Analytic Systems Implements Aegis MFG Software
Analytic Systems is a “Lean” Canadian manufacturer of high performance power conversion products: battery chargers, dc/ac inverters, dc/dc converters and power supplies. They are in the process of implementing their recently purchased Aegis Manufacturing Operations Software which is designed to improve efficiencies and quality by streamlining and controlling process planning and launch, process tracking and control, and quality and test management. It will increase flexibility and traceability.
Analytic Systems saw some very specific benefits in purchasing Aegis software. “The Aegis implementation will
complement our lean enterprise, giving us comprehensive tracking of materials with validation control in all our work
centers on the floor and accurate visualization of current information targeted at each work-center” commented Paul
Bowler, VP Operations. Analytic Systems is quality certified to ISO9001-2008 and AS9100 mainly for is military work
which is about 70% of their current production.
The Aegis software installation covers five of Analytic Systems’ manufacturing cells, from the surface mount process,
directly integrating with Mydata MY100 pick and place machines, to the card test, box build and final assembly
operations. This enables full genealogy and material traceability of each power system shipped. Aegis’ support of
Analytic Systems’ team with implementation and training as well as the software has been delivered on schedule, and
in Analytic Systems’ view proved highly beneficial during their changeover to their new, paperless manufacturing
Determining where all the work orders are located throughout the factory is now a matter of accessing real-time
information. Customer service often depends on having the information they need when they need it. Aegis allows
Analytic Systems to track WIP progress and provide predictive job completion times, which is important to Analytic
Quality has to be a "given" in any manufacturing process. The Aegis software provides Analytic Systems with the
required information to build the product correctly and to verify the quality while the work is still in process so any
corrections can be made. The Aegis software collects data and puts it into reports, visualizations, and real-time
dashboards that will be used by Analytic Systems to constantly improve productivity, quality and efficiency.
Traceability of every product is also achieved and allows failures and rejections to be tracked down and eliminated
before they become an issue for the customer.
Analytic Systems' President, Jim Hargrove, summed it up when he said, "We want to be the best of the best, which is
why we've made this investment in technology. We're taking the necessary steps for continuous improvement of our
processes and efficiency so we can provide our customers with a superior product."
