Aegis Helps Protoduction Bring Designs from 'Concept 2 Reality'


Reading time ( words)

Protoduction Inc., a product design and manufacturing company, has selected Aegis Software's FactoryLogix platform to streamline and optimize its prototyping and manufacturing processes to ensure the highest level of quality while accelerating time to market.

Protoduction's proprietary process, "Concept 2 Reality", bridges the gap between design engineering and manufacturing, providing customers with a consultative approach to product development. A detailed understanding of challenges that commonly arise during production allows Protoduction to design and build prototypes that avert these potential conflicts when the product reaches that stage. The company's focus includes medical device prototyping and helping customers ensure that the proper controls are used throughout the design and manufacturing process.

Aegis' FactoryLogix MES guides and monitors the new product introduction (NPI) process, enabling the fastest launch to production while ensuring quality control. The software's digital work instructions and user-defined process modeling allow for improved efficiency and reduced risk.

Paul Skehan, president of Protoduction, stated, "Many of our customers outsource because they are looking for a more collaborative design and manufacturing approach. What sets Protoduction apart is our ability to apply the controls of a larger supplier with the speed and flexibility of a smaller operation. The FactoryLogix platform provides us with a feature-rich foundation, out-of-the-box, that can be easily adapted as needed. FactoryLogix’s configuration capabilities provide us the flexibility to create a compelling competitive advantage for our company. By incorporating industry best practices all on a single end-to-end platform, FactoryLogix eliminates the need for disparate systems enabling us to reduce costs, improve quality, drive transparency, and speed development for our customers."
