Many Years’ Experience of Aegis Software Prompts Head Electronics’ Upgrade to FactoryLogix

Head Electronics BV, founded in 1987, specializes in designing and assembling industrial electronics products. The company is a one-stop shop providing development services and global sourcing of components and circuit boards as well as electronics assembly.  With ISO 9001:2008 certification, Head’s operations run from prototyping to volume production, from individual PCB to full system and from conventional to fine pitch SMD.

As Aegis manufacturing execution software users since 2009, Head now wishes to replace its existing Version 7 system with the latest generation of FactoryLogix manufacturing software. FactoryLogix’ process methodology is seen as a great improvement, particularly in the Hand Build area where work stations are static and process flow is not amenable to a repeatable line set-up.

Work instructions will use FactoryLogix’ configurable operator interface templates to improve the operators’ experience while employing the software. The NPI module will be used to author electronic work instructions for circuit card, mechanical, cable and final integration assembly areas while generating outputs for Samsung pick and place machines.

WIP tracking and manufacturing execution will be handled by electronically tracking products through their entire shop floor route, referencing both their base level and system build aspects. Completed assemblies will also be followed through the pack-out process. Aegis xLink connections will be used to automate data collection from AOI and test equipment.

FactoryLogix’ RMA process will be fully utilised in improving Head’s repair procedures, as it aligns very well with their RMA requirements. Analysis, reporting and visibility across the process will also be improved; Head will be using Aegis’ standard chart & report templates with real-time dashboards to give visibility of key performance indicators. Email reports will be produced at scheduled intervals and automatically distributed to relevant recipients.
