Aegis Software today announces that the Connect Group has chosen Aegis’ FactoryLogix® digital MES platform, across their four manufacturing sites within Europe, providing contiguous execution management and exact traceability.

The Connect Group’s high-end customers, expect nothing short of perfection in manufacturing, which includes complete traceability of production in the form of the comprehensive digital build record of materials and processes that Aegis’ FactoryLogix MES solution provides. With complex, critical products manufactured across multiple manufacturing sites, the challenge was to ensure seamless manufacturing execution with the highest level of traceability, which could no longer be met by legacy tools.

Dirk Van Benthem, IT Application Manager, Connect Group commented, “During the selection process, we were impressed with the way that Aegis’ engineers were knowledgeable about our needs, being specialists equally in SMT (Surface Mount Technology), post-SMT and non-electronic assembly processes. They looked after every aspect of the integration with machines, business systems, and operational processes, providing dependable pricing against well-defined objectives, which clearly differentiated Aegis from other vendors we evaluated.”

Aegis’ FactoryLogix brings in-depth, live visibility of the operation, providing key manufacturing metrics across every aspect of shop-floor management. Being SAP certified, FactoryLogix easily utilizes this data to provide a significant enhancement to existing enterprise business systems.

Daniel Walls, European Managing Director, Aegis software stated, “This is a great example of how FactoryLogix stands out as the most modern digital MES application in the industry, connecting directly with machines and automated processes, as well as managing and supporting manual operations, combining every facet of manufacturing information to meet advanced customer needs with standard functionality. FactoryLogix operates end to end throughout the whole production flow, no matter where it may be located.”

With Aegis software as an integral part of their manufacturing technology, the position of Connect Group as the most capable, reliable, and cost-effective supplier in the industry is firmly underpinned, as more customers than ever before require the highest level of digital manufacturing expertise.
