Aegis Software has released of their completely redesigned Version 7.0 Manufacturing Operations System (MOS) software, addressing the growing need in high-reliability markets for comprehensive data visibility and product/process traceability.

V7 builds on the Aegis MOS concept of joining process planning and launch technology with factory execution. It also provides actionable real-time dashboards and analytics, all in one system and on a single data model. An activity-centric Web-browser-based interface provides a single access point for all manufacturing operations personnel, and delivers shop floor materials verification, paperless documentation, product tracking, interactive traceability, quality and repair, defect visualization, test and diagnostics, pack-out control, real-time monitoring, SPC, and reporting.

The new user environment provides a new level of productivity-enhancing features to the manufacturing environment while providing greater operator simplicity and speed. It also solves the persistent challenge for manufacturers who require real-time information dashboards, interactive data access, visualization for process improvement, and simplified management reporting.

Aegis' new solution offers iMonitor 2.0, enabling users to design their own real-time performance, quality, materials and production dashboards as easily as they would make a PowerPoint slide. The dashboards come alive on the factory's plasma monitors and at manager's desktops, drawing on the real-time data feeds from the standards-based Aegis data acquisition system, xLink.

In addition, V7 offers an online environment for exploring both forward and reverse traceability. This environment returns exact product content, environmental, machine, process, materials, test, measurement, upper and lower assembly, and shipment data.

Offering detailed historical analysis, the Aegis Data Miner graphically explores and visualizes the reservoir of Aegis MOS data and then publishes it in a report. This helps develop any output quickly and easily without involving IT personnel, a need for knowledge of SQL or any need to know the Aegis data model.

"It [Aegis V7] is the only singular system spanning planning and process design activities, extending all the way through what is typically called MOS, and including an array of data fulfillment and monitoring systems. This product scope would traditionally require multiple systems and integrators to achieve the same goal," said Aegis CEO Jason Spera. "However, with V7, we've brought something to the market that has powerful and clear benefits with regard to simplicity, cost, and data availability."

V7 has been tested during 2007 with selected customers and will be available to the Aegis customer base and the product assembly market this year.
