Solyndra opts for Eyelit's Manufacturing Software Suite for FAB 2

Solyndra Inc of Fremont, CA, USA has selected Eyelit’s Manufacturing Software Suite (MES) to support its copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) PV production at its new automated factory (FAB 2).

Eyelit Inc of Toronto, Canada is a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, quality and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace and defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries.

Eyelit’s software was previously deployed in Solyndra’s first factory to track, monitor and provide full visibility throughout the front-end (process) and back-end (assembly) manufacturing processes. The software provides tube-level traceability and is integrated with Solyndra’s Material Control System, to ensure the correct delivery of product to factory tools with the use of automated guided vehicles, conveyors and robots, says Eyelit.

“After evaluating competitive solutions in the marketplace, we concluded that Eyelit continues to be the right choice for Solyndra’s manufacturing software needs going forward. Eyelit offers strong support and they are very open to customer feedback and to working closely with us to continually improve our processes,” said Paula Camporaso, Solyndra’s VP of information technology.
