Eyelit Releases Version 5.1 of Its Award-winning Manufacturing Execution (MES) Software Suite
Press release date: January 10, 2014
Toronto, Canada--Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, life sciences, MEMS, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced today the general availability of version 5.1 of its Eyelit Manufacturing suite of software.
The Eyelit 5.1 release was developed in close collaboration with customers to address their most pressing business challenges. Business leaders will be able to make more informed decisions for manufacturing efficiency and quality, and further accelerate new product introductions (NPI). The new Eyelit Special Processing module helps manufacturers to design experiments and test evolving processes and products. This enables engineers to quickly configure special instructions and processing that enforce special work requests (SWRs) for research and development projects. The new Eyelit Advanced Dispatching module helps manufacturers to systematically determine relative processing priorities and tradeoffs, which will improve sequencing of work. The Eyelit Platform now introduces a graphical Scenario Builder for end-users to configure flexible conditional manufacturing, as well as business-process and quality-management workflows. In addition, new highlights of the Eyelit SPC™ module include enhanced charting, filtering, calculations, metrics, and Nelson control rules.
Eyelit version 5.1 was recently introduced to customers at Eyelit's User Conference. Presentations and demonstrations showcased 5.1 product enhancements. Customers shared current best practices as well as creative ideas about how 5.1 can be leveraged to further reduce manufacturing and engineering costs, eliminate paper, accelerate process changes, and utilize instant access to lot information with more data than ever before. Attendees praised the excellent keynote address, "Benefits of Migrating from Legacy MES to Eyelit for Aerospace Microelectronics Manufacturing," which was presented by Dr. Donald Sawdai, Senior Staff Engineer and Special Projects Manager at Northrop Grumman. Dr. Sawdai explained how going live in production with Eyelit has not only been a migration from the companies' end-of life MES, but also has enabled the reduction of hardware and software costs and the elimination of up to 100 custom applications, which had been used to fill gaps in the legacy MES.
"Version 5.1 was well received at the 2013 conference," stated Dan Estrada, Eyelit's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. "Many of our customers have recently migrated to Eyelit MES from legacy MES solutions, such as PROMIS and WorkStream, to accelerate all aspects of their manufacturing operations. Eyelit's enhanced product line will help our customers improve their cycle times, factory efficiencies, and deliveries to their customers. This also lays the foundation for Eyelit to develop a factory scheduling solution in the near future, which will enable further improvements in productivity."
