Silicon Forest Electronics, a US electronics contract manufacturing services firm, has selected manufacturing systems from Aegis Industrial Software Corporation to speed up and improve its product launch and shop floor execution capabilities.
Silicon Forest provides prototype and production services to many leading electronics companies, including Hewlett Packard, Sharp, and Nintendo. The manufacturer has been using Aegis’ new product introduction systems for several years, and hopes that expanding into Aegis’ full manufacturing execution system product will greatly increase its ability to meet and exceed clients’ stringent shop floor information management demands, particularly in the defense market.
Aegis is a proven product we have used to satisfy our customer’s demand for responsiveness and reliability for years, commented Peter Wong, Silicon Forest’s vice president of technology. Extending our solution to include shop floor functions offers our clients greater speed of service, process control and information visibility. Deployment of the paperless functionality alone proved to save 400 man-hours monthly.
