Nov 15, 2007

Los Alamitos, CA � November 14, 2007 � Aegis Industrial Software Corp. (Aegis), the leader in manufacturing information management systems, and Practical Components Inc. (Practical), the leading supplier of dummy components, have partnered to offer a traceability and control kit that validates manufacturing processes and provides detailed product and process traceability. The combined efforts have won the companies a Global Technology Award in the category of Components. The award was presented by Global SMT & Packaging Magazine�s Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Trevor Galbraith during a Tuesday, November 13, 2007 ceremony that took place at the Forum Area in Hall A6 during the Productronica Exposition

The Aegis Traceability and Control Validation Kit validates manufacturers� plant traceability and control, and is available for purchase in the 2007 Practical Components Catalog, which is designed to help engineers quickly find the products needed to qualify their assembly technology.

The kit provides the physical materials and procedural guide to determine a factory�s traceability and control capability, and rates the results in a formalized matrix. These ratings demonstrate manufacturers� capabilities, communicate these capabilities to customers or auditors, and provide a starting point for improving capabilities.

Practical�s free catalog is organized by package type/category with each product accompanied by drawings, description, and part number with special attention to lead-free availability and formulations. The updated Web site,, supports the catalog by providing more than 1,250 pages of dummy components, test boards, training and setup kits, component drawings, engineering/design guide data, daisy chain patterns, production tools, training aids, as well as a complete downloadable catalog.

The Global Technology Awards program is sponsored by Global SMT & Packaging Magazine, and is an annual celebration of product excellence in semiconductor packaging and electronics assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology in 23 key areas are chosen by a distinguished panel of global industry experts.
