PHILADELPHIA, PA October 26th 2006, - Aegis Industrial Software Corporation (Aegis), the leader in Manufacturing Information Management Systems, has been selected by Microboard Processing Incorporated (MPI) to install its integrated NPI/MES product suite. After successfully employing Aegis's new product introduction and paperless documentation software for many years, MPI will now implement the entire software system factory-wide. The deployment will position MPI to deliver full traceability and real-time production and quality visibility to their customers in the particularly demanding medical markets they serve.
"We picked one major manufacturing enhancement this year which we felt would be the single largest contributor towards giving our customers the information that we all need to better manage business and obtain the tracking functionality we required, and this was the project chosen - hands down," commented Mike Ellis, MPI President and COO. "In my mind, the Aegis NPI/MES functionality ranks equal in magnitude and perhaps higher in some aspects than a major ERP implementation in terms of effectiveness to our operation. We are extremely pleased to have this in full effect by the end of this calendar year."
To meet stringent medical manufacturing requirements, MPI requires a single system to manage all product, process, quality, test, machine and shop-floor materials data. Through a factory-wide deployment, Aegis's NPI/MES Software provides the necessary traceability for surface mount lots and also for materials through hand assembly, rework changes, test, diagnostics, and out through system integration and box build. Other added benefits of Aegis's NPI/MES software include factory-wide WIP visibility in real-time for efficient production analysis and job tracking, connection-level defect collection, repair automation, and quality analytics.
"MPI's deployment of our entire solution is particularly gratifying because they grew from utilizing NPI systems into this greater solution," said Jason Spera, Aegis CEO. "All product and process data they had processed for years through our front-end systems is now immediately usable in their new total MES system. It is a clear demonstration of the power of a scalable, singular solution from one vendor growing to meet the needs of a growing customer."
