HORSHAM, Pa.—Karré Elektronik, a Munich-based supplier of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), has selected Aegis Software as its provider of IIoT-driven MES (manufacturing execution systems) software, according to a release from Aegis.
Aegis is a developer of MES software designed to help manufacturers improve speed, control, and visibility of their operations. The company’s IIoT-driven MES platform, FactoryLogix®, comprises execution management, Lean material management, advanced quality management, and analytics. It is said to represent “a natural and essential progression of manufacturing best practices, bringing software-driven automation to many time- and quality- critical areas of the daily factory operation.”
“Being flexible and competitive are key strategies that maintain Karré’s value differentiation in the market,” said Alexander Jung, chief technical officer, development and project management for Karré Elektronik, in a news release. “The adoption of Aegis’s paperless work instructions enables complex, high-mix assembly production, with volatile customer demands, to be executed efficiently without risk of mistakes. But that was just the start. Having a seamlessly integrated MES, including Lean material management, means that we are in complete control of key production operations and dependencies, all in one place. All of the activities and status updates can be seen immediately through dashboards and analytics, all the way up to the enterprise level, and across sites.”
