Factory Logix saves us money and time

Any time we have had issues with the system, we needed to understand how something could be done in the system, or just general questions, the Aegis Support Team have never failed to be there for us. They are a World-Class group and always go above and beyond to help us out. With the features that Aegis' FactoryLogix offers, it has helped us get new customers as customers are asking for more and more things. We view FactoryLogix as both a manufacturing execution system and a sales tool! Aegis gives us a competitive advantage, enabling us to meet our customers' changing requirements, ultimately helping us to capture more business and consistently deliver exceptional products and customer service.

Pros

One of the major issues we had was paperwork on our production floor. The creation, distribution, and updating of paper documents on our production floor creates an extensive amount of work for our staff. With FactoryLogix we have gotten rid of all the paperwork we were creating. We went from having many cabinets full of paper documentation to all of our documentation now electronic. No longer do we have pages and pages for each work order. With FactoryLogix, if anything changes, we go into the system and immediately make any changes required, and the production floor gets those changes instantly. The entire documentation process is real-time and much easier. We can also now track the product from the cradle to the grave. Additionally, we can let our customers know if items inside any of the units have been replaced due to using Sub-Assembly collection capabilities. FactoryLogix has saved us much in the way of dollars and time of creating production orders. When it comes to reporting, while this is an area of the solution that we do not use as much, anytime we need something, a pre-existing report can be leveraged, or a new report can be created. The depth of information captured in the system provides us a rich data repository that can support any level of data investigation or reporting that we need.

Cons

We do not have any negatives to report about FactoryLogix. Whenever we were not sure how to use the solution to meet our needs, the Aegis team was always there to support us and help us with any challenge we encountered.

Manufacturing superior quality products with FactoryLogix

Aegis’ customer support team has been very accommodating when I have needed to reach out to them. They are very knowledgeable about the product they are supporting and always eager to help. There is also a customer support portal that offers numerous training videos. The portal has been a very helpful tool when new employees need introductory training. As a power user, I often refer to these videos as a refresher or learn new functionalities.

Pros

FactoryLogix has extensive quality management capabilities throughout the entire manufacturing process. As an OEM manufacturer with large work order quantities, the in-line first article feature in FactoryLogix allows us to catch and prevent incorrect builds, which provides high dollar cost avoidance. Regarding data collection, before using FactoryLogix, defects were generally applied at the component level making it difficult to extract useful information when investigating root cause. Now with FactoryLogix, we can enforce the level at which defects are assigned, which could be at assembly, component, or even down to the pin of a circuit board. This level of granularity gives us the rich data needed for accurate and efficient root cause analysis. FactoryLogix will automatically prompt the operator to perform quality checks periodically during the production process, ensuring that critical quality parameters are being met throughout production. Having the ability to catch non-conformances, while in-process, has dramatically reduced our amount of rework and associated costs. Additionally, we have instantaneous access to all quality data collected throughout the entire process, which we did not have before using FactoryLogix. This real-time access to information enables us to instantly trigger alarms if something is not performing as intended.

Cons

The response time of the software can sometimes be painful

Not ready for use in production. Still in beta testing phase.

I despise factory logic and am imploring our management to find a better alternative.

Pros

Digital traceability, digital download updates. Paperless.

Cons

Aegis Factory Logix software is a hot mess. We have been forced to use this software the last 2+ years in our manufacturing environment. Factory logic constantly has problems and comes across as being in alpha or beta testing phase. I’m not sure why this was rolled out for production with all the issues we experience with it. I’m constantly begging management to find a better solution to replace this software with. I used to beta test software at a different job and when I use factory logic I feel as if I am beta testing the software as I’m constantly reporting various issues with the software. The software doesn’t auto populate the operation you are playing so every single defect I mark up I have to go back and select the operation that defect was for. Also false defects enter when you click on your assembly in FL after documenting previous defects. Wherever you click it will enter the previous defect type wherever you click next. To be honest we were better off using paper to document defects than using this software. I’m not the one who decided to use this software for our organization but as a user and representive restive of others on our manufacturing floor we all hate it.

Spartronic’s Review of Aegis’ FactoryLogix MES Solution

Customer Support – Spartronics utilizes FactoryLogix at 6 facilities where proper production control is critical to our operations. When issues arise, the technical support Aegis provides is timely, knowledgeable, and constantly exceeds expectations.

Pros

• Traceability – In the highly regulated markets Spartronics serves, FactoryLogix fulfils the manufacturing requirements for product realization. Spartonics utilizes FactoryLogix for product and component level traceability, to provide controls for product measurement tracking, and to ensure all manufacturing operations are successfully completed. • WIP Tracking – With the high mix of products Spartronics manufactures, having real-time data on product status and location in WIP is crucial to our daily production planning. FactoryLogix also provides automated daily reports on product status on the manufacturing floor. • Quality Metrics – The quality reporting features of FactoryLogix provides Spartronics an extremely valuable tool to monitor process effectiveness and drive process improvements. These reports can be generated ad hoc, scheduled, or set up as alarm features to notify Engineering personnel if predetermined parameters are deviating from expected values. • Document Control – FactoryLogix provides Spartronics’ critical manufacturing process with paperless controls. FactoryLogix controls the build instructions, by assembly or process revisions, delivering the correct documentation to operators on the production floor. • Machine Data – Spartronics utilizes many different types of automated build and test devices. FactoryLogix integrates with those machines to automatically collect pass/fail and defect information.

Cons

None reported at this time. Experience has been very positive for the organization.

BTW has complete control, traceability & visibility with FactoryLogix

We pride ourselves in delivering top-notch service to our customers, so we expect this from vendors. While we are pleased with the benefits that continue to derive by using FactoryLogix, the product is only a piece of what we expected when we chose Aegis. The team behind the product was crucial in the overall implementation success, but also our ongoing success. Throughout our journey with Aegis Software, service and support has been unwavering and rapid when we need it. Their knowledge, responsiveness, and support have been necessary, given the critical role that FactoryLogix plays in our overall business. They are a true partner and dedicated to helping manufacturers be best-in-class.

Pros

Before we implemented FactoryLogix, one of our biggest challenges was related to paper documentation and enforcing its use and revision on the production floor. Paper documents would often get lost, or an incorrect document would be used that ultimately caused quality issues and negatively impacted our production schedules. When it comes to WIP tracking, before FactoryLogix, if we wanted to know the status of WIP, account managers would have to walk around the production floor to locate where their products were in process. FactoryLogix WIP tables and dashboards make all that a thing of the past. In our manufacturing environment, accurate and in-depth traceability is essential. With FactoryLogix, traceability is automatically inherent throughout the platform. In an instant, we can find out who did rework, when, why, and the entire history of the assembly for anyone who needs to see it. Without FactoryLogix’ rich quality data collection and reporting capabilities, our employees would still be wasting time manually entering quality data into spreadsheets to track and report on our quality metrics. While product features are important, it is sometimes challenging to find feature-rich and flexible software that is not complex or hard to use. So, ease of use was essential to us when we initially decided to select and implement FactoryLogix. We knew that if the solution wasn’t easy to use, we would have user adoption issues and never achieve the return or benefits we

Cons

We do not have anything to report on the negative side for this software.

Reasons for Choosing FactoryLogix

Overall it was the best fit for our business and ot had the features we needed.
