Aegis' Paperless Shop Floor Software to Improve Process and Efficiency for Chart Industries

Chart Industries is a global manufacturer of standard and custom engineered products and systems for a wide variety of cryogenic and gas processing applications. Their Canton, Georgia facility products range from portable oxygen containers to medium pressurized vessels often found in fast food restaurants. Production, which is greatly vertically integrated and labor intensive, depends in highly-skilled operators and technicians. In Chart Industries’ view, this operation will benefit significantly from the factory floor process control and continuous process improvement offered by Aegis FactoryLogix.

Currently, production data is transferred as time allows from paper-based forms to separate databases, making collation difficult. The single FactoryLogix database will resolve this while providing real-time data for intelligent decisions. Uniquely identified products will be subject to digital defect collection and repair operations with tracking and historical capture, while quality data collection, alarms and alerts will be real-time.

Aegis’ paperless documentation will ease and speed assembly effort through greater clarity and by allowing access only to relevant documentation. WIP tracking and route control with alarms will ensure correct process steps are followed. Aegis’ standard chart & report templates and real-time dashboards will give visibility to key performance indicators.

The software package will include licensing for NPI, Production Core, Logistics and Analytics as well as Dashboard Viewing. Custom code for a Distributed Production database will also be generated. Aegis will deploy the complete system, including remote installation of the FactoryLogix database.
