Vistrian, a provider of manufacturing software, has been selected by thin-film PV developer NuvoSun to provide its FactoryLOOK and VistrianMES software systems to NovaSun's manufacturing operations.
FactoryLOOK allows for the gathering, analyzing and archiving of information from throughout the factory, including tooling, utilities, testing, metrology, recipe tracking and legacy data systems/databases. FactoryLOOK allows for the alerting and identifying of process anomalies and the ability to quickly identify factors affecting the development process or manufacturing process, thus reducing costs and reducing the development time of a product, according to the company.
The VistrianMES software allows for management of the factory's materials, workflow and long-term field correlation. Vistrian configures all elements of FactoryLOOK and VistrianMES without the need for a third-party integrator or internal IT department resources, the company adds.
