Factory Logix makes an attempt to help EMS providers streamline their shop floor processes and create and host documents through one easy to use interface, but it typically does not work well in our factory. As a process engineer that has had to deal with implementation of the system as well as authoring the processes inside the system. I am well versed in the shortcomings of the Factory Logix system. The interface for writing work instructions is terrible and revision control to that level of the instruction is almost no existent. Through the two year that we have had the system in place. I have seen a myriad of bugs in the system. for the first year it was one work-around after another. We have been so busy trying to get the processes under control here we haven’t even turned on other functionality. I am fearful to do this as well since Factory Logix approach is that of a walled garden. In the future when my company changes direction in their instructions and accompanying software there will be no way to get the data out of this system and we will have no choice to start from scratch.
IF…IF your customer gives you the ECAD model for the board and IF…IF. the CAD is perfect it can help you realize your instructions easier. If you are stuck with Gerber files the process is not as easy.
The system has a lot of bugs in it. Its unfair to say that here since its not really a feature of the system. the fact that we are locked into this system for ever with all of our processes is probably my least favorite thing about the Factory Logix Suite
