Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced today the release of version 5.0 of its suite of technologically advanced manufacturing software.
Version 5 of Eyelit Manufacturing™ launches powerful new capabilities and modules designed specifically to help manufacturers accelerate experimentation and reduce the time to market for new product introductions. The release leverages advanced technology to lower the cost of quickly deploying and adapting automation, and to provide mobile, real-time visibility into manufacturing operations. Version 5 is extremely valuable in helping companies streamline operations in fast-changing, high-mix environments.
The new Eyelit Automated Data Services™ module dramatically lowers the time and cost of automation through an innovative scripting engine that enables end users to quickly integrate tools and systems. The new Eyelit Operational Data Store™ module transforms transactional data in real time, populating a long-term historical database. The configurable schema can be tailored to make it simple for users to generate their favorite types of visual information with any application. The enhanced Eyelit Reporting™ module provides dynamic visibility by enabling users to incorporate reports and graphs in configurable panes within user interfaces on the factory floor, and supports “anywhere access” through the recently released Eyelit Mobile Web Portal™. The new Eyelit Special Processing™ module supplies process engineers with intuitive, drag-and-drop capabilities to add and remove version-controlled special instructions for experimentation and rapid development of new products.
Enhancements in Version 5 of the core Eyelit MES™ and Eyelit Asset Management™ modules present a host of new features for durables management, material consumption-based maintenance triggers, and other systematic controls. The Eyelit Platform™ workflow engine extends the flexible rules for evaluating variables within conditional manufacturing and business process flows to enable the configuration and enforcement of virtually any complex, multi-dimensional scenario.
Version 5 was developed in close collaboration with customers, and includes features introduced during implementations of Version 4. By expediting the roll out of new features during implementation projects, users were delighted to take advantage of innovative capabilities they desired without having to wait for the next major release. This style of rapid development sets Eyelit apart as a software company. Each major version of Eyelit products makes newly introduced capabilities available to all customers.
