived to quicken the information exchange between designing and production, reduce the paper use and monitoring the productive cycle processing.
The module, installed on the work stations through a configurable and user-friendly interface offers a wide variety of possibilities to assist the line operators: it allows to display the support information for the assembly, paired with video and digital 3D models, to report any problem occurring during the assembly process or the repairing and request materials
A single interface which guarantees simplicity, efficiency and cost control.
An efficient and high-quality production process requires that raw materials are always available in the right place at the right time, with a stock proportionate to the capacity of suppliers and the demand of the production line.
FactoryLogix® monitors production and automatically reacts to line requests, ensuring an appropriate supply for proper production planning.
The application can be installed on touch devices such as tablets or PDAs, allowing speed of operations and convenience for operators.
The greatest value of a MES system is the information it makes available, therefore FactoryLogix provides a form to organize the data that the user needs in a simple and easy way. Graphical Reports and charts that - configurable not only by the IT office - allow management to immediately receive the information they need while automatic notifications facilitate the work of management and quality staff.
The Dashboards allow to show in real time the development of the lines, while the alarms promptly notify managers and maintenance workers in the event of line stops or failures.
The add-on module for Quality management amplifies the potential of the Production and Analytics modules, allowing management of Non-Conformities and taking corrective actions according to the CAPAS and FRACAS methodologies
For the purposes of connectivity and the circulation of information, the MES allows to collect data from production lines and machines through generic or specific integrations for the different equipment manufacturers, to use OPC UA connections to facilitate the exchange of data between logic controllers programmable (PLC) and human-machine interfaces (HMI) and to fully exploit the potential of the protocol
xTend: SYSTEM-TO-SYSTEM INTEGRATION
The integrations allow you to dynamically transfer data to and from ERP business management systems and systems for managing the life cycle of PLM products.
Using the IPC CFX protocol, Canavisia IoT devices integrate perfectly with the FactoryLogix system and allow even older machinery to transmit data on consumption and production flows in a non-invasive way.
Canavisia is the official distributor for the Italian market of the FactoryLogix® MES developed by Aegis Industrial Software Corporation.
