Speed, Control and Visiblity for Manufacturing Operations
Currently Distron Corporation is utilizing Aegis Software platforms to run their Contract Manufacturing business. Ensuring the right document is in use at each work station demands constant management, and overlooking that can lead to product rework or scrap. Beyond revision control, operators need detailed and searchable documentation to build a quality product. The Aegis platform, FactoryLogix meets these challenges. Visual documentation created in the NPI module is dispatched automatically to each workstation under revision control and presents searchable, interactive multimedia documentation targeted perfectly where and when it is needed. Critical assembly processes demand both control and evidence that an operator’s work was performed correctly. For a given instruction step, operators may need to record a setting value, acknowledge the step was performed, have an inspector or inspectors confirm the work meets spec, and/or provide photographic evidence of the completed step. FactoryLogix provides this support, fluidly guiding the operator through their sequential build process, enforcing capture of the required steps, and providing evidence of the work performed as part of the unit’s build history. The task of determining where all work orders and units are located throughout the plant is, in reality, among the most difficult. FactoryLogix solves this problem by digitally tracking every unit factory-wide, making this information available in real-time. Products may be built in batches and/or as serialized units.
