The First Ultra-Secure, IIoT-based Smart Factory Achieved by Lockheed Martin, with IPC-CFX and Aegis' FactoryLogix

01/11/2022 | 09:59am EDT

The IPC-CFX IIoT-based, "Plug and Play" Standard is Successfully Utilized, Together with Aegis' FactoryLogix MES Platform, Across All Key Process Types

Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management Software (MOM/MES), announces that Lockheed Martin's Lufkin facility, have connected key SMT machines of all key types using the IPC-CFX standard, providing IIoT data for Aegis' FactoryLogix MES platform in a single standard language, contextualizing accurate, timely, detailed data into Smart manufacturing values, all in a highly secure environment.

"There are so many opportunities for the enhancement of manufacturing through the Smart use of data, which FactoryLogix MES provides for us," stated Jarrod Webb, Manufacturing Robotics Engineer, Lockheed Martin, who continues, "We require stringent security for our manufacturing and product data. The unique nature of the IPC CFX standard, with qualified "plug and play" capability, means that we now have just one, single manufacturing data protocol, with a built-in common language, generated natively by machines, greatly simplifying our manufacturing IT requirements, avoiding the risk and costs associated with third-party middleware, that other machine connection methods represent. Only in this way could we achieve our data-driven, Smart manufacturing goals, differentiating us by contributing significantly to the success and sustainability of our manufacturing business unit, reflected by additional value for our customers."

The adoption of IPC-CFX by Lockheed Martin's key machine vendors, with qualification of their support for CFX by IPC, as well as the utilization of IPC-2581 design data for reference during setup, eliminates the need for data in other formats, including paper, thus eliminating needless exposure of critical data.

"Lockheed Martin's Lufkin facility sets the bar for Smart, data-driven manufacturing in security-conscious sectors of the industry, demonstrating the value of interoperability of data from all vendors securely connected to our IIoT-based FactoryLogix MES platform. Lockheed Martins' enduring commitment to establish collaborative Smart, Industry 4.0 data exchange with CFX, and utilization of advanced MES solutions, is an inspiration to manufacturers and machine vendors throughout the industry. CFX usage has meant zero custom machine adapter development in this deployment, it just works," stated Jason Spera, CEO, and Co-Founder, Aegis Software.
