Eyelit’s smart factory solution to accelerate New Product Introductions (NPI), supporting Industry 4.0

Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations announced today that Enovix Corporation, an advanced lithium-ion battery technology leader, has selected Eyelit MES™ suite to support factory build out and ramp to high volume production.

Enovix is implementing Eyelit’s integrated manufacturing software suite at their Silicon Valley facility to help manage production of their advanced 3D Silicon™ lithium-ion batteries for mass-market applications. The deployment includes Eyelit’s unified event-based applications spanning MES, recipe management, tool management, SPC, quality management and nonconformance management (OCAPs). Eyelit‘s integration software is also being used for equipment automation including connecting directly to programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

"Enovix is constructing and equipping the first U.S. facility for production of our advanced silicon-anode lithium-ion battery," said Karl Schneider, Head of IT, Enovix Corporation. "We use a stringent process to evaluate and select enterprise software. Eyelit MES was selected in large part due to flexible, out-of-the-box integration with equipment and other enterprise software applications, including PLM and ERP."

The entire Eyelit suite includes a graphical ‘Scenario’ modeling engine to simplify integration with equipment, enterprise level applications and quickly add business rules within the application framework. Real-time SPC features include dynamic limits and watchdog timers which are fully integrated with Eyelit’s quality management for 8D, OCAP and NCR processes.

"We are pleased to add Enovix to Eyelit’s growing clean-tech customer base. This selection is another validation of Eyelit’s ability to handle diverse manufacturing such as hybrid semiconductor and roll-to-roll processing," stated Dan Estrada, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, Eyelit. "Eyelit’s proven integration capabilities and demonstrated ability to connect directly to machine PLC’s, without the need for third party software, was another key differentiator recognized by Enovix."
