Aegis Software operates in more than 1700 factories worldwide, spanning the aerospace, automotive, defense, electronics, industrial and medical device manufacturing industries. Their FactoryLogix system was built from the ground up to provide a flexible, modular, and scalable solution to deliver operational efficiency at nearly every point in the manufacturing process.
Jason Spera, CEO explains: “We come from a manufacturing background and understand the challenges our customers face. Slow job launches, complex assemblies, missed production targets, quality issues, competitive pressure, and regulatory burdens all threaten their profitability. FactoryLogix is designed to meet these operational challenges head-on.”
Jason goes on to say: “Our NPI application accelerates new product introductions while our Logistics system dictates the efficient flow of materials between the stockroom and assembly lines. Our MES software tracks and controls assemblies as they move through the various stages ofproduction, leveraging paperless shop floor terminals, and wireless handhelds to deliver interactive visual aids and setup instructions. All the while, our Analytics engine monitors these activities, providing real-time process and asset performance monitoring, along with incredibly rich historical reports.
FactoryLogix differs from other systems on the market in its ability to provide a fully configurable solution that allows customers to do most of their own customization. Users can create their own dashboards, reports and shop floor interfaces using simple drag-and-drop modules, with no need for advanced coding skills or support from an overstretched IT department. Spera told us: “Many competing systems require complex or hard-coded customization, which—apart from being extremely costly—can delay the deployment of the software and cripple its flexibility.” Jason added: “This often means that you really don’t know exactly what you’re going to endup with or how much it’s ultimately going to cost. At Aegis we are very clear on the system scope, price, and timeframe to deploy. What we quote is what you pay.”
