TORONTO: Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced that Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc., a developer of flexible, thin-film photovoltaic modules, has selected Eyelit’s Manufacturing Software Suite to support PV production ramp in at its FAB 2 in Thornton, Colorado.

Eyelit’s solution is used to track, monitor, and provide product visibility throughout Ascent Solar’s manufacturing process, from incoming rolls to completed PV solar modules, as a press release tells. With the implementation of Eyelit’s software, Ascent Solar is able to consolidate several homegrown Microsoft Access databases and Excel-based tracking sheets, and reduce paper travelers on the production floor. Eyelit’s Asset Management solution enables improvement in managing equipment maintenance and automation of critical processes integral to thin-film PV production. Eyelit’s Asset Management provides tool monitoring, management of maintenance tasks, as well as built-in warnings, alerts, and logbooks for improved communications in maintenance operations and greater efficiency in equipment utilization.

“I’m impressed with Eyelit’s capability and flexibility as compared to other MES solutions I’ve used in PV. Eyelit’s experience and familiarity in thin-film PV manufacturing has been a big plus. Our implementation is progressing according to our plans and is on track to meet our go-live date at the end of the month. Eyelit’s manufacturing software is outstanding in price and quality,” said Zane Rakes, Ascent Solar’s Vice-President of Manufacturing.
