Sanmina-SCI Deploys Aegis Software
Horsham, PA — Aegis Software has been selected by Sanmina-SCI, a global Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) company, for deployment as that company's global manufacturing process software. While the business agreement for this selection was completed over a year ago, the two companies elected to wait to make this announcement until the successful deployment of the platform in the majority of printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) facilities across Sanmina-SCI's enterprise.

Aegis was chosen after a year-long evaluation of competitive software offerings conducted in real-world trials within Sanmina-SCI's Guadalajara, Mexico facility. This evaluation rated ease of use, reliability, the vendor's deployment capabilities, and programming capability for the customer's placement, assembly, process, and inspection equipment vendors and models. It was determined that Aegis offered the most comprehensive programming and visual documentation support delivered via a proven, easy-to-use interface that would expedite adoption and reduce maintenance and training overhead.

The Aegis system deployed by Sanmina-SCI expedites new product introduction (NPI) and ECOs. The NPI portion first imports customer CAD and BOM data, cleans errors, and runs comparisons. It then designs the route and creates the machine programs required for the job. The Sanmina-SCI deployment supports program generation for hundreds of unique makes and models of assembly, inspection, and process machines.
