July 2, 2018 - Aegis Software, a provider of Manufacturing Execution Software (MES), announced the general availability of FactoryLogix 2018.1. This latest release extends its existing Incoming & In-Process Quality Assurance capabilities to deliver Administrative Quality Management. Administrative Quality Management provides a total solution covering Corrective Action and Preventive Action (CAPA), Material Review Board (MRB), and Failure Reporting, Analysis, and Corrective Action System (FRACAS).
FactoryLogix 2018.1 also delivers additional advancements across the entire platform. Below is a fraction of the features offered in this new release:
- Data Management with Archiving – Production data, captured on the factory floor can quickly become massive within a short timeframe, depending on the manufacturing environment. In this era of connectivity, big data and the ongoing management of that data is becoming paramount for many manufacturers. However, to continue to meet compliance and regulatory demands, that data needs to be easily accessible. With FactoryLogix Data Archiving, manufacturers can archive and auto-archive data which helps in reducing IT-related costs, improving system performance, and still able to access data if needed at any time.
- Collaboration & Communication – The enhanced Operator Feedback capabilities ensure that feedback and ideas are digitally captured, in real time, to foster an environment of collaboration and communication between production and engineering. Alarms & Workflows send feedback notifications to the right people at the right time as well as ensuring timely reviews and resolutions, before final approval.
- Embedded Excel –With FactoryLogix 2018.1, manufacturers can now use embedded Excel presented in the context of the user’s workflow, without needing to launch a second window or application to access that spreadsheet.
- Enhancements to Workflow Engine – With FactoryLogix 2018.1, there is now the added ability to create time-based conditions and workflows that span beyond a batch, assembly, revision, workstation, or line. For example, a manufacturer could create a workflow that triggers equipment inspection every 2 months, independent of production operations.
