Optimal Electronics Corporation, a global provider of innovative software solutions for the control and optimization of the electronics assembly process, announces that it has partnered with Calavista Software, a software development resources and tools company, to further extend its capabilities.

The Calavista Software team will be working with the Optimal Electronics development team to further expand and improve the capabilities of the Optel MES (Manufacturing Execution System) software suite. This will include leveraging their software development tools, processes, and both local and remote software development engineers.

This includes the award-winning dynamic production scheduling, line balancing, multi-vendor machine programming and optimization, kitting, real-time material management, and component traceability. This offering is supported by the company's vast application experience to help manufacturers achieve their production and quality goals.

"We partnered with Calavista to accelerate our growth based on their experienced team of software engineers, their processes, and their best-of-breed tools and methodology," said Jim Havener, Chief Operating Officer of Optimal Electronics. "We have been engaged with them for many months and have been impressed with their balanced approach of local project management and engineering coupled with tools to effectively leverage low-cost development and QA resources in other geographies."

"Calavista is excited to deepen our relationship with Optimal Electronics," said Lawrence Waugh, Chief Operating Officer of Calavista. "It's a great opportunity for us. Over the past year, we've become convinced that Optel is the best product of its kind in the market, and we are looking forward to helping Optimal grow it into the industry leader."
