WHY THE IPC CONNECTED FACTORY EXCHANGE STANDARD (CFX) IS CRITICAL FOR SUCCESSFUL INDUSTRY 4.0?

Michael Ford
Sr. Director Emerging Industry Strategy at Aegis Software Corporation

  • The new IPC CFX standard is unique in that it defines precise data content, as well as the protocol, for all messages
  • With a highly detailed and consistent dataset, more Industry 4.0 related value can be derived from MES
  • Context of data is qualified from data of many processes, aiding live decision-making and process optimization.
  • Machines are treated as “plug and play”, with very flexible control and planning, enabling Industry 4.0

Working for Aegis Software, provides Michael the opportunity to apply his years of electronics assembly manufacturing experience, to drive both business process and technology solution innovation, that satisfies evolving needs in digital manufacturing, in a way that is value-driven and sustainable. Starting his career with Sony, including eight years working in Japan, Michael has been instrumental in creating and evolving leading software solutions for assembly manufacturing, that meet the most demanding expectations, leading industry forward. Today, Michael is an established thought leader for Industry 4.0 and digital Smart factories, an active contributor to IPC industry standards, including the Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) “plug and play” IIoT standard, and chairs the IPC-1782 manufacturing traceability standard, promoting the complete IPC standards-based digital factory platform.

Manuel Berglund Erp Manager at Koenigsegg Automotive AB

Manuel studied automation as a student and started working in manufacturing industries from a very young age. His interest in technology led him to Koenigsegg 11 years ago and he has learned continually as he has progressed through the ranks. He started out as a technician in production and soon after, he became a team leader. From there, he started to work with product quality and as a test driver, the goal being to ensure that their cars were of an appropriate standard before they deliver them to customers. Later, he received an opportunity to start working as Production Manager, which he did for 3 years. It was during this time that he pushed the company to take a better advantage of Monitor – the ERP system that they use. That mission continued when he moved to the Purchasing department, learning strategies for procurement and material flows within a manufacturing business. Koenigsegg has enjoyed steady growth over recent years and the organisation has changed a lot as a result of that growth. ERP is more important now than ever, and he has taken on the role as ERP Manager to educate staff and to further develop and integrate the ERP system within our business.

Jonas Persson Director of Business Development at Monitor Group

Jonas has always had an interest in technology (a lot of racing in go-karts, boats and motor cycles), which made it natural during the years of education to graduate as an engineer. Through the years he has had a number of positions (Production, Research and Development Manager). When he started at Monitor 2004 it was as business consultant and during those years he was involved in a large number of implementations projects in different types of industries. Each project has always given him some new knowledge about how to run a company. Then he was involved in sales for a number of years, which meant that his contact the network increased tremendously, and he had many from that period. Today, as Director of Business Development Monitor Group he’s mainly involved in the development of our foreign subsidiaries and partners, but also works with international coverage of our competitors.
