SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 19, 2019 — Arch Systems, provider of a leading machine-data-sensing platform compatible with both legacy and new industrial machines, today announced an agreement with Flex, the global supply chain and manufacturing company, to supply real-time access to and analysis of manufacturing data at its facilities.

“We’re deploying Arch’s technology at key digital factories to capture the relevant analytics and help us drive production efficiencies, process automation and predictive analytics,” explains Gus Shahin, chief information officer at Flex. “Arch can pull raw data from existing and new machines to help us generate actionable metrics, one of the core competencies of our digital factory. As part of our Industry 4.0 journey, we are excited to partner with Arch and leverage its leading-edge technology.”

“Flex and Arch form a powerful combination,” says Andrew Scheuermann, CEO and cofounder of Arch Systems. “As a global manufacturing leader, Flex is leveraging the value of accurate, real-time supply chain information to drive efficiency and innovation for its customers, while empowering live machine data and a data exchange to further embrace Industry 4.0 on the factory floor. Flex owns and operates a broad portfolio of new and legacy production machines, which posed a challenge in the Industry 3.0 world. Through our partnership and the Arch Factory Exchange, this is becoming an unmatched asset to achieve flexible, intelligent manufacturing. This is just the beginning.”
