Eyelit Inc. Announces Version 5.3 of Its Manufacturing Execution (MES) and Quality Management (QMS) Software

Software enhancements will drive efficiency and improved quality in
diverse manufacturing segments

., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and
coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace and defense,
discrete electronics, life sciences, medical device, semiconductor, and
photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced today that version 5.3 of the Eyelit
™ software suite is now available.

Version 5.3 is a major software release that includes extensive
enhancements across the entire product line. Eyelit’s customer base has
expanded into various segments of both hybrid and repetitive discrete
manufacturing. The core MES system includes new features and
improvements to manage diverse processing techniques and support a
tremendous variety of innovative products and composite materials in
both R&D and manufacturing.

This release streamlines the methods for managing materials in discrete
manufacturing operations. There are new quality control features to help
customers handle discrepant material and its impact on work in process.
Eyelit Quality
Management (QMS)
™ and Special
™ improvements make quality management processes and
experimentation management faster for New Product Introduction (NPI).
Extensions to the ad hoc processing functions will help customers
improve yields and reduce costs. There are also powerful new inhibition
and dedication features that allow for better management and tracking of
complex routings, and enable the adjustment of processing restrictions
or limitations based on conditional rules.

Version 5.3 also includes improvements to Eyelit’s Operator
™ module, which enforces required operator training and
periodic retraining for designated operations and related equipment.
Furthermore, new rules are now available in the Advanced
™ module to factor in tool-specific capabilities, batch
sizes, dedications, inhibitions, and reservations for improved quality
and throughput. Customers have the ability to incorporate proprietary
custom rules and algorithms. The system can also track conformance to
the recommended sequence of operations for production optimization,
leading to improvements in cycle time, tool utilization, throughput, and
on-time customer delivery. The Asset
™ module was enhanced with additional scheduling options
to help improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

“Version 5.3 is a major breakthrough that reflects the extensive work we
have done with our customers in a growing number of industry segments,”
stated Dan Estrada, Eyelit’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. “Its
ease of use and speed of deployment for experiment management processes
will enable our customers to fully utilize production capacity for both
engineering and production runs. Our next release will provide major
enhancements for our foundry and contract manufacturing customers who
are interested in protecting critical customer information and strategic
intellectual property.”
